Dear Missionary of
the Gospel of Life,
I pray this letter finds you firm
in your faith in Christ's unfailing love for you, His Church
and the world.
Lay Missionaries from three states made
promises to "defend my brothers and sisters whose
right to life is under direct attack, and to be, especially
for the unborn, the voice they do not have." Fr.
Frank Pavone, Founder and Director of the Missionaries of the
Gospel of Life, received the professions of eleven lay
Missionaries at the Chapel of the Eternal Word Television
Network, Irondale Alabama, October 29, 2009.
Frank shared that we, the MEV, are "reminders" to the rest of
the Church of what we all are by virtue of our Baptism --
missionaries of the Gospel of Life. He emphasized that we, the
MEV, are not to be looked to as those people who have the
pro-life aspect of ministry "covered", but as those who are
examples to the entire Body of Christ to live out her
missionary and evangelistic reality.
professed missionaries, friends and family gathered at EWTN in
support of the eleven. It was an evening of deep reverence,
outpouring of the Holy Spirit and celebration for the lives of
those called by Christ to be witnesses before the church and
world to the inviolable right to life of every human being
from the moment of conception through natural death.
Please take a few moments to view some of the wonderful and
moving images of the October 29th ceremony,

whole Church that, every Christian is a missionary of the
Gospel of Life and is sent by God to evangelize the world.
