Father Robert J. Fox

Cultivator of vocations to the priesthood, religious life and laity through his Fatima Family Apostolate

   Today we bring you the 59th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Father Robert J. Fox, the 72 year-old founder and director of the Fatima Family Apostolate and author of numerous books and tapes. Farm-bred on the plains of South Dakota, this holy priest chooses to remain close to the soil in Alexandria where his apostolate is headquartered but that doesn't stop him from traveling around the world from Fatima to Moscow for Our Lady's cause in spreading the message of Fatima and how it ties in with the Gospel and the Holy Father's teachings.

59.    Father Robert J. Fox

Got Milk? If we are not nourished slowly, our faith can turn sour and then we will cry over spilt milk!

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa drinks from the Scriptures and the teachings of the Church to convey to all that it is impossible to understand the meat of Church Doctrine if we have not been weaned on the milk of the Word and brought along slowly and surely to the truth of Christ's teachings. Too often, many assume they know the Church and refuse to listen to those who have the God-given authority to impart the truths in doses that all can digest and be nurtured with. As Pat points out, even the Apostles were brought about slowly Jesus gave them small doses of nourishment in the truth so that they could mature in their faith and confidence to teach others. Like little children, they fussed and questioned much, but through the milk-fed process Jesus employed, they became strong in their faith and had the teeth to digest much more. Today, if we have not been weaned on the spiritual milk, we will reject solid doctrine and go for the contaminated mush of heresy. When we do that, we end up souring our entire life and others'.

Milk does the body and soul good!

August 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Also today I call you to give glory to God the Creator in the colors of nature. He speaks to you also through the smallest flower about His beauty and the depth of love with which He has created you. Little children, may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water from a spring. May the wheat fields speak to you about the mercy of God towards every creature. That is why, renew prayer of thanksgiving for everything He gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"Now no one, when he has lighted a lamp, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a couch, but he puts it upon a lamp-stand, that they who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be made manifest; nor anything concealed that will not be known and come to light. Take heed, threefore, how you hear; for to him who has shall be given; and from him who does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away."

Luke 8: 16-18
