America has lost a strong and consistent voice for the most helpless in society,” said Fr. Pavone.  “The unborn and the physically impaired had a great advocate in Rev. D. James Kennedy, who always pleaded for the vulnerable with love.  I appreciate the collaboration that Priests for Life has had with his ministry and look forward to a continued strong relationship with those who will carry that ministry forward.”
