Fr. Pavone Mourns Passing of Robert Schindler, Sr.
Date: August 29, 2009
Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life,
today issued the following statement on the passing of Robert Schindler,
Sr., father of Terri Schiavo.
“Bob Schindler remains an inspiration. In spite of enduring the
heartbreaking, court ordered killing of his daughter, Terry Schiavo, Bob
never stopped fighting for the rights of others who were disabled or
medically vulnerable. His quiet strength in the face of persecution and his
compassion for those who were too weak to defend themselves will forever
serve as examples of how we should show Christ’s love.”
