Dear Missionary of the Gospel of Life-Lay Associate:

Blessings upon you this Lenten Season!

It is a joy for me to be united with you in prayer, study, community, and witness for the Gospel of Life. I hope you are progressing in your prayers and Pro-life action. I ask you to continue implementing the formation steps outlined on our website.  It is critical that we be thoroughly familiar with, and participate in the Aims, Disciplines and Spirituality of the Missionaries.

I am asking that all the Lay Associates prayerfully participate in a first Friday of the month, Pro-life Examination of Conscience as written by our Founder, Fr. Frank Pavone. The Examination is a powerful vehicle for personal holiness, prayer, and compassionate action. A Pro-life Lent is also a timely article for personal devotion and sharing with others.

We are working on coordinating visits and Life Cell gatherings in your area. Please, let me know if you would be willing to assist me or one of our staff with a visit to your State or city? I also ask you to help me spread the word to those you think might be interested in being a Lay Missionary. Please, email a personal invitation to you friends asking them to visit the website and consider inquiring about a personal association with you and the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. It is imperative that they fill out the sign up form to receive information from us. Also, if you know of someone who has contacted us but has not received a reply, please encourage them to contact us again at the email address listed below.

Our Lord is doing great things in the earth and the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life is one of them. Let us advance this Gospel of Life during this season of Lent assured of Resurrection Victory!

God Bless You,

Jim Pinto
