Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life:

Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed, Alleluia! Christ's resurrection is the source of our faith and the confidence in which we run with missionary zeal for the Gospel of Life. Let's begin this special Easter Season of life filled with great hope and looking forward to an even greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Please read Father Frank's good word to us regarding this victorious season; sign up to unite in An Easter Prayer for Life www.priestsforlife.org/novenas/easter.aspx and review the national opportunities to join with Father and the Missionaries, for Promise Ceremonies and fellowship - www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/09-03-30eletter.htm.

Happy Easter! We are in the season of the Resurrection, a special period of 50 Days from the Easter Vigil to Pentecost Sunday, in which the Church proclaims with particular emphasis and joy that death has been conquered and that by our baptism we have a share in the Risen Life of Christ!

This is the season of life. We therefore invite all believers to pray the “Easter Prayer for Life” each day, to counteract the most widespread and violent attack on human life in our day, which is abortion. Please let us know that you are joining in this prayer campaign by registering at www.priestsforlife.org/novenas/easter.aspx.

God bless you!
Fr. Frank Pavone

An Easter Prayer for Life

Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the Author of Life,
Who died and now lives forevermore.
May we who work and pray
That children in the womb may be protected
Always draw strength, confidence, and joy
From Your victory over death,
For you are Lord forever and ever. Amen.

What a privilege it is to be united with you as Missionary of the Gospel of Life this Easter-Resurrection Season!

On behalf of Fr. Frank and the Priests for Life/MEV staff, have a blessed Holy Week and Easter and let us know how we may serve you.
