Schoenstatt/Fr. Joseph Kentenich books

Filed under: Catholic News,Schoenstatt — Fr. John Larson @ 2:49 pm

According to Amazon and other sources, many Schoenstatt books are out of print.

Well, actually, they aren’t. They are very much in print and available quite inexpensively.

Schoenstatt has not gone with the ISBN system, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

However, it makes the books fairly “invisible.”

You can order books like Mary Our Mother and Educator, Everyday Sanctity, God My Father, Marian Instrument Piety, The Marian Person, With Mary into the New Millennium, etc. from the Schoenstatt Sisters in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The Marian Person by Fr. Joseph Kentenich

Filed under: Catholic Devotions,Schoenstatt,Texts in Mariology — Fr. John Larson @ 3:03 pm

Purchase info: buy here.

This little book is worth its weight in gold. As a Marian of the Immaculate Conception (which is not related to the Schoenstatt movement, but we can certainly appreciate it), I am just blown away by the profound insights of Fr. Joseph Kentenich.

The book consists in conferences from 1924 and two sermons from 1965. They work together quite well. The key to this book is the definition Fr. Kentenich gives of the “Marian person:”

The Marian person is the person who understands as deeply as possible, in the spirit and light of faith, Mary’s role in the work of redemption, and allows her to permanently impact his practical life even to the last consequence, so as to become a holy apostle (pg. 21).

Anyone devoted to the Blessed Virgin should read this little book.

Mary, Our Mother and Educator

Filed under: Catholic Devotions,Schoenstatt,Texts in Mariology — Fr. John Larson @ 1:44 pm

Purchase info: buy here.

I’ve just discovered the writings of Fr. Joseph Kentenich, founder of the Schoenstatt movement. Wow. He has some incredible insights. And, his Mariology is quite practical, focusing on Our Lady’s intercession today, here and now, with us, including the idea of her educating us.

This book is quite helpful, since it gives an overview of how Fr. Kentenich sees Mary working in our lives:

As a side note… Fr. Kentenich also has some profound thoughts on humility, including the humility of Our Lady in a short book called He Exalts the Lowly.
