February 3, 2022: The Pro-life Movement – Are We Winning? Tulare-Kings Right to Life Talk in Visalia, California

July 31, 2018: God, the Great Divider: At the opening of the 2018 Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show – a national gathering of Catholic apostolates involved in publishing, art, music, and other forms of evangelization – Fr. Frank Pavone spoke about God as “The Great Divider,” who has already won the victory of life and truth and grace and put us on the right side of the divide between good and evil.

July 15, 2017: Fr. Frank's talk at the national Night Vision Festival in Olathe, Colorado, July 15, 2017. Each year, Victoria Hearst, who heads up Praise Him Ministries, holds a music festival called "Night Vision." She always asks Fr. Frank Pavone and other members of the Priests for Life team to be main speakers for this weekend event, because she wants those who come to hear a strong pro-life message. "Night Vision" reflects the fact that we as Christians are able to see clearly in the "night" of this world, discerning, by Christ's Spirit, who our true enemies are, and where the light of God's Word leads us. In this talk, Fr. Frank explains how that "night vision" of Christians enables them to see how much God loves them, and therefore how valuable human life is, amidst a culture that throws it away.
