Latest Priests for Life Appeal

 

 

DONATE

 

 

April 2021

Friends,

I’m writing to ask you to make a special donation to Priests for Life right now.

I’m hoping you will do this because Priests for Life is down $200,000 from where we should be, where we need to be financially, and where we were at this time last year.

The only two reasons I can think of for this downturn is the ongoing COVID situation.  The virus is having a terrible impact on people’s lives, what with so many businesses closing and jobs lost.  I continue to pray for you and all our supporters.  

The other reason for the drop in donations is the power grab by the enemies of life.  Their anti-life fanaticism has caused some people to become discouraged and give up the fight.  

The Abortion Triumvirate of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have already succeeded in removing all pro-life protections from the so-called “coronavirus relief” bill Congress passed.  Their next goal is to get Congress to repeal the Hyde Amendment which is the policy that protects many of your tax dollars from paying for abortions.

And they are working to “codify” Roe v Wade and abortion-on-demand into federal law thus making it impossible for any state to pass any laws that protect mothers and babies from abortionists like convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell.

The situation is dark indeed.  But you must remember:

No matter how strong the enemy is, God is stronger.

You know this.  After all, we went through this same nightmare during the eight years of the Obama regime.  You’ll recall how it seemed hopeless to fight against that abortion juggernaut.  

But you didn’t quit then.  Standing side by side we fought tooth and nail.  And after eight years of non-stop attack and extreme oppression God blessed us, the babies and the nation with Donald Trump, the most pro-life President in history.

Well, as we fought then so we must fight now.  

This is why God chose to put us here at this precise moment in time.  This fight is not for the faint of heart.  He knew it would take people of great courage to fight for His children.  And He chose you to wage that battle.

Which is why I’ve sent you this urgent letter today.

I need you to make a sacrifice for the babies and do all you can to make up for the drop in financial support Priests for Life has suffered.

I’m asking you to do this because, when it comes to defending the youngest members of our human family, Priests for Life will never back down, never give up, and never surrender.

But to fulfill that pledge I must have your ongoing financial support.

Your dollars – along with those other pro-life heroes like you send us – allow Priests for Life to ...

... preach the Gospel of Life; 

... oppose the diabolical policies of the Democrats;

... encourage, uplift and inspire the pro-life movement to stay strong;

... expose the true horror of abortion to people;

... stand in the gap and protect our unborn brothers and sisters;

... provide pro-life warriors with the leadership and materials they need to wage war against the culture of death in their local communities;

... offer prayers, including daily Mass and the Rosary.

It’s your dollars that make all that work possible.

Thanks to you and your fellow Priests for Life family members we reach:

  • Tens of millions of people with our pro-life messaging. 
  • A million a day on social media platforms. 
  • Almost a quarter of a million a day on our Amazon and ROKU TV channels. 
  • Tens of millions through our two series on EWTN. 

It’s that outreach that makes Priests for Life the face and voice of the pro-life movement. 

But all of that work is in jeopardy if we cannot recoup the $200,000 drop in donations that’s hit us so far this year.

And remember:

Priests for Life receives no funds from any official Church entity ... neither from Rome nor here in the United States. 

And that in spite of the fact that many at the Vatican – including Pope Francis himself ... who was a member of the Pontifical Council for the Family of which I was also an official – have personally encouraged my work.  In addition to that, numerous bishops around the world and here in the U.S. wholeheartedly and publicly endorse our Priests for Life ministry. 

In fact, a short time ago Bishop Joe Coffey of the military archdiocese sent me a note and asked me to share it with you and the rest of the Priests for Life family.  Bishop Coffey wrote:

Dear Priests for Life Family,

My name is Bishop Joe Coffey.  I have had the great privilege of personally knowing several members of the Priests for Life network for over 30 years especially Fr Frank Pavone, Fr Denis Wilde, OSA and Kevin and Theresa Burke.  As a seminarian, I heard Fr Pavone and Fr Wilde give inspiring Pro Life homilies and as a priest, I have happily made use of the readily made available pro life homily helps for Priests and Deacons to give inspiring homilies.  I am always trying to encourage seminarians and priests to get more involved with what the majority of the Bishops of the USCCB called the “pre-eminent issue” of our time.  

Allow me to thank you for being a member of the Priests for Life family, whether that means taking part in its prayer campaigns, implementing its action alerts, connecting with its pro-life broadcasts and messages on social media, donating financially to the ministry, or all of these things!

Priests for Life seeks to save lives from abortion and to heal the wounds of abortion.  In doing so, it is advancing a key priority of our day – a priority for both the Church and the state – and therefore deserves the support of as many people as possible.

God bless you!  Sincerely,

Bishop Joe Coffey

Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA

I wanted you to read Bishop Coffey’s words in order to show you how he – along with so many other bishops – value the great work which Priests for Life does in the fight against abortion and recognize your vital role in our work. 

Every penny we receive comes from hard-working, dedicated pro-life champions like you.  Which means:

Priests for Life can only do as much to assist you in your pro-life work and protect the youngest members of our human family as you are willing to sacrifice and give of yourself to support our shared mission.

And so I ask you to do all you can to help make sure Priests is able to lead the pro-life movement at a time when the forces of darkness seem invincible.  We are the last line of defense protecting the babies.  God calls us to stand in the gap no matter how ferociously or how relentlessly or how viciously the enemy attacks.

As I’ve told you ever since you joined the Priests for Life family, we will prevail in our cause.  After all, we are not fighting for victory.  Rather, we are fighting from victory; the victory over sin and death that Our Lord won on Calvary.

Our job is to hold our ground and continue to fight until God delivers our enemies into our hands.

And for that to happen Priests for Life needs an immediate infusion of funds; which includes that tax-deductible donation that I’m asking you to make to Priests for Life right now. 

As I told you at the beginning of this note, donations are down some $200,000 from where they were at this time last year. 

Knowing you as I do, I’m confident you will do whatever you must to make sure Priests for Life is here to protect the babies and advance the cause of life.  You always have and I know you always will.

Thank you for your dedication and resolve.  You are a great comfort to me; someone I know I can turn to. I pray for you daily, including at Mass. 

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director

Priests for Life

P.S.  Friend, in order to withstand the slings and arrows of the forces of darkness you and I need God’s spiritual aid.  Knowing this Priests for Life provides you with daily Mass, recitation of the Rosary, and other prayers.  If you’re not already doing so I encourage you to join me for Mass each morning at 10:00 EST on our EndAbortion.TV internet channel.  As long as we put our trust in God, He will deliver us from the hands of our foes and give us victory over abortion.
