Dear Friends of Priests for Life,
 

We love to hear from you, and we want you to hear some of the compliments we have received from others. Please know that you inspire us, and that we are always grateful for your support! -- Fr. Frank Pavone


"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.

..please pass on to Father my appreciation and thankfulness to him for his unwavering,  holy commitment to life and to our constitutional republic and its defenders.

Father's prayer this morning was what so many of us needed to be fed spiritually.  (Father's prayers always are.)  I have posted and shared it, along with the prayer for tonight.

At a time when the diabolical is so strong among us, and Catholic leadership so often buckles into its temptation and joins in its efforts--Father Frank stands apart as a defender of Jesus' truth and justice, crying out in the wilderness.  

So many prayers for Father, his health and protection.

Prayers for you and the team in this new year. - Jennifer 


Hi Ms. King. I just watched you on a news channel, and I wanted to take the time to thank you for your healing that you're trying to do in this country girl. … everyone talks about your uncle. He was a wonderful man, and it was because of him that my father fought for civil rights. But you need to be recognized you've done just as much you've taken just as much heat and you're absolutely a beautiful person and I would have thank you God. I'm so worried about where we're headed in his country. .. Thank you so much. Thank you for being who you are. Miss alveda King your inspiration yourself.
Thank you Fr. Frank for all your work over the past 20+ years to advocate for the unborn babies around the world and your tireless efforts to overturn the horrible Roe v Wade decision erroneously made almost 50 years ago. I am proud and honored to be part of your Priests for Life and MAGAfor life movements. We prolife Catholics and all faiths must bond together to defeat the radical left and overturn Roe v Wade. God bless you always Fr. Pavone, my prayers are always for you and please pray for me also. God bless America!!! - Richard
May God bless you. May His will be done here on earth through God loving people like yourself, Fr. Frank. I will humbly, keep you in my prayers. All and only through our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen. - Paul
My husband is on the same page as me as far as abortion is concerned. We love to watch the masses and nightly programs of Fr. Frank Pavone. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate his support for our country, President Trump, and the Pro-Life agenda. As for me, Fr. Pavone is one of the best reasons for being a Catholic. I have been so very disillusioned with the catholic faith via other priests and bishops. Fr. Pavone helps me hang on to the Catholic faith as I cry about how the magisterium has let me down.
Thank you for your years of encouragement and leadership. Knowing what you went through you protect preborn lives has helped to think that there is hope someday in this battle. May God continue to anoint you, protect you and cause His hope to dwell in your heart forever. - Robert
God Bess you! I am a brand new Christian. Though I know Father Franke Pavone is Catholic, he's part of what brought me to God. - Jackie

Thank you everyone at Priests for Life for all that you do to protect the unborn. Also, Fr. Frank’s beautiful and meaningful homilies are a daily source of hope for all who are experiencing weariness during these very difficult times in our nation. Sending my deepest gratitude for being renewed each day by joining the 10 a.m. mass. Love, Jacqueline
Father Frank, you are doing an incredible job! I came across you months before the election. I enjoy and appreciate your intelligence on life!! And certainly the great work that you do to save the unborn! .... Remain courageous and of sound mind. You are an inspiration to us all and I thank God for you.

Father Frank and the Ministry of Priests for Life has been an incredible gift to me and many others as we navigate (with Christ's) through these very uncertain times. My mother mentioned Father Frank and his Pro Life ministry to me around 15 yrs ago. Mom was a beautiful example of Christ and was very active in her parish pro life ministry...  She was faithful in this ministry up until cancer took her life. Unfortunately, I never bothered to look up Father Frank. The day after the 2020 election I received a Facebook post from Diamond and Silk that promoted a nighttime prayer featuring Dr. Alveda King and Father Pavone. This was definitely a timely gift from God that I needed.  I have been sharing many of the daily masses and other ministry programs with many of my family and friends. Many appreciate and are blessed by your ministry… Praying for Gods hand of protection and supporting your life giving Christ centered ministry. Thank you. - Timothy


Father Pavone, our deepest thanks for your Homily ... You made it so clear to us all, you answered all of our questions as to how to evaluate the candidates and we all here [in New Jersey], who saw and heard you... send our blessings.  -- Betty 


Dear Father: The statement in your column, "we have all aborted God’s will in our lives," is an excellent tool of language to use not only with the pro-aborts... but also with those not too fervent in fighting abortion. Thank you for those words. That is why I like your ... programs. and [columns]. They give me the powerful language I lack. Dominus Vobiscum and love in Jesus the lord of life – Andrea, CA


Thank you so much for all your sermons about the political responsibility of each of us in the voting booth. .... I have found the little booklets helpful but your talks definitely fine-tuned the decision making process.  I now see so much more clearly…how we must always be ready for battle. - Laura


Just this past year or so, I have been fortunate enough to see you on television. The first time I did see you and heard your message I was in tears. I am one of the two victims of abortion. This of which I have just realized. I never saw myself as victim. Only a murderer. But thanks to your voice and the loving embrace of the catholic church, I am ever so slowly emerging from this deep abyss that I have been in for about 10 years.


I am a Protestant minister who first became acquainted with Priests for Life through the Eternal Word network. I have been a faithful listener to your programs on the TV and the Shortwave programming. I have followed many of your suggestions - writing letters to Editors/ for one. I have been amazed at the doors that have opened- and how the Lord has been drawing me more and more to unite with Catholics in this great cultural issue of our time- the holocaust of the unborn. I have even had articles published in the Dubuque Catholic Diocese Newspaper. Now I feel led to move from listening and praying for your ministry to supporting it financially.  Here is a small contribution to your work. We are non-Catholics who are really inspired by your appearances on EWTN.


