What’s in the name VICTRESS?
VICTRESS comes from the Blessed Mother’s title as Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt. Schoenstatt is a Marian devotion founded by Father Joseph Kentenich in Germany in 1914. Schoenstatt is now an international lay Catholic movement with even Pope Francis displaying her signature image on his nightstand. The title VICTRESS honors Mary’s victory over sin and the influence of the evil one by submitting completely to God’s Divine Providence. Mary as VICTRESS inspires us to rely on the Lord in our daily pursuits in order to conquer this world and live out the greatness to which God has called us.
