Immaculate Heart Messenger
(IHM) is the vehicle of communications for the Fatima FamilyApostolate International (FFAI) which was founded approaching 25 years ago. This Apostolate wasfounded at the suggestion of the Pontifical Council for the Laity. Its magazine is published both in theUnited States and in the Philippines. It is popular in Australia.The IHM exists to share the "Good News" for the education and formation of family members. "GoodNews" here refers to the teachings of the Gospel and traditional teachings of the Church. Somepublications considering themselves "Catholic" seem to glory in the negative. We see our mission asbeing positive to educate and form in the authentic Catholic faith.The Holy Family appeared at Fatima during the Miracle of the Sun.

When CardinalEdouard Gagnon, prefect of the Pontifical Council for the Family, came from the Vatican he said, "Mypresence says more than my words that I approve of the Fatima Family Apostolate." He also said, "Fatimaand Family go together." He also wrote approval of "Mary's White League" which is most popular withyounger children."EVANGELIZATION" sums up in one word why this Apostolate exists and what its work is. It means azealous proclamation of the Gospel in order to bring others to Christ and his church. Pope Paul VI said:"Evangelizing means to bring the Good News into all the strata of humanity, and through its influencetransforming humanity from within and making it new, 'Now I am making the whole of creation new'"(Rev. 21:5). Father John A. Hardon, S.J., for many years theological advisor to FFAI, wrote:"Evangelization includes three distinctive elements: 1.) Interior conversion to Christ and his Church;
