Pilgrimage to the House of the Virgin Mary

Father Johnson Nellissery, Schoenstatt Father, is taking a group of pilgrims to Greece and Turkey, September 30-October 10, 2017.  You are invited to consider this opportunity to follow the footsteps of St. Paul. 

Saint John was asked by Jesus to care for His Mother, so St. John took her to Ephesus where he built a hut for Mary until her last days on earth. Blessed (Sister) Catherine Emmerich (1774­1824) was a mystic and visionary who described the location of the hut. In 1896 this site was declared a Shrine of the Roman Catholic Church. Here miracles have been recorded and an apparition of Mary has been documented.  Many popes, including Pope Benedict XVI, have visited and celebrated Mass at the site.  Now our own Schoenstatt Father Johnson will celebrate Mass there, as part of our pilgrimage to Greece and Turkey as we follow St. Paul’s Footsteps. There’s still time to join us!

If you are at all interested, please come to our Greece Pilgrimage Meeting to be held on Saturday, July 22, 6:15 PM in Grace Hall at Saint Paul Catholic Church in South Austin (after the 5 PM Mass). Or for more information about the pilgrimage, contact Gina Rollman at ginarollman65@gmail.com.

May Crowning - "Queen of Merciful Hearts"

Our Mother and Queen was honored with the title “Queen of Merciful Hearts” when she was offered her beautiful crown filled with hearts with the names of her loving children. 

The coronation was held at the two covenant Masses, the May 15 Third Sunday Covenant Mass, celebrated by Fr. Hector Vega and the May 18 Covenant Day Mass celebrated by Fr. Patricio Rodriguez.  Arnie & Sonia Salinas felt very blessed to have the privilege of offering the crown in the Mass on May 15.  Lisa Perez had the honor and privilege of offering the crown to our Queen in the Mass on May 18.

                                                                                               

I am sharing an excerpt from a reflection by Cardinal Wuerl that helps us to understand that Marian feasts, devotions and traditions are celebrations of Jesus Christ.  Through them we learn how to stay close to him in prayer and through the practice of charity, with confidence that our prayers will be answered.
