Dear Lay Missionary of the Gospel of Life:
First, let me share with you a special announcement from our Moderator General, Fr Frank Pavone, MEV.
Two You Tube videos I made recently have been causing a stir. Would you help me get them in front of as many people as possible?
In these videos, I demonstrate the two most common abortion procedures, using fetal models and also using instruments that were actually used to kill babies.
The links to the videos are as follows:
This is the first step in a major project to challenge politicians, and you can take part in it. Please read the details of this project at www.priestsforlife.org/action/abortion-procedure-revealed.htm
...his disciples asked him in private, "Why could we not drive it out?" He said to them, "this kind can only come out through prayer and fasting." (Mark 9:28b-29).
You, perhaps more than most, are aware of the need to fast, pray and work to drive out the powers of the culture of death. The Lord is renewing his Church and raising up movements and ministries to establish a new culture of life in our nation and the world. Missionaries of the Gospel of Life and Cenacles of Life are among those gracious and renewing works of the Holy Spirit.
Father Pavone has given his whole hearted support to the Cenacles of Life and wants to encourage every Lay Missionary to consider participating in a Cenacle. Perhaps some of you may be interested in establishing a Cenacle in your parish/diocese. If you have not done so already, please see the excellent information that can assist you in your prayerful decision-making process: www.CenaclesofLife.org. Fr. Frank has written a wonderful letter of support for the Cenacles on behalf of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life: www.cenaclesoflife.org/mev.pdf.
Let's continue to unite around our daily Associate Prayers, First Friday Pro-life Examination of Conscience at www.priestsforlife.org/brochures/examine.html, and Praying the Rosary and Fasting for Life at www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/april07letter.htm.
May we be obedient to -- and relish our times of grace-filled and intimate prayer with -- the most blessed Holy Trinity.
Please share your thoughts with me and other Associates through email and our MEV-Community Site: www.pfl-mev.org.
prayers, fasting and work for life unite us,
