Schoenstatt means "beautiful place." The Schoenstatt movement originated in Bavaria, Germany, and has since spread all over the world. It calls its members to make a Covenant of Love with God the Father, giving their entire lives to Him, and emphasizes strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a primary means to this goal.
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. Prisoners surviving the concentration camps of WWII have credited our Lady under this title for saving them from death.
Please note: triptych cards feature cover-to-cover artwork and are designed to be truly breathtaking. Practicality takes a backseat to beauty with here, and cover-to-cover artwork means sparse space in which to write personal messages
We recommend including a hand-written or printed message on a separate piece of paper with each card—we’ll supply the envelopes to help you keep it nice and tidy. If you would still like to sign the card itself, we recommend using a gold or silver-ink pen.
