The Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign is…
…an apostolate within the Catholic Church, with a modern pastoral method and a specific objective to evangelize families in these new times. It is part of the Pilgrims’ Movement within Schoenstatt. It reaches out to everyone, promoting Christian values and providing deep encounters with Christ through Mary.
In the strength of the new evangelization, people are sent out from the Schoenstatt Shrine
- to bring the message of the gospel,
- to inspire hope in times of worries and needs,
- and to reach out into the homes and parishes with the three pilgrimage graces of the Schoenstatt Shrines:
- the grace of being at home,
- of inner transformation and
- apostolic fruitfulness.
The image of the Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt rotates every three days among the homes, families or individuals committed to the one particular image. The blessings and graces from the Schoenstatt Shrine are made available to all those who open their homes to Mary. Prayers and reflections are provided to make this possible. This apostolate is supported by the spirituality and pedagogy of Schoenstatt. Its organization allows both, the missionaries and those who receive the image of Mary to gather regularly or occasionally, as they see fit.
The regular visits of the Schoenstatt Pilgrim MTA to families, schools, jails, hospices and hospitals gives to this apostolate its unique character.
These visits remind us of three biblical scenes: at the Cross, when John received Mary and took her into his home; at the Visitation, when Mary arrived at the home of Elizabeth, bringing the presence of Christ into that household; and the Cenacle, when the apostles united in prayer with Mary, awaiting the coming of the Holy Spirit, became apostles for the world.
A phrase of St. Vincent Pallotti which expresses the evangelization aspect of the Pilgrim MTA is: “She is the Great Missionary; She will work miracles.”