Please tell Dr. Alveda King I was watching Fox news...and she did an outstanding interview.  She stands on truth as we do in RUrecovery.com. I just wanted her to know how much I appreciated her words, demeanor and sweet spirit....Thank you…We need more people like this in and on the news.  -Benjamin


Greetings, I just saw an interview with Mrs. King on a news channel. Very good !!! I have been saying what she has said. We are all the same race.
The human race. Thank you. Keep saying it & I will too. We will make a difference. - Dave


Thank you Father Frank. For this beautiful homily. That's bring us closer to our father Jesus christ.. - Connie

Dear Father Frank Pavone, Though I am not Catholic, I am a pro-life Christian. Thank you so much for all that you do for life, and for your leadership on the pro-life issue!  You were one of the first people to follow me on my newly created Twitter account in March, and I thank you so much for that! I have been passionate about life ever since I was 14 and pregnant with my son. Today, I’m 54, and the Lord has certainly taken me on a journey over these past 40 years, including, most recently, becoming a published author of a pro-life Christian novel entitled "The Dream."  Though fiction, this novel packs a powerful message about forgiveness and healing after abortion. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign has added it to their resource list on their website. My website, www.deboraharlene.com, has a variety of information,.- Deborah Arlene


Dear Father Pavone and all priests for life, I join you from the north east of England, almost daily for the Rosary. I particularly enjoy Holy Hour and the Sorrowful mysteries and the wonderful and meaningful commentary .... The deep and thoughtful commentary enables me to remain focussed and I really feel like I’m ‘with’ Christ in his sufferings.  Each night I trace back to this particular Holy Hour and place all my concerns with the Lord. God is certainly working overtime in the USA re your Pro life mission thank to the most unlikely person in Donald Trump – but then that’s how God works. - Thank you and God Bless you all so much - Geraldine   

 


Hello Fr. Pavone, I have followed a couple of your presentation on youtube which have really helped strengthening my pro-life views. - Joseph


Dear Rev. Frank Pavone, I hope that you are well. I’m Father Mateus ... from ... Massachusetts. I’m writing to you today to congratulate you on your support to our President Trump. It’s really comforting to know that there are other brother priests who share of the same political views.


I am so appreciative you took the time to answer my questions. Knowing that Fr. Pavone provides services even when certain organizations do not have the funds to pay helps explain why the administrative costs are proportionately higher than I would expect them to be. I will continue to support his ministry. Blessings to all of you for doing God’s work on this earth! - Ginger


RE: An Open Letter to the Pastors of the United States - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life

Dear Father Pavone,

Though I am Canadian, I realize the importance of this upcoming US election. Current events that have resulted in violence and bloodshed world-wide, are not really about racism, but about the global agenda to change America. It is a spiritual battle for the mind, body and soul of the world.

Many Christian pastors like you are standing up against this global agenda – may the Lord bless your efforts.

I admire you for your courage in taking a bold step to support President Donald Trump who has done a lot to uphold Christian values and freedoms.

I am sharing your Letter to the Pastors of the US with my contacts who have relatives and friends in the US.

I pray that together we can stand up for godly values in the public square and in so doing, stand for the protection of our God-given rights and freedoms.

We pray that the Lord will bless P. Trump and that he may continue to stand up for life and family. Together, we can Make the World Great Again for the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

May God bless you and all who are standing up for Christ in these difficult times. - Deanna and Francis


Dear Father Frank:

Thank you for your tireless work on behalf of the unborn, the disenfranchised, those who are outcasts or disabled or rejected, lonely, sick, depressed! You are a gifted leader. Thank you for your service to our President, serving on his ProLife Team! We are all the better for the efforts of those members and for the Catholics for Trump group. 

The nation and our President and Vice President need our prayers, help and support now more than ever. You letter is “Right on!” You see through the smokescreen to the reality of what has happened, is happening and what needs to be done. You have my full support in separating the wheat from the chaff, the legal from the illegal, the legitimate from the illegitimate, the Fake News and Lies from The Truth, the Evil from the Good. Thank God for you and  your colleagues/teammates,including the wonderful Dr.Alveda King (it must get lonely at times), and thank God for this Trump-Pence administration. The Deep State, Swamp and MSM have been an unending obstacle course for our President, yet he soldiers on, with global, national and more quiet locally-impacting achievements that are often ignored or dismissed by these enemies. He has courage, strength and endurance plus tenacity that can only come from God Himself. 

The prayer you composed is beautiful and powerful. My plan is to pray it often. I have watched you, off and on, for years on EWTN; however, with this election cycle, I really became a bit of a “groupie.” I looked forward to tuning in on RSBN in recent weeks for the Trump rallies, as so many did. I have been moved by the evangelization of you, Dr. King, Rev. Franklin Graham, Pastor Robert Jeffress, Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sr. Dierdre “Dede” Byrne, P.O.S.C., M.D. and by the newest SCOTUS Justice Amy Coney Barrett....

... I am willing to fight for this President’s [Trump] Administration and for Life, as this, I believe is precisely what Our Lord, Jesus Christ, expects of us! Thank you for being an example for us to follow! May God continue to bless, protect and guide you and your ministry, your “team(s)”, our President and Vice President, all of your dear ones, your “entourages”, our great nation, the defenseless least among us, and people of Good Will everywhere. Respectfully and with love and prayers, - Maureen


Wow I must say as a raised Catholic kid for 11 years in there schools and church; I haven't seen anyone like you in there organization. Praise God! Awesome prayer and work compiling all this information and laying it out there for the people in the Catholic church. Great work!! So many folks in the church don't know that God chose President Trump. I'm so glad to see you are definitely hearing from God and His Spirit is with you! I don't do mainstream churches but I see your eyes are open!! Roe vrs Wade shall be overturned. Glory to Jesus!!! - John 


