Grow Boldly – The first part of the motto is the continuation of the mottos from the past two years. We laid the foundation, we burned fearlessly, and now we look to the future as we grow boldly. Grow boldly – what does that mean? “A bold thought, nearly too bold for the public, but not too bold for you” (JK). We want to be rooted in our faith, in our covenant, and in our VSP Queen and become authentic women. Being rooted in her gives us the opportunity for maturation and is an incentive for our self-education. We want to educate ourselves to move past our comfort zones and to proclaim Schoenstatt boldly into our world – through our lives.
Dare to Love – We have a mission. Our Blessed Mother has dared us to love. This is no easy feat. This will be a daily battle, a daily sacrifice, a daily struggle. We must reach for the heights of sanctity by accepting this dare. This dare challenges us to go beyond ourselves in every aspect of our lives. Our homes, our families, our churches, our schools, our workplaces, and all our relationships must be subjected to our apostolic mission of love. We are fulfilling the words of the Founding Document, “Prove to me first that you really love me, that you take your resolution seriously” (JK).
Growing into who God calls us to be in a bold and firm way – this must happen before we go out and before we can dare to love.
