Pilgrimage Prayer

Dear Mother and Mother of our Lord!
With great joy we start out on our pilgrimage to your shrine.
Father Kentenich's faith moved you 
to set up your home in Schoenstatt.
In the shadow of this shrine 
a family was born, 
a new spiritual way within the Church, 
a charism in the midst of our time.
We want to fill the jars with our gifts: 
With our gratitude and repentance, 
With our surrender and longing.
With every step we take on our pilgrim way we ask you:
Enkindle in us anew the fire of love for you, for Father Kentenich and for our family.
Mother, give us the strength 
to spread a covenant culture in our world today 
and educate us to be your true missionaries for this century.

Your covenant - our mission!