God bless you Fr. Frank. You are an absolute gem, a true treasure of the Church. May Mary keep you very safe in Her Immaculate Heart and under Her Mantle of Protection.  (I will be tuning in nightly (as often as possible) to hear your inspiring, powerful, insightful and comforting words of Truth.  May God bless you now and forever more.)
I have been a monthly supporter for a long time and you have inspired me to help the defenseless babies unborn and now born; how?
I am fostering a medically fragile infant with hopes to adopt her if that becomes an option. This infant has spent 5 of her 8 months in the hospital due to neglect and a traumatic brain injury; as a nurse I saw this happen often in the NYC hospitals. Thank You for your pro life message and supporting our pro- life president. With Gratitude, - Elizabeth

Thank you Father, We all here in Connecticut appreciate, along with our son, Fr. Michael...,all you are doing in support of our President Donald J. Trump. God bless you and all your followers… - Franklin

Dear Father Pavone,

I am writing this letter, on Giving Tuesday, to thank you for all you do to help promote the pro-life cause. I regret that I can't afford to donate much money at this time but I am enclosing a donation of $20. I also want to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thank you for all you do to defend and protect life and educate Catholics and others on this pre-eminent issue. Thank you also for all your efforts during the election to educate and encourage Catholic voters to choose their faith over loyalty to a political party and their feelings about President Trump. The faithful witness and heroic efforts, given by you and the members of your organization, to push back against the culture of death, is a ray of hope that God will yet touch the hardened hearts of all who seek to solve their problems by killing the innocent.

I wish I had more to give but as an added token of my appreciation I am enclosing a poem I wrote a few years ago as a present to my brother, who works to defend life.... I must, however, give credit where credit is due, so even though I wrote the words I do not claim to be the author. Writing poems is beyond by limited talents and abilities. The real author, of this poem and others I have written, is the Holy Spirit, Who always guides me and helps me put down what is in my heart but beyond my ability to express. So, once again I thank you for all that you do. May God bless and richly reward you for all you do to proclaim God's beautiful gift of life. Sincerely, Laura

THE KEEPERS

Blessed are the defenders of God's beautiful gift of life;
the unsung heroes, the keepers of God's greatest treasures.
You uphold the dignity of the unborn child,
the handicapped, the imperfect and broken,
the old and infirm, the sick and dying.
Your vision penetrates the external vulnerability,
the brokenness, the frailty of humanity at its weakest.
In doing so you peer into the very soul,
which is the window to God's heart, and touch the Divine.
With the brightness of truth
you expose the darkness of the culture of death.
Against the demonic voices of hell your message forcefully proclaims to all the world
God's unconditional love for every human being.
Yes blessed are those who work to save
and protect every person.
For as much as God loves the "least of these':
 He also loves THE KEEPERS.
"Blessed are they who hunger and thirst
for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. "Mt 5:6


Happy Birthday Father! May the Lord bless you and Holy Queen Mother Mary guide you. We so much appreciate and give thanks for your ministry and teaching. Your homilies during daily Mass are truly inspired and essential catechesis to the faithful. In every era there is someone provided by GOD who stands out and guides the faithful. During these exceptionally trying times, you are the leader of all Catholics and Christians. We give thanks to GOD for His gift of you to us. Praised be JESUS! - Robert and Cisca


Dear Father Pavone, My twin sister, Rev. Diane ... and I are ordained Lutheran ministers in the North American Lutheran Church and Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ. Both very Pro-Life. We love and enjoy your blessed programming so very much! In our small way the Lord has used us and our family church. We have always had such a strong love of the unborn. Several things in our life had touched us so deeply for the unborn...My sister and I love the Lord and His precious Mother so much and are glad we can be of assistance in our Lord's work to save those precious little unborn babies. Our older brother is an ordained Lutheran minister and loves the unborn too. Our cousin, Father Michael .... is a Catholic priest who loves the unborn too. Again, we love you and your messages! Pastors Donna and Diane. P. S. M.A.G.A. We love President Trump too! 


In honor of Fr Pavone's birthday I'm sending a donation! Fr Pavone, if you are reading this. I want to say thank you for being a faithful, strong priest. The world needs more of you. Your passion & love doesn't go unnoticed... You are truly a light & an inspiration! May God always bless you! You bless so many! Much love to you & I hope this is a special b'day !!!!  - Jackie


Please tell Father Pavone that he has my family’s support and love for the work he is doing to defend the unborn. I read an article in the Wanderer newspaper that Father had an award called ‘a life for life award’ cancelled.... We are sending a contribution from our giving account to the Priests for Life in honor of Father Pavone. More importantly we will pray a rosary for Father and for your staff there. Please keep up your courageous and much needed work. - Will



Dear Father Frank,
I just want you to know that I am so inspired by what you do in the Pro Life Movement. Who would have thought that you would become such a “luminary” as Fr. John Sorrento used to call priests who did something worth while? Blessings to you dear Father, and May our Holy Mother continue to watch over you.

- Archbishop Anthony, The Archdiocese of New York (Orthodox)

Letter regarding the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, Most Rev. David A. Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburg, March 2010

- Rev. William G. Curlin


Thank you for your support and for the commitment to your organization to the dignity of human life. With every best wish and warm personal regards, I am Fraternally yours, Rev. Howard J. Hubbard, Bishop of Albany
Thank you for your kindness in sending me the Priests for Life Study Guide for the document, Living the Gospel of Life, issued by bishops of the United States in 1998. The current controversy regarding Catholic politicians and the issue of abortion underscores how timely and necessary your Study Guide is. While some of the energy surrounding this question is created by the proximity of elections, the situation is one which is the fruit of many years' development, and a true change of heart among Catholic politicians will take much time and effort. I believe the bishops of our country are committed to that process, and the Priests for Life Study Guide will be very helpful in this important undertaking. Thanking you for devoted ministry which gives a voice to the voiceless unborn, I am Sincerely yours in Christ,
-- Most Rev. William J. Levada, (previously) Archbishop of San Francisco

"Your seminars were extraordinarily well-received. Many of our priests and deacons expressed to me that they thought your presentations were among the most practical and theologically sound we have heard on the subject of protection of the unborn children..."
-- Most Rev. Rene Gracida, Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi

Thank you for presenting at the recent Leadership Conference of the National Catholic Student Coalition. I am elated to learn that the students were enthusiastic about your workshops. That, of course, does not surprise me given your commitment and expertise in the area of respect for human life.
-- Most Rev. Peter A. Rosazza, Auxiliary Bishop, New Haven, CT.

