video message from Jim Pinto, MEV
Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life:
May the holy and intimate relationship Christ desires for
you be realized.
I want to continue pressing home to
you and to all of our Missionaries the necessity to make daily
prayer and Scripture meditation an intentional part of our
I want to stress intentionality and
tenaciousness in our commitment to Christ in intimate prayer
and the hearing of His voice through Holy Scripture. There are
so many callings and voices, both good, bad and superficial,
that demand our time and energy. We must be intentional and
tenacious in keeping our commitment to the Lord in prayer and
listening to His voice through the Scriptures.

that the Holy Spirit will use my prayer to bless and support
you in your relationship with God, His mission and those with
whom you have a close relationship.

union with the Divine, His children and mission through
intimate prayer cannot be overvalued. Prayer is the heartbeat

Dear Missionaries of the Gospel of
I’m so grateful to Jim Pinto for his continued
leadership in this MEV movement.
I wanted to let you
know that I visited with Mother Angelica on Sunday for about
20 minutes. She is confined to her room at this point, and
basically stays in bed all the time. However, she was smiling,
laughing, and very responsive as I shared with her about the
progress of Priests for Life and Missionaries of the Gospel of
The whole Church owes a lot to her, but in
particular, we at Missionaries of the Gospel of Life owe a lot
to her for letting EWTN be such a platform for this ministry.
In a private conversation I had with Mother in 1994, she told
me I should do a series on abortion, and everything about our
ministry began to really grow rapidly after that.
please pray for Mother Angelica, pray for the continued growth
of EWTN, and please tune in the rest of this week to the EWTN
Masses, at which I will be preaching the homily.
Fr. Frank Pavone
