Thank you to pro-life speaker
To the editor:
A special thanks to the Rev. Frank Pavone, International Director, Priests
For Life from Staten Island, New York for his recent visit to Valley
Catholic Churches during this special Jubilee Year 2000 "Respect Life
Pilgrimage," Sept. 30 to Oct. 10, 2000.
We consider ourselves extremely blessed for not only the privilege of having
Fr. Pavone as a priest, teacher and mentor but we thank God for bringing him
into our lives as our friend through the Eternal Word Television Network.
Fr. Pavone's accomplishments are too numerous to mention, but as Jesus Christ
said to his disciples, "You will teach by example" so are the philosophies of
His compassion, humility and dedication as a priest and human being are
Finally, Fr. Pavone's dedication for "The Gift of Life" can be best described
as "Christ in action." We thank God and ask Him to hold Fr. Pavone near and dear
in His heart as all pro-life advocates do.
