Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life,

I pray this Lenten Season finds your "connectedness" to Jesus and His Church growing in intimacy and strength!

Whatever your state of Formation with the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, it is the desire of the MEV national staff to strengthen our "connectedness" with you and every Missionary. You will continue to hear from committed staff like Sue Turner, Anne Ameno and John Fagundes as well as myself. It is our hearts' desire to assist each Missionary in our Disciplines of Prayer, Study, Community and Apostolic Witness -- www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/spiritual-disciplines.htm that lead to the making of Promises and the living out of those Promises in a daily missionary lifestyle.

Please be sure to watch the video attached to this message as it emphasizes the necessity of "connectedness" in the MEV and presents one of the most outstanding promoters of it, our dear brother MEV, Ray Mooney. As Ray has concluded his time as a member of the Priests for Life/MEV staff, he will continue to make outstanding contributions both in his local community and throughout the MEV community! We all thank God for Ray, and for his dedication to life and this precious Association.

Please review and enjoy the new addition to our MEV website, a photo gallery under Recent Updates, www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/index.htm. Note in particular the pictures and story of the ten MEV who made Promises in the EWTN chapel with Father Frank on March 2, 2009 www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/photogallery/trip-home.aspx?tripid=164. Perhaps we should gather for a time of "connectedness" in Greater Birmingham, AL, and experience together the joy of fellowship at EWTN and Our Lady of the Angels Monastery, Hanceville, Alabama?

Please review the links at the bottom of the page and let's deepen our "connectedness" with Jesus, His Church, and in particular the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life!

I am united with you in daily prayer and witness to the Victorious Gospel of Life.