Fr. Frank Pavone, of Priests for Life, is a dynamic and inspiring speaker...
-- Most Rev. Daniel M Buechlein, OSB, Archbishop of Indianapolis.

As you are well aware, the Diocese of Samoa Pago Pago is a missionary diocese 14 degrees South of the equator. We are perhaps one of the more distant locations you service. Our priest's and deacons each receive a copy of the newsletter, and we read with interest the outstanding work you and your brother priests are doing. Be assured of a continuous place in our prayers as you move in to the Jubilee Year and the Third Millennium. Sincerely in the Holy Family,
-- Most Rev. J. Quinn Weitzel, MM, Bishop of Samoa - Pago Pago.

I'd like to thank Priests for Life, therefore, for acknowledging the efforts of The Leaven staff to articulate and promote the church's teaching on this important pro-life issue in a manner accessible to the average Catholic. With gratitude for your personal commitment to proclaim the Gospel of Life, I am Sincerely yours in Jesus the Lord of life,
-- Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, Archdiocese of Kansas City, KS

From Singapore and Korea I have been watching your presentations on all cable and network stations. You have been consistently excellent. Just what we've been needing and not having. Congratulations in an effort most helpful in setting forth Church teaching! In the Lord,
-- Archbishop Edwin F. O'Brien, Archbishop for Military Services

Your continued prayerful support is also very much appreciated, both for me and the faithful of the diocese. Thank you for your great work.
-- Most Reverend Robert W. Finn, DD, Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

Cardinal Bevilacqua remains grateful to you and all those associated with Priests of Life for all that you do to protect and defend the sacredness of all human life from the moment of conception to natural death.
-- Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Administrative Secretary

In encouraging your brother priests to become active in the Pro-Life Movement, you are greatly strengthening the efforts of the entire Church in the United States to bear witness to the Gospel of Life. May the Lord continue to bless your efforts in the years ahead.

– James Cardinal Hickey, Archbishop of Washington

On behalf of the Alliance of the Holy Family International, I would like to thank you for having made the International Clergy Retreat Seminar on the Alliance of the Two Hearts a success. Your valuable contribution has certainly made a big difference to all the priests who participated. The Alliance of the Holy Family movement highly respects your expertise and its contribution to its family apostolate. I pray that you would continue supporting us. And as we approach the great Jubilee Year, I fervently pray that we can help bring back more souls to the Church and to the practice of the Sacraments. The Holy Mother Church needs your selfless generosity in this great time of need.
-- Ricardo J. Cardinal Vidal, Archbishop of Cebu and AHFI Clergy Chairman

It is very apparent that God is blessing the work of Priests for Life abundantly.

-- Rene H. Gracida, Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi

Congratulations on the very fine growth of Priests for Life and the expansion of its service. I am happy and proud to be associated with your group. In Peoria, we are delighted to offer your newsletter in our monthly mailing. As the months and years go along, I know that Priests for Life will have increasing influence in informing and supporting those priests and other ministers who wish to speak up clearly and consistently for the right to life.
-- Most Reverend John J. Myers, Bishop of Peoria (now Archbishop of Newark)

I write today to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous priestly service on behalf of life. Frank, your presentation was really excellent. God has gifted you with an ability to speak well and motivate people effectively. I was especially touched by the nuances you utilized in regards to the Eucharist. The two uses for the sentence "this is my body" will not be forgotten by me and your practical application of a deeper meaning of "do this in remembrance of me" will be worked into many of my own talks in the future.
-- Most Rev. John McCarthy, Bishop Emeritus of Austin

Congratulations on the outstanding interview. Frank, I praise God for articulate, faith-filled young men like you.
-- Paul V. Dudley, Bishop Emeritus of Sioux Falls

I have always noted that your own talks are pithy, very much to the point, very easy to listen to and extremely powerful. I am in complete agreement with everything that His Eminence (Cardinal O’Connor) says about you in his letter of endorsement. I can only say that he chose wisely and well when he selected Father Frank Pavone to be his ambassador around the country in promotion of the pro-life message and, in particular, Priests for Life.
-- Most Rev. James M. Moynihan, Bishop of Syracuse

I invoke the Lord’s blessings upon your important work.
-- Archbishop Agostino Cacciavillan, Apostolic Pro-Nuncio to the United States

I appreciate your leadership in the ministry of reverence for life and support for priests in pastoral assignments to teach and promote the Church's teachings.
-- Most Reverend Elden Francis Curtiss, Archbishop of Omaha

I also want to thank you and your staff for all Priests for Life does to promote human life in this increasingly more strident culture of death in the nation.
-- Most Reverend Elden Francis Curtiss, Archbishop of Omaha

I want you to proceed with The Gabriel Project within the area. I appreciate the content of the brochure you included, and I have trust in the quality of materials which are prepared by Priests for Life.
-- Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Ogdensburg

I am pleased to participate in a small way in this program. I want to assure you of our desire to assist the program in every possible way.
-- Most Rev. J. Quinn Weitzel, MM, DD Bishop of Samoa - Pago Pago

I have read your updated Mission Statement and I think everything looks positive and well developed. I both admire and am grateful for your work. Thank you so much for your generous gift of yourself and your time to the clergy and people of our diocese. You were spectacularly wonderful and we are deeply grateful.
-- Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Denver

Congratulations on the great effort you give to Priests for Life and for all you do so well. "Thank you" and God bless you and all you do for the unborn.
-- Most Rev. James Niedergeses, Bishop Emeritus of Nashville, TN

Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries began as a single weekend retreat held on the grounds of Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Darby, PA, for persons suffering emotional and spiritual pain from their participation in abortion. From this small seed, in only eight years this ministry has grown to offer over 1200 retreats across the United States, and now spreading to many countries throughout the world. The retreat process has been effective in bringing relief from the suffering that is common to many persons after abortion; nightmares, depression, anxiety, difficulties in relationships and a host of other symptoms that can bring great personal, relational and family suffering. With effective healing programs like Rachel’s Vineyard, we can help to bring and end to this suffering, and help bring healing to individuals, couples and families.
-- Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia

[Regarding Priests for Life: A Global Mission] – thank you for sending me the video on the work of Priests for life. While I had already known of the significant efforts Priests for Life is making in the cause of human life, the video certainly enriched both my understanding and appreciation. Know that you are in my prayer as you reach out to more and more clergy and engage them in service of the Gospel of Life. Thank you for your own wonderful leadership.
-- Most Rev. Richard J Malone, Auxiliary Bishop of Boston, South Region

[Regarding Priests for Life: A Global Mission] – An engaging presentation of the ministry of priests for life, this well-produced video underscores the significant role clergy play in the pro-life movement, as demonstrated in the leadership of Fr. Frank Pavone and his associates. I commend Priests for Life for challenging that part of our culture that fails to show respect for life from conception to natural demise. We can never underestimate the importance of such essential work.
-- Most Rev. Thomas V. Daily, DD Bishop of Brooklyn

Dear Catholic Faithful: Among the numerous groups worthy of mention that seek to promote a "Culture of Life," I wish to commend the efforts of the Priests for Life under the inspiration of Fr. Frank Pavone ... I enthusiastically support their efforts, and, in particular within our diocese, those of Mr. Michael Colicchio and Mrs. Lisa Morris who are among the first lay affiliates. An essential part of the endeavors of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life entails the creation of "Life Cells" consisting of lay affiliate members who make certain commitments to prayer, personal study, and pro-life work to the extent that their duties permit. As such, Mike and Lisa seek to start up three initial "Life Cells" within the Diocese beginning with Knoxville, Chattanooga and Johnson City. In support of Mike an Lisa's efforts, I encourage you to learn more about the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life by visiting their website at www.priestsforlife.org. Priests for Life has contributed significantly to the promotion of a "Culture of Life" by helping to save lives, strengthening families and bringing countless people to a deeper appreciation of the great gift of life and the dignity of each and every human being. As Mike and Lisa go forth with my blessing, I ask you to be supportive of their efforts. May God continue to bless you. Sincerely yours in the Lord
-- Most Rev. Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D., Bishop of Knoxville

-- Roger Cardinal Mahony, Archbishop of Los Angeles

At the beginning of my mission here in the United States of America, it has been my pleasure to know of you and the good work of Priests for Life.

I remember when I first came to know Priests for Life and now see, to my great satisfaction, how the association has grown. I am delighted to see that Priests for Life is associated with so many dioceses and that the bishops are giving you the support you need in this vital ministry. Let us hope that this support increases as well as the priest members. May the Lord and our Blessed Mother bless Priests for Life.
-- His Eminence Alfonso Cardinal Lopez Trujillo, Pontifical Council for the Family

The pro-life work of Priests for Life, and Father Pavone in particular, has saved lives, strengthened families and brought countless numbers of people to a deeper appreciation of the great gift of life and the dignity of each and every human being. Priests for Life has been arguably one of the most important movements in the history of North American Church. With the establishment of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life even greater spiritual strength will be added to the most urgent goal of ending abortion and other pro-death practices in our society.
-- Most Reverend Robert J. Baker, Bishop Birmingham

A Study Guide to Humanae Vitae, Of Human Life has just been published this year by “Priests for Life” and carries my Imprimatur. This small book would be an excellent tool for study of Humanae Vitae for clergy and laity involved in working with families, couples preparing for the Sacrament of Matrimony, and Catholic students - all of whom face the real issues of life that Humanae Vitae deals with.
-- Most Reverend Robert J. Baker, Bishop Birmingham

-- Most Reverend Patrick Zurek, Bishop of Amarillo (September 2008)

I am happy to approve and allow the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, a lay association of the faithful affiliated with Priests for Life, to be active in the Diocese of Harrisburg. This canonically approved association has a noble and holy mission of witness to the sanctity of human life. Its members are committed to serving the Gospel of Life through prayer, personal study, and pro-life work. There are already members of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life at work in our diocese. I pray that their prayers and efforts will bear abundant fruit. We are all called to welcome and to share the Gospel of Life. We see the image of God's glory in every human person. May the Lord strengthen all of us in the holy task of serving life, of respecting and serving the dignity of every human person.
-- Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhodes, Bishop of Harrisburg (February 2009)

First of all, a word of welcome to all of you who are attending this Leadership Seminar and especially to Dr. Theresa Burke, Kevin Burke and Janet Morana from Rachel’s Vineyard who are leading this programme. I am most grateful to you for travelling from the other side of the Atlantic to be with us at Leeds Trinity & All Saints and for helping us in this venture. The work of Rachel’s Vineyard is well known to me and is something I have eagerly encouraged to this diocese. At first hand, I have witnessed the work it undertakes and of the tender compassion, in the name of Christ, it brings about. Many today look on abortion as a curative solution to an unwanted problem; few speak of the traumatic after-effects of those who have procured a termination and have subsequently come to realize the import of what has indeed taken place. I had very much hoped to be with you for much of this day, but due to the impending death of a great friend of mine I find myself having to travel elsewhere to make my farewells. I pray earnestly for the success of this week-end, for all who are facilitating and leading it, for all who are participating in the seminars and for all who, as a result of what happens here, will be touched by the gentle and healing mercy of the Lord through your care. Devotedly and with my blessing,
-- Arthur Roche, Bishop of Leeds

