Covenant of love

In the Covenant we renew the world!


A Covenant of Love with Mary

The covenant of love with Mary is an original form of living our baptismal covenant. Mary invites and encourages us to join her in the pilgrimage of faith thus imitating her love and life in the same “yes” to Jesus. The Schoenstatt Family calls this daily living with Mary the Covenant of Love. In this Covenant, people from all walks of life and from every age group can strive to live their faith in everyday experiences.

The Covenant of Love expresses and safeguards the covenant with the Blessed Trinity. Symbols of the Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have been given prominent places in the Schoenstatt Shrine. This helps many people to deepen their relationship with God.

The 18th of every month is commemorated especially as 'Covenant Day' by all Schoenstatt members.

Schoenstatt members renew this consecration daily by praying the little consecration prayer:

My Queen, my Mother, I give myself entirely to you

and to show my devotion to you, I consecrate to you this day,

my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, myself without reserve.

As I am your own my good Mother, guard and defend me

as your property and your possession. Amen.
