“In our present times there is an urgent need to promote a culture of life and also to undertake direct actions that help protect the life of the weakest, especially the unborn. For that reason the work done by ‘Priests for Life’ deserves the gratitude and support of the whole Church.”

- Cardinal Stanislaw Rylko, President, Pontifical Council for the Laity, Vatican City State, June 7, 2011.

   
Dear Friends,

Priests for Life is on the front lines of the effort to end abortion, and to energize the Church at all levels in this task. Our financial support comes entirely from people like you!  We do not receive monetary support from diocesan or national Church structures.

I need your help today, and so do the unborn. Thank you in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions about Priests for Life Fundraising

God bless you for your kindness!  

The Final Countdown has begun! Are you prepared?

The Final Countdown to Election Day
has Begun!
 

 Friends,

With Labor Day upon us the election campaigns have entered their final phase and people are paying more attention. 

This is our LAST CHANCE to make sure every Catholic in America – and every other citizen! – knows where the candidates and political parties stand on abortion and what their moral obligation is as voters. 

You and the Priests for Life family have a unique and critical role to play in this. 

I’ll explain exactly what that is in just a moment.

Before I do, however, I have a critical and urgent request of you:

Please make the very best contribution to Priests for Life that you can!

And do this right now … before you go on to another webpage.

I know this will require a sacrifice on your part. 

Still I’m hoping you will do this because we simply have to make sure all pro-life Americans – and especially all pro-life Catholics – understand how crucial it is that they VOTE their pro-life values and principles on Election Day 2016.

And right now we don’t have near the amount of funds needed to do that. 

One reason why is due to fact that donations to Priests for Life in June and July were down $203,337 compared with these two months last year.

That was a totally unexpected shortfall and is really hampering one absolutely critical project we need to carry out if we are to successfully mobilize, energize and educate faithful pro-life Catholics and convince them to VOTE this November 8.

That project is Priests for Life’s ongoing effort to engage the clergy and get them to fight alongside us during this pivotal election. 

In order for our bishops and priests to lead the Church in America they have to throw off the shackles of fear and get actively involved in the fight to end abortion.

Without question the silence and indifference of the Catholic clergy in America is the single biggest obstacle preventing us from winning victory over abortion. 

That is especially true right now. 

In a very short time tens of millions of Catholics will enter the ballot box and cast their votes for President, a new Congress and other important elected offices.

Sadly a large percentage of these Catholics will reject the clear and precise teaching of the Church and vote for candidates who not merely support abortion but actively work to advance its deadly agenda. Many others won’t even hear it from their pulpits, as some Church leaders cower in silence.

Our fellow citizens are not being properly instructed on the brutal and unjust horror of abortion or on the reason why the Church is so ardently and so passionately pro-life. 

Our Priests for Life Pastoral Team is crisscrossing the country in an all-out effort to reach out to these Catholics – and all Americans – and teach them that they have a grave moral obligation to use their votes to defend the unborn.

But we can only do so much.  It lies with all the clergy – bishops, priests, and deacons – to preach against abortion from the pulpit on a consistent basis and in a convincing manner. 

And that’s where you and the Priests for Life family come into play.

As I’ve mentioned in my prior letters to you, Priests for Life has two powerful tools that pro-life warriors like you can use to break down the false roadblocks and hand-wringing hurdles that many in the Church use to excuse their deafening silence and abject refusal to preach against abortion from the pulpit.

My problem right now, though, is two-fold:  Time and Money.

With regard to the issue of “Time” we simply don’t have much left if we’re going to make an impact on the November election.  Less than sixty days in fact.  We’ve simply got to step up our distribution efforts if we’re going to get our mind-changing materials to bishops and priests across the country. 

In case you’ve forgotten, these two powerful weapons are:

  • My book “Proclaiming the Message of Life” which helps both clergy and laity see the pro-life message in the Sunday readings; and …
  • Our “Election Toolkit” which gives bishops and priests tools to instruct Catholics during an election, and which helps them understand that legally they are permitted to say and do much more than they think.

You can look at these as the proverbial TWO-EDGED SWORD that will not only give clergy the legal guidance needed to dispel their hesitancy to preach from the pulpit, but also provide them with ample homily material to give their sermons maximum impact with parishioners.

But the cost to get these “swords” into the hands of the clergy is prohibitive:

Upwards of $250,000 when all is said and done.

Which brings me to my “Money” problem.

Knowing how critically important this project is, I went out on a limb and committed Priests for Life funds to the distribution project even though that required “robbing” scarce funds from other important election-related projects, such as the “Catholic Voter Outreach” task Priests for Life has been asked to spearhead.

Call what I did a “leap of faith” if you will but now I’m hoping you will catch me, so to speak, by making the very best financial contribution to Priests for Life that you possibly can.

The goal all along has been to get copies of “Proclaiming the Message of Life” and our “Election Toolkit” to every bishop and priest in the country.  We’re working hard to do that but need your immediate help to raise the tens of thousands of dollars needed to finish the job. 

That’s why I’ve sent you this urgent appeal for help today.

And when you factor in the $203,000 shortfall that hit us during June and July, your gift today takes on even greater significance.

All I’m asking you to do is the very best you can. 

As you prayerfully consider how best to respond, look at what’s at stake this November Election Day:

  • The Supreme Court
  • Religious liberty
  • The pro-life movement
  • The Church in America
  • The moral foundation of our country
  • In a word …

 EVERYTHING!

Which is why I’m hoping you will CLICK HERE and do whatever you must to make a much-needed donation to Priests for Life.

If you can contribute $50 or $100 or possibly even more, that would be a real blessing. 

If all you can give today is $15 or $25, we can use it.

All I ask is that you do as much as you possibly can.

We simply must get our nation’s clergy working alongside us (instead of against us) as we use these final days of the election campaigns to convince millions of our fellow Catholics to get actively engaged in the political process and vote their pro-life principles and values on Election Day!

Thank you for your urgently needed help today.  You are among Priests for Life’s most active and most loyal family members, which is why I am counting on you so heavily today and why I look forward to hearing from you in the next hour or so.

In the meantime, know that in heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifices I know you are making to continue your partnership with Priests for Life’s pro-life mission, I will continue to remember you at every Mass I offer; as will all the priests of Priests for Life.  Thank you again and may God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director
Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries

P.S. As you consider how much to invest in Priests for Life’s work to get our bishops, priests and deacons fighting alongside us in the battle to end abortion (instead of actively working against us), keep in mind all that’s at stake this November:

            … the Supreme Court

                        … Religious liberty

                                    … the pro-life movement

                                                … the Church in America

                                                            … the moral foundation of our country

And then CLICK HERE and give more to Priests for Life than you think you can.

Trust me on this.  God is never outdone in generosity and He will bless you for the sacrifices you will make on behalf of His vulnerable and defenseless unborn children.  Not only that, but the gift you entrust to Priests for Life will be the best use of your precious pro-life dollars that you can make.  Of that much I can promise you.  Thank you for your courageous pro-life witness and your unwavering dedication to the cause of life.
