Greetings in the Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Listen to the encouraging and compassionate words of Jesus: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

Having come through so draining an election season and so active a time of Pro-life witness, we need to remember that peace and strength are found through intimate union with Jesus. Standing against the culture of death and principalities and powers (both human and spiritual) is no easy task and the battle will only continue. We refuse to take the yoke of the world, or one of our own making. Through our Missionary/Pro-Life Spirituality, let us respond to Christ’s offer and take His easy yoke upon our necks and learn from Him. In the midst of the culture of death and powers that rage against us, let us receive the rest and light burden that come from intimate union with Jesus.

I ask you to join with me in prayerfully reviewing and applying our Missionary/Pro-life Spirituality, www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/spirituality.htm. This spirituality was developed specifically to help strengthen you in your life saving efforts. The practice of this spirituality is what makes the Missionaries a unique association in the Pro-life movement. May you find the ongoing practice of our missionary spirituality a wonderful source of refreshment and empowerment!

United with you in the tender and holy yoke of Jesus Christ,
