The Gospel of Life

A message for our times


Priests for Life continues to rejoice in the gift which Pope John Paul II has given to the Church in the encyclical letter, Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life). This document is the most comprehensive and authoritative statement of the Magisterium on the tragedies of abortion and euthanasia, and on the good news of the dignity of the human person.

Priests for Life was one of the very first associations in the Church to provide a commentary on this encyclical. It consists of two 45-minute talks given by Fr. Frank Pavone, and is available from the Priests for Life office on one audio tape entitled We are the People of Life. You may listen to this tape right here on the Internet by clicking here.

We are happy to provide here on our web site the entire text of this document, as well as a brief written summary.
