FINALLY, here are my favorite pictures from my lovely trip to Germany! I will give a bit of detail to each picture, so that you are not confused! Enjoy xx
Our first view of the original shrine... very exciting!
Our USA group, walking towards the shrine
Father Kentenich's tomb. What a powerful experience to be in the presence of the founder of the Schoenstatt movement.
This is the arena outdoors, where all the big celebrations and presentations took place. It held us all... about 12,000 or more pilgrims here!
Torch runners from Italy. They brought a torch, lit by Pope Francis, all the way to Germany in 9 days. To welcome to Blessed mother, very symbolically.
Sideways picture XP Of the whole arena, everyone had lit candles.
This picture, I took at Midnight. The first few moments of the next century of Schoenstatt!!
A view of the surrounding city.
The Rhine river!
A very special shrine:)
Town square of a medieval village!
The buildings all looked like this!

The altar of the church. It felt so neat to be somewhere so old.

Town square of Munich. One of my favorite places for sure!
IT WAS MAGNIFICENT!
