Much to Like About This Magazine
From Jack Swart, Oudtshoorn – I am writing to congratulate you on your wonderful magazine. I am a proud reader. It was sad not to have received The Southern Cross newspaper during lockdown; it was as if something was missing. And it was even more sad losing our weekly newspaper permanently — but by God’s grace, mercy and divine providence, The Southern Cross is still alive.
You did a magnificent job. Praise the Lord. It is a treat to read our magazine; my compliments to you all.
I love the history pieces and the Q&A section. The “Saint of the Month” articles and pictures are amazing. My bedroom wall is now adorned with the posters of these monthly saints. It’s so nice to learn and know more about our wonderful history, Church and saints.
All the prayers in the “Prayer Corner” are so useful and valuable. As someone who enjoys cooking, I love Grazia Barletta’s “Cooking with Saints” column, and the various puzzles are also very nice.
I am looking forward to another 100 years of The Southern Cross magazine. I can’t wait to see how you build more and more on this truly amazing legacy with new ideas.
May God be with you, protect you and guide you, granting you strength, wisdom, hope, health, peace and guidance.