Dear Fr. Pavone: Your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thank you also for everything you and Priests for Life do to protect our most vulnerable unborn brothers and sisters. Please know that you and everyone at Priests for Life remain in my prayers and that I am Fraternally yours in Christ,

+Michael J. Sheridan, Bishop of Colorado Springs

"The Rachel's Vineyard Retreat experience provides a wonderful opportunity for the healing ministry of Jesus to continue in our Church. Psychologically and spiritually, we know the deep effect that abortion has on all those involved, particularly the parents and especially the woman who has made this decision. Christ reaches out to all who need healing and Rachel's Vineyard is a beautiful way to extend the healing ministry of Christ to women and men who need his compassion and love. I am grateful to the retreat team who are so willing to walk with those who seek healing and grace. What a great ministry for our Church to concretely bring the love of Jesus to His people!"
- Bishop Rozanski, Auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore, Maryland

Thank you for the work you do to defend the life of the most defenseless. The ministry of Priests for Life is a much-needed work in order to overcome the culture of death. Please be assured of my continued prayers for Priests for Life.

-- Most Rev. John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark (February 1, 2012)

September 2011 Dear Supporters of Priests for Life, Over my ten years as Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland, I crossed paths many times with Father Frank Pavone. During all this time I have found him dedicated to the preservation of life for the unborn. He and I both work and pray for the day when we will eliminate this horrendous evil from the face of the earth. Supporting abortion happens to be the politically correct stance to take these days. God would love to restore the peace and love found in the Garden of Eden before the fall. It is our challenge in this age to build up the Kingdom of God. We will only achieve this goal if we let his will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Please keep Father Pavone in your prayers. ... The work he had done since founding Priests for Life must continue as we face the future. Please continue to support Priests for Life. I was proud to stand up with Father Pavone when he asked me to serve on the Advisory Board of Bishops. Every opportunity that comes my way to stand up for life will find me speaking out against abortion. Let us pray, pray and pray some more for the mothers carrying infants in their wombs. Also, let us pray for those who perform the abortions and work in those clinics for they need God’s grace to see the evil of their deeds. God bless! (Most Rev.) Roger W. Gries, O.S.B., Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland
Please know of my appreciation for your leadership in the promotion of the Gospel of Life throughout the United States of America.
- Most Rev. Alfred A Schlert, Bishop of Allentown, PA (August 27, 2019)

In the capacity of National Director, I know Fr. Pavone has traveled the length and breadth of our country encouraging Catholic Priests to actively participate in the pro-life movement. I know of no effort more noble, more timely or important than the recruitment of our clergy in the cause for life.
--John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York

I have known Fr. Pavone and have followed the work of Priests for Life for many years, and have witnessed the expansion of this ministry to its current international scope, as well as to its widespread engagement of the laity in service to the most vulnerable of God's children in the proclamation of the Gospel of Life.

-- Most Rev. Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York, Dec. 6, 2010


..please pass on to Father my appreciation and thankfulness to him for his unwavering,  holy commitment to life and to our constitutional republic and its defenders.

Father's prayer this morning was what so many of us needed to be fed spiritually.  (Father's prayers always are.)  I have posted and shared it, along with the prayer for tonight.

At a time when the diabolical is so strong among us, and Catholic leadership so often buckles into its temptation and joins in its efforts--Father Frank stands apart as a defender of Jesus' truth and justice, crying out in the wilderness.  

So many prayers for Father, his health and protection.

Prayers for you and the team in this new year. - Jennifer 


My husband is on the same page as me as far as abortion is concerned. We love to watch the masses and nightly programs of Fr. Frank Pavone. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate his support for our country, President Trump, and the Pro-Life agenda. As for me, Fr. Pavone is one of the best reasons for being a Catholic. I have been so very disillusioned with the catholic faith via other priests and bishops. Fr. Pavone helps me hang on to the Catholic faith as I cry about how the magisterium has let me down.
Thank you Fr. Pavone, great teaching for us, wonderful homily!! - Socorro
Very good scripture Father Frank very informational. Thank you God bless you. - Doreen

Frank’s beautiful and meaningful homilies are a daily source of hope for all who are experiencing weariness during these very difficult times in our nation. Sending my deepest gratitude for being renewed each day by joining the 10 a.m. mass. Love, Jacqueline

Father Frank and the Ministry of Priests for Life has been an incredible gift to me and many others as we navigate (with Christ's) through these very uncertain times. My mother mentioned Father Frank and his Pro Life ministry to me around 15 yrs ago. Mom was a beautiful example of Christ and was very active in her parish pro life ministry...  She was faithful in this ministry up until cancer took her life. Unfortunately, I never bothered to look up Father Frank. The day after the 2020 election I received a Facebook post from Diamond and Silk that promoted a nighttime prayer featuring Dr. Alveda King and Father Pavone. This was definitely a timely gift from God that I needed.  I have been sharing many of the daily masses and other ministry programs with many of my family and friends. Many appreciate and are blessed by your ministry… Praying for Gods hand of protection and supporting your life giving Christ centered ministry. Thank you. - Timothy


Thank you Father Frank. For this beautiful homily. That's bring us closer to our father Jesus christ.. - Connie

Dear Father Pavone and all priests for life, I join you from the north east of England, almost daily for the Rosary. I particularly enjoy Holy Hour and the Sorrowful mysteries and the wonderful and meaningful commentary .... The deep and thoughtful commentary enables me to remain focussed and I really feel like I’m ‘with’ Christ in his sufferings.  Each night I trace back to this particular Holy Hour and place all my concerns with the Lord. God is certainly working overtime in the USA re your Pro life mission thank to the most unlikely person in Donald Trump – but then that’s how God works. - Thank you and God Bless you all so much - Geraldine   

 


Hello Fr. Pavone, I have followed a couple of your presentation on youtube which have really helped strengthening my pro-life views. - Joseph


Dear Father Frank:

Thank you for your tireless work on behalf of the unborn, the disenfranchised, those who are outcasts or disabled or rejected, lonely, sick, depressed! You are a gifted leader. Thank you for your service to our President, serving on his ProLife Team! We are all the better for the efforts of those members and for the Catholics for Trump group. 

