Go to http://www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/video/index.aspx?flv=260 for a video message from Jim Pinto, Jr.

Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life,

May this letter find you confident in Christ’s Victory over the culture of death.

For those of you who participated in our March 18 International MEV Teleconference, you know the special time of community that it was. For those of you who were not able to participate, you were missed.

Whether you participated or not, you can benefit by listening to Fr. Frank and other participants on the Life Cell Conference REPLAY, http://AttendThisEvent.com/?eventid=11478945. The MEV Teleconferences and Fr. Pavone’s Vote Life Conferences, next Conference March 24, http://www.priestsforlife.org/conferencecall/index.aspx are important in deepening our formation and participation in building a new Culture of Life!

A good part of the Life Cell Conference, as well as my brief video with this email, focus on what makes the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life unique -- our Pro-life Spirituality. Two “must have” resources for every Missionary are Fr. Frank’s new book, Pro-life Reflections for Every Day and the updated version of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life Associates of Priests for Life Manual. Please order these two key items and review the other MEV resources at, www.priestsforlife.org/store/c-47-missionaries-of-the-gospel-of-life.aspx.

I also want to share with you another update. Yesterday, a prayer service was held by several hundred members of Congress, their spouses, and their staff. It took place inside the US Capitol building, and Fr. Frank as asked to deliver a homily! You can read the text of this powerful homily at http://www.priestsforlife.org/preaching/10-03-21-pavone-congress.htm, and Fr. Frank asks you to spread it to others as we continue to work to take our country back to government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

For those who are working towards profession www.priestsforlife.org/missionary/laypromises.htm, you may want to take advantage of the opportunities listed below to make promises before Fr. Frank. We are also desirous to work with you on scheduling a profession ceremony in your area.
