Regarding Father Joseph Kentenich. Father Joseph Kentenich (b. 16 November, 1885, Gymnich, Rhine Province, Germany, d. 15 September 1968 in Schoenstatt, Vallendar, Germany) was a Pallottine Catholic priest and founder of the Schoenstatt Movement. He is remembered as a theologian, educator and pioneer of a Catholic response to an array of modern issues, whose teachings underwent a series of challenges from political and ecclesiastical powers. He attempted to teach Christians how to live out their faith. He started his Schoenstatt movement during World War I, working with students and soldiers during the entire war. During World War II he, along with many priests, was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to the Dachau concentration camp, where he was imprisoned for a little over three years.
The Schoenstatt Catholic movement focuses on involving lay people in the church and in uniting the various factions of the church.
