Schoenstatt means "beautiful place." The Schoenstatt movement is a Marian movement that originated in Bavaria, Germany, and has since spread all over the world. The movement emphasizes a strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, upholding her as a perfect example of love and purity. It also calls its members to make a Covenant of Love with God the Father, giving their entire lives to Him. Mary is the primary example of such humility.
The title Mother Thrice Admirable, or "Mater ter Admirabilis" in Latin, is found in the Litany of Loreto and is widely used to refer to the Blessed Virgin Mary within the movement. The meaning of the title is multi-valent: Mother of God, Mother of Christ, Mother of all human beings; she is admirable in faith, hope and charity; she was virgin before, in and after the birth of Christ; Child of the Father, Mother of the Son, Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
