Letter to the Editor:
Thanks for Fr. Pavone article
Thank you very much for printing the article on Jan. 31 entitled "Pro-life
priest urges treating foes with respect."
The article reported on a gathering in New Orleans of a group of pro-life
advocates at which Fr. Frank Pavone, founder of Priests for Life spoke to the
group urging them to consider that "the best way to advance the cause of life is
to treat opponents with Christian dignity and respect."
Many of us have been waiting for and hoping to hear this Christian point of
view expressed by a respected leader in the right-to-life movement, and we hope
and pray that Fr. Pavone's words will be taken to heart and that
mean-spiritedness and personal attacks will become a thing of the past.
