No Ordinary Funeral

 

Priests for Life


5/1/2008

       
   
 

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, called upon all of the nation’s Catholic priests today to offer a Mass within the next few days for the “Hodari babies,” a group of aborted children who were discovered over the last two months in the trash dumpster at Woman Care abortion clinic on Southfield Road in Lathrup Villlage, Michigan. Through the efforts of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, there will be a funeral Mass celebrated this Saturday, May 3, by Bishop John Quinn of Detroit, and the babies will then be buried. 

“This is not the first time that my friend Monica Miller has organized such a work of mercy for discarded children like this,” Fr. Pavone stated. “Her work spans the last couple of decades, and it has been my honor to participate with her in similar funeral services in the past.” 

“This Saturday’s service is no ordinary funeral. There are still too many of our fellow citizens who don’t even acknowledge that the people who will be buried this Saturday are people at all. To mourn their deaths publicly, therefore, is not just to honor them, but to sound a wake-up call to our nation that we are living amidst the biggest holocaust of all time. That is why I call upon my brother priests nationwide to bring to the attention of their congregations this weekend that children are being buried who were brutally, legally killed, and that the killing has to end,” Fr. Pavone concluded.

Priests for Life has posted photos of some of the babies who will be buried. See www.priestsforlife.org/images. For more info, see http://www.prolifesociety.org/