The nation and our President and Vice President need our prayers, help and support now more than ever. You letter is “Right on!” You see through the smokescreen to the reality of what has happened, is happening and what needs to be done. You have my full support in separating the wheat from the chaff, the legal from the illegal, the legitimate from the illegitimate, the Fake News and Lies from The Truth, the Evil from the Good. Thank God for you and  your colleagues/teammates,including the wonderful Dr.Alveda King (it must get lonely at times), and thank God for this Trump-Pence administration. The Deep State, Swamp and MSM have been an unending obstacle course for our President, yet he soldiers on, with global, national and more quiet locally-impacting achievements that are often ignored or dismissed by these enemies. He has courage, strength and endurance plus tenacity that can only come from God Himself. 

The prayer you composed is beautiful and powerful. My plan is to pray it often. I have watched you, off and on, for years on EWTN; however, with this election cycle, I really became a bit of a “groupie.” I looked forward to tuning in on RSBN in recent weeks for the Trump rallies, as so many did. I have been moved by the evangelization of you, Dr. King, Rev. Franklin Graham, Pastor Robert Jeffress, Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sr. Dierdre “Dede” Byrne, P.O.S.C., M.D. and by the newest SCOTUS Justice Amy Coney Barrett....

... I am willing to fight for this President’s [Trump] Administration and for Life, as this, I believe is precisely what Our Lord, Jesus Christ, expects of us! Thank you for being an example for us to follow! May God continue to bless, protect and guide you and your ministry, your “team(s)”, our President and Vice President, all of your dear ones, your “entourages”, our great nation, the defenseless least among us, and people of Good Will everywhere. Respectfully and with love and prayers, - Maureen


God bless you Fr. Frank. You are an absolute gem, a true treasure of the Church. May Mary keep you very safe in Her Immaculate Heart and under Her Mantle of Protection.  (I will be tuning in nightly (as often as possible) to hear your inspiring, powerful, insightful and comforting words of Truth.  May God bless you now and forever more.)

Happy Birthday Father! May the Lord bless you and Holy Queen Mother Mary guide you. We so much appreciate and give thanks for your ministry and teaching. Your homilies during daily Mass are truly inspired and essential catechesis to the faithful. In every era there is someone provided by GOD who stands out and guides the faithful. During these exceptionally trying times, you are the leader of all Catholics and Christians. We give thanks to GOD for His gift of you to us. Praised be JESUS! - Robert and Cisca


Dear Father Pavone, My twin sister, Rev. Diane ... and I are ordained Lutheran ministers in the North American Lutheran Church and Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ. Both very Pro-Life. We love and enjoy your blessed programming so very much! In our small way the Lord has used us and our family church. We have always had such a strong love of the unborn. Several things in our life had touched us so deeply for the unborn...My sister and I love the Lord and His precious Mother so much and are glad we can be of assistance in our Lord's work to save those precious little unborn babies. Our older brother is an ordained Lutheran minister and loves the unborn too. Our cousin, Father Michael .... is a Catholic priest who loves the unborn too. Again, we love you and your messages! Pastors Donna and Diane. P. S. M.A.G.A. We love President Trump too! 



Please be assured that you and your ministry are in my prayers. May our good and gracious God bless you with many years of peace and happiness.
-- Most Rev. Alex J. Brunett, Archbishop of Seattle

Be assured of my prayers for God’s continued blessings on your important apostolate.

[Regarding the Evangelium Vitae Study Guide] – I find the reflections and discussion questions especially helpful. They offer a good overview of this most important encyclical, and they help us to incorporate its content and spirit into our personal lives. Thank you again for providing this spiritual guide to the encyclical. May we continue to work toward building a culture wherein all human life is cherished and protected from conception until natural death.
-- Most Rev Francis Kane, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, Episcopal Vicar of Vicariate II

Wishing you well in your undertaking, Father Pavone, I am Sincerely in the Lord,
-- Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark

Thank you for sending me copies of your recently published study guide for Evangelium Vitae and your reflection on the death of Terri Schiavo. I am especially grateful for the study guide. It is simple and concise and should prove to be a renewed invitation to God's people to immerse themselves again, or perhaps for the first time, in Pope John Paul II's magnificent encyclical on the sanctity of life. I am impressed by the format of study/discussion and application to one's personal life. I hope that this little book will receive the wide distribution that it deserves. Thank you for the wonderful job that you have done. Assuring you of my prayers for you and your community, I am Fraternally yours in Christ,

Your brother in Christ and Mary,
-- Most Reverend Michael D. Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop of San Angelo

Thank you for your … study guide for Evangelium Vitae. My heartfelt congratulations to you and your pastoral team for preparing this study guide to accompany Pope John Paul II's encyclical, The Gospel of Life! What a marvelous tool to help our people absorb the crucial message of this important document! I'm delighted that the study guide can be used by an individual or in a group to glean the vibrant message of the Gospel of Life. I was also quite moved by the compelling message of your leaflet, Terri Schiavo's Final Hours. Your comment about fresh water for the flowers at her bedside but not for Terri herself highlighted the hypocrisy of a culture that drains the gnat while swallowing the camel. May the Lord continue to bless all that you do to advance the cause of life! Fraternally yours in the Lord,
-- Most Reverend Victor Galeone, Bishop of St. Augustine

Thank you for the Evangelium Vitae study guide you sent me. Thank you also for sharing your reflections on Terri Schiavo's death.

May Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, grant you peace and joy.

