Latest Priests for Life Appeal




November 2017


On Thursday, November 23rd I will offer a special Mass of THANKSGIVING to God for the many blessings He has showered upon our fight to end abortion thus far in 2017. 

In recognition of all that you have done and continue to do to advance the cause of life in America and bring us closer to total victory over abortion, I want to include your THANKS to God at that Mass.

Just click here and type in the intentions you want me to remember. I will include them with all the others I receive and have them with me at the altar during my special Thanksgiving Day Mass.

At this time last year when I invited you to send me your Thanksgiving Day intentions, the results from the 2016 presidential election were not yet known. Well, we know them now!  And I can tell you without a moment’s hesitation that I could not be happier with the result.  No president has accomplished more for the Culture of Life at the beginning of his term than has President Trump.

Which is why Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry, Democrats in the Party of Death and radical anarchists on the Left attack him at every opportunity … and why it is so important for you and the Priests for Life family to help President Trump carry out his pro-life agenda and fulfill the many promises he made to us during the campaign.

Personally, I am confident the President will do that. When speaking at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. last month, the President said:

“We cherish the sacred dignity of every human life. 
We are all made by the same God in heaven.”

The President is absolutely right. But unlike many in politics who mouth pro-life platitudes, this President means it and has backed it up with action. From reinstating and expanding the Mexico City Policy (that saves tax dollars from going to international abortion agencies) … to giving states the authority to defund Planned Parenthood … to ending the Obama administration’s diabolical HHS mandate that forced people to take a direct part in abortion … to proclaiming an end to the government’s attack on religious liberty.

President Trump is a real friend to you and all pro-life Americans. And for that, and his election victory last year, I am very thankful to God.

But that’s not all that I will be giving thanks to God for this Thanksgiving Day.

In a very special way I will thank him for YOU!

You and your fellow Priests for Life family members – along with everyone actively involved in the fight to end our nation’s abortion holocaust – are signs of hope. 

God has raised up the Priests for Life family to be the face and voice of America’s pro-life movement. To lead God’s people to victory over abortion. To speak out for the voiceless when those in power want to silence the child in the womb and keep him from crying out for help.

You are fulfilling your pro-life vocation wonderfully. 

You have remained vigilant and unwavering in your commitment to defend the defenseless.  You have given of yourself time and time again to oppose the world’s relentless persecution of the unborn. You have been steadfast in your active partnership with Priests for Life as we continue to crisscross the nation preaching the Gospel of Life. 

And your labors are bearing fruit. All the data shows this. 

So today I urge you to make a contribution to Priests for Life when you send me those intentions you want me to remember this Thanksgiving Day. Your dollars will allow us to continue to lead our nation to freedom from and victory over abortion. We cannot succeed without you. It doesn’t matter how convincing our preaching or how effective our message. If we can’t get that message out, no one hears it.

It is your dollars that make all our work possible. And your prayers that make all our work effective. So please be as generous with both as you can. 

And if you make a donation to Priests for Life for $35 or more I will send you a copy of Anthony DeStefano’s book: The Puppy That No One Wanted.

As I’m sure you know by now, Anthony – my close friend and longtime collaborator in the pro-life movement (as well as our full-time Vice-Chairman here at Priests for Life) – is a highly accomplished author. In The Puppy That No One Wanted, Anthony uses biblical imagery to tell the story of a little dog who has been cast aside and wants to find a home. The deeply Christian meaning of the book is that all of us are really outcasts in life and all of us can find our true home and our true happiness in God. This is an uplifting message that both children and adults will benefit from hearing.

I think The Puppy That No One Wanted may well be Anthony’s best children’s book to date because, while the story is filled with events and parables from the Bible, all of Anthony’s Christian messaging is “between the lines”, so to speak; which means you’ll be able to use The Puppy That No One Wanted as an excellent teaching tool for the young people in your life.

And you can have it just for supporting our shared pro-life mission with a contribution of $35 or more to Priests for Life.

To get your copy of The Puppy That No One Wanted, just check the box on your Thanksgiving Day Mass Reply to let me know you want it.

I’ll close this short letter with that offer. I do ask that you please continue to pray for me, the other priests and our entire Priests for Life staff; as we pray for you. Thank you again and may God bless you.

Sincerely yours in the peace and love of Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director, Priests for Life

P.S. In order to make sure I have your offerings of thanks in time for my Thanksgiving Day Mass, I must receive your reply by Tuesday, November 21.  Thank you again and may God bless you.
