Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life:
I pray this letter finds you embracing
Christ’s unfailing and generous love! Allow me to give you a
few reminders, and then you will see a message from Fr. Frank.
I want you to know that I am praying for you. In times
like these, it is critical that we work our spirituality and
stay centered and assured of God’s never failing love. I know
that it is a struggle at times to maintain our disciplines,
but the fruit of them -- greater intimacy with Jesus and
empowerment to live and declare the Gospel of Life -- is more
than worth the effort. I am praying for you and know that God
is able to do infinitely more than we can imagine.
Regarding the "working" of our disciplines and spirituality, I
know that Father is asking us to use and promote his excellent
teaching on Pro-life Spirituality and Activism. Frank Pavone
has trained pro-life leaders across the Country. Now you can
benefit from his seminars while in the comfort of your own
home! This 9 CD set will renew and perfect your pro-life work
like never before. Topics include: Spirituality of Pro-Life
Work, Public Education, and Prayer and Repentance.

National Coordinator of the Missionaries of the
Gospel of Life
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thanks for your commitment to live as a Missionary of the
Gospel of Life.
More bishops are getting directly
involved in our Association; I just received word from another
bishop that he will be receiving the promises of some of the
Missionaries who are in training. We will announce that
shortly. It is always encouraging to have the active
leadership of our shepherds!
Please take note of the
various action items that I am placing in the bi-weekly email
blast of my column. Action related to the health care debate
as well as special upcoming national pro-life projects – not
to mention our own Freedom Rides – are all crucial ways that
we can advance the cause.
And if you want even more
immediate updates from me on breaking news and activities I am
undertaking, be sure to follow me on Twitter at
You are in my daily
prayers and Masses!
