Fr. Pavone to LCWR: Priests for Life will work “side by side” with women religious to proclaim a pro-life message

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Father Frank issued the following comment today on the Vatican’s assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR):

“As a pro-life ministry dedicated to fully activating the Church to end abortion and euthanasia, Priests for Life is grateful to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for the assessment it has issued of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, and in particular for pointing out the problem of silence regarding abortion and the right to life.”

Following a two-year investigation into the LCWR, the Vatican concluded, in part, that, “while there has been a great deal of work on the part of LCWR promoting issues of social justice in harmony with the church’s social doctrine, it is silent on the right to life from conception to natural death.”

Responding to that finding, Father Pavone said, “Priests for Life has the highest regard for the women religious in the Church and the consecration they have made to God of their lives.  We want to work side by side with them and support them in the pro-life dimensions of their life and ministry.  We therefore encourage the LCWR and all its members to make the right to life a clear and constant aspect of the message they proclaim to the world.”

Father Frank concluded: “As we have often pointed out, the very act of consecrating one’s life to God strikes at the heart of the culture of death.  While the culture of death proclaims, ‘I have the right to choose,’ the religious life proclaims, ‘My life and choices belong to God, and there is where I find true freedom.’ ”

    These replicas are definitely good quality bags that may provide years of quality and fashion just as the original, but at a much lower price.

    Thank you, Father Frank. I pray for unity, this is an enormous step. I have noticed through the years that evil is losing its grasp within the church. I see that Pro-Life is becoming much brighter. Pro-Life is essential. I may not see it complete in my lifetime, but the more the hierarchy speaks out and proclaims Life, the better we become prayer warriors and advocates for them.

    I find it incredibly offensive that those who embrace materialism and popular culture have posted comments about “handbags” on Fr. Pavone’s response site. I feel very sorry for you all… Do you not have one ounce of self respect left inside your incredibly shallow and pathetic souls? Your comments reinforce the perfect examples of the human condition in popular culture today, a self absorbed generation that can identify only with being their own Gods, and do you ever think of anything being more important in life than a stupid, overpriced handbag? Are you aware that over 58,000,000 people have been systematically executed by abortion on demand in this country alone? More than one entire generation is missing! If you think that buying handbags is really newsworthy, post your comments on another thread. You people have no class, and all the handbags in the world wouldn’t change that! PS. I wouldn’t but one of those bags now if they only cost one buck….what a bunch of incredibly shallow, self absorbed and obtrusive human beings…God forgive me and good luck getting Him to help you…
