€1.75 + p&p
In the February issue of SHM VINCENT SHERLOCK writes about praying for our loved ones who are ill, in this month of World Day for the Sick; to mark the anniversary of the death of Blessed John Sullivan SJ, we publish an extract from BISHOP DENIS NULTY’S homily at the Beatification Anniversary Mass in Clongowes Wood College; FR ALAN HILLIARD ponders the ‘generous welcome’ for victims of trafficking, prostitution and violence at the heart of the Pope’s intention for February. In this month’s RE:LINK supplement FAITH QUILLE lists a guide to the many ‘isms’ that are present in a multi-denominational society. February Messenger also includes our ongoing series on women who have influenced Church and state life plus regular articles such as art, cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages and much more.
