A Holy Family for Switzerland

The three families of the Delegation of Switzerland in the Schoenstatt Family Institute received the visit of the Generaloberdenfamilie Bernhard and Elisabeth Neiser on 8th June 2007. Together they went to the Shrine and the Swiss Schoenstatt Center in Quarten. The family Neiser had brought a special gift to the families: a statue of the Holy Family made of clay. Produced by a Paraguayan novice family, they came to Schönstatt via Asunción / Paraguay and Buenos Aires / Argentina. It is to show Swiss families that the novices from Paraguay and the families of all courses pray for new vocations in Switzerland. With joy, the families carried the small statue to the Immakulata Land Sanctuary and to the founding room at the Provincial House of the Sisters. The unexpected gift, the glorious spring day in the midst of the wonderful Swiss mountains, the cordial greetings from the provincial, Sr. Renata-Maria Becchio and many of the sisters of the center were able to arouse new confidence: the couple whom God has called to institute in Switzerland are still hidden, but already there. (Family Marlies and Michael Fuchs, Switzerland)
