What is Membership Dedication?
Episode 17: What is Membership Dedication in the Schoenstatt Movement? Tune in as author and host Julia Monnin sits down with special guest Susan Bernhold (Diocesan Leader of the Schoenstatt Mother's League in Ohio) as the two take a closer look at this question while welcoming 18 of the Movement's newest Members in the Mother's League. - - - "Members come from the ranks of the associate members who feel that they are called to a stronger leadership role in the League. After an appropriate time of growth into Schoenstatt, they are accepted at the 'membership dedication.' This dedication is a moment of further growth into the covenant of love. Members take on greater commitments in the League and generally form the leadership backbone of the League’s activities (leadership circle, membership circle or the like). Their commitments are: - a permanent apostolate in keeping with their state in life, - permanent striving for sanctity through the use of the educational tools proper to the movement: Personal Ideal, Particular Examination, Spiritual Daily Order with written control, and a monthly report, if possible, to a stable confessor, - committed participation in the community of the League: if possible in a Schoenstatt group, in the activities organized by the diocesan branch of the League to which one belongs, in the leadership or membership circle to the extent this is possible."
