An Invitation to Priests and Deacons

Dear Father/Deacon:

Priests for Life invites you to sign the following brief statement, which will be sent to the President of the University of Notre Dame.

Fr. Pavone Invited to Notre Dame Commencement by Students Holding Alternate Ceremony

 

Statement of Solidarity

In union with the dozens of bishops who have spoken out on this matter, I too voice serious concern about the decision of the University of Notre Dame to honor President Barack Obama at its May 17 Commencement. In theory, any university in America should be able to welcome with honor the President of the United States. But our current President fails in a key duty of his office to recognize and protect the most basic human right – life itself. He therefore places himself at odds not only with a fundamental aspect of our Catholic identity, but with the most fundamental demands of justice, human rights, and the stated goals of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.

As an ordained member of the Catholic clergy, I recommit myself to teach and preach the full truth about the dignity of the human person at all stages of development, and to make decisions that avoid scandal or the risk of obscuring that truth.
