Immaculate Heart Messenger Magazine April 2008 issueThe spring issue of the IMMACULATE HEART MESSENGER will have heart touching articles and pictures to captivate your attention. One testimony in this issue will be of a woman, at first reluctant to become a mother. Then she became a loving mother of three children and doubtlessly would have had six or seven if her husband had not gone mental and murdered all her children and set the house afire which took his life as well. With this overwhelming experience this woman, who is an artist and traveled the world, was finally led to God, became a third order Franciscan and made a stain glass window for the Church where she participates in the holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The stain glass is of Jesus with children, the children are images of her own whose lives were taken.

LOST FATHERHOOD is a down to earth testimony of a father of ten children who did not experience authentic fatherhood in any man as he was growing up. With much pain he discovered what it takes to be a real father to children and the spiritual head of the family.

AM I DOING GOD’S WILL AS A PARENT? is another article by a father of a family as he gives practical points and examples from his own experience on being a good parent in union with his good wife.

There is an extensive article on St. Francis of Assisi – such as you may never have seen St. Francis before. Did you know he gave his life in suffering for the conversion of Muslims????

The cover of the spring IMMACULATE HEART MESSENGER will be a magnificent colorful image of the CHILD JESUS, about the age of six, from a statue of the Divine Nino here at the Shrine of the MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT built by Mother Angelica and where the editor, Father Robert J. Fox, offers daily Mass. It was the CHILD JESUS who asked Mother Angelica to build this beautiful temple in His honor here at Hanceville, Alabama. The Sisters have an article explaining the striking image.

The above are a few hints of what you will find in the spring issue of the IMMACULATE HEART MESSENGER if you order it soon.
