Father Robert J. Fox, Director, Fatima Family Apostolate
We are delighted to add Father Robert J. Fox as a contributing columnist for the DailyCATHOLIC. Fr. Fox is the founding director of the Fatima Family Apostolate and editor of the Immaculate Heart Messenger, a quarterly publication promoting the purpose of Fatima for and through families everywhere. He was born on Christmas Eve in 1927 in Watertown, South Dakota, the youngest of eight children of Aloysius and Suzie Emma Fox. Throughout his nurturing years he received lots of love and this fostered in him the seeds of a vocation, thanks to his devotion and obedience to his earthly mother, who instilled in him a deep love for Our Lord and His Blessed Mother Mary. Except for his seminary years in Minnesota, he has spent his entire life in South Dakota at various parishes and missions, always instilling in his parishioners that deep love for Jesus and Mary and Holy Mother Church that he first received. He was ordained on April 24, 1955 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In the late eighties through a fulfillment of a promise, he established the Fatima Family Apostolate. A man of deep spirituality, Fr. Fox has written numerous books and is a much sought after speaker throughout the world with many tapes available, including a 13-video presentation of 26 half-hour lessons giving an entire course on the Catholic Faith. Through cooperation between Fr. Fox and the DailyCATHOLIC we will begin in June publishing his magazine Immaculate Heart Messenger on the net in Russian. For English, the full color magazine is available by calling 800-213-5541 for $21. a year. Also in June he will host the 14th National Marian Congress in Alexandria, South Dakota with such noted speakers as Bishop Robert Carlson, Jeff Cavins, Fr. Harold Cohen, S.J., Karl Keating and Mother Assumpta Long among the keynote speakers. For more information on this, call the same toll-free number: 800-721-MARY or 800-213-5541.
