Fr. Pavone Announces Completion of Liturgical Guide for Pro-life Preaching


Priests for Life



Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today the culmination of a three-year project to assist priests to preach on abortion and the Culture of Life.

“For the past three years, I have written homily hints on how to take the readings assigned to each Sunday and preach on abortion,” Fr. Pavone said. “The lectionary has a three-year Sunday cycle, and today we completed the reflections for each Sunday of each of the three years. Now, these homily hints can be used as each cycle continues to repeat through the years.”

Fr. Pavone has preached on abortion throughout the 50 states each day since September of 1993. A careful analysis of the responses of the people, integrated with a careful study of the pastoral plan of the United States bishops, has produced an approach that preachers can rely on with confidence.

The reflections are available online at Priests, deacons, and parish ministers can also receive a weekly email with the homily hints for upcoming Sundays, as well as a set of General Intercessions for Mass and a paragraph on pro-life issues for the parish bulletin. The email can be requested at
