Instrument Spirituality

We can make a difference

Every person has the desire to be needed by another, to be able to make a difference in our world. In the Covenant of Love, Schoenstatt members express their willingness to be instruments of God. A key concept of Christ’s teaching in the New Testament is that God is a loving Father. This understanding of God the Father is fundamental to Schoenstatt’s spirituality and personal formation.

God loves each one of us personally and has a unique mission for each person. There is a loving reason behind every circumstance of our lives. This gives our lives the dignity of meaning and purpose. Fr Kentenich loved to say “God is Father, God is good, everything he does is good”. He mastered the tremendous difficulties of his life by living as a beloved child of the Father.

In his providence God has included our cooperation and our free decision in his plan of love. He wants to engage in dialogue with us and he challenges us to interpret his inspirations and directions. We can become attentive to God's plan for us by examining our talents, our ability to love, and the circumstances in our lives that evoke powerful responses from us.

Mary was an expert in discovering and carrying our Gods plan of love and united with her we too can become masters of following the path of God and being useful instruments in his hands.