Congratulations Fr. Frank on your silver anniversary to the priesthood. My prayers are with you as you celebrate and continue as a faithful servant of Our Lord.

I commend you for the humble way you submitted to his authority until everything was worked out. My prayers and continued support are with you.

We have been educated and motivated by you to do whatever we can to save unborn babies.

Martin and Ginny, CA
Thank you for all your hard work on behalf of all the unborn babies. At this point in my life, I am not able to be out there fighting the fight as much as I would like, so I am very appreciative of all the time and energy you devote to protecting the unborn and turning the hearts of America and the world against this evil. Congratulations on 25 years of the priesthood!!! How lucky we are to have you!!! Wishing you the best!

Darla, IL
Congratulations on your dual anniversary celebration. My husband and I have been a supporter since the beginning of your ministry.

We have assisted at your speaking engagements and shared your resources with so many. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication and love for the unborn. Thank you for helping the faithful in our work in our own neighborhoods. Thank you for being an example to the clergy. May God richly bless you in your future, keep you healthy and strong and may his Blessed Mother bring you comfort and peace.

Custodio Congratulations,
Fr. Pavone! From Spain, your priest brothers.

Sonia, IN
10 years ago I tuned in EWTN TV for the first time, and there were you and Janet interviewing an abortion survivor. I was crying while listening to her story, and ever since have given my heart to the pro-life movement and to EWTN. Both have strengthened my faith and my family. I love you and I will always keep you in my prayers.

Andrea
As Catholics, we realize that the times we live in will continue to haunt our consciences, that it would be more difficult as the days go by to stand and defend our faith. And yet God has provided us with wonderful priests and mentors who shine out like beacon lights in this world of darkness. You have been chosen by God to lead this noble mission against abortion, and I pray that you and others who are joined in this fight be blessed with the strength and courage to keep going in accordance with God's will. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

Thomas, MI
When I worked at Camp Hope and Compassion to help with the clean up after hurricane Katrina, we stayed on the grounds of St. Anne's catholic church in Lizana, Mississippi and had tee shirts with the following quotation from Mother Theresa on them: "I am but a pencil in the hand of God" God's message about stopping the killing of these living human beings (yes, the supreme court has admitted that they are living human beings) need to be written and trumpeted everywhere. You are the lead pencil, so keep it up. Congratulations on your silver jubilee.

Marie Teresa, MD
This is to thank you for your tireless and cheerful giving that has saved so many thousands of the unborn, raised awareness in the ecclesiastical community and energized the entire pro-life movement. This is to thank you for being my spiritual father and mentor in the theology of life.

Pastor George, TN (Presbyterian Church)
Grace, peace, and joy. Thank you for your faithfulness across all the years and all the miles. You are a deep encouragement to all of us who name the name of Christ and who stand for justice for every life God has given breath. It is my persistent prayer that as you continue to stand for the unborn you will be able to rest in His provision, trust in His providence, walk in His mercy, remain in His love, and rely on His strength. Standfast.

Claire, IL
Thank you, Fr. Pavone! Thank you for being a priest and thank you for your great work for us all in the fight against abortion. I don't know where we'd be without you!

Fr. Stephen, Rome
Your dedication, zeal and constancy are an inspiration to all who have felt the call to live and work for the Kingdom of God. Don't let up. May God bless you efforts with a renewed respect for life--in the United States and in the World.

Marie, FL
Just a quick note to thank you for being my Champion for all the wonderful work you do in support of LIFE! Your guidance, teachings, and your being "out there" on the front lines, has been an inspiration to me.

Ellen, CA
You are a true saint among us (although you do nudge us a lot!) You are a shining example that all priests and deacons should follow. Don't get discouraged. There are a lot of us standing outside abortion clinics and praying for you.

Reuben, WA
…how badly we need men of God as yourself to be a beam of light in the heavy clouds of dark that surround us. But, you have been chosen for this, and for this we are all grateful for your courage, strength, moral fiber and obedience to the directives from the Lord Jesus himself. Know that what you do is of UTMOST IMPORTANCE, not just for America but for the whole world. You will be richly blessed by the Father for what you do and I count it a privilege to support you in all that you do for the beautiful God-created babies of our land.

Jeannene, CA
You are truly an inspiration to so many people and a true friend to all unborn children. I dread to think of how many more babies would not be alive today if not for your undying love for them. You are a living saint among us. I send you my prayers and love on this your special day.

Laura, MD
It is hard to imagine what the pro-life landscape would look like if you had done what I and countless other people have done, which is - put God's call to action on hold. I am grateful for all the pro-life leaders who have been a light to shine the way for me, especially you, Father Frank, because your represent Christ on earth. You embody the voice I hear in my heart and soul. You give dimension to the Holy Spirit and I pray you will always be filled with His graces and gifts.

Mary, FL
Congratulations on your Silver Jubilee! You have been an inspiration to me in my continuing Pro-Life work since I met you in Orlando some years ago.

Christina, CA
This is a very important celebration for all Pro-life people: the 20th anniversary of one of our greatest champions accepting the challenge of ending abortion! Thank you, Father Frank, for every tireless sacrifice you give in the name of the unborn. Your fellow Catholics and Protestants are with you, and we support you fully. God will indeed reward you abundantly when at last our task is complete and abortion is not only illegal, but recognized universally as immoral and unacceptable. Congratulations, Father Frank, and keep fighting the good fight, as we fight alongside you for God's children.

Connie, NE
Thank you again for coming in person to Hastings, NE to be our main speaker at our Respect Life Banquet on May 1 three years ago for South Central NE Right to Life. Your talk was so down to earth and very inspiring to all of us in this pro-life work. We were encouraged to continue on because of your trust that the victory is already won, by Jesus Christ. We just have to continue being His hands and feet. Since you continue on like the energizer bunny, it gives us energy to so, too.

Anora, MI
Our Lord has given you a tremendous task of being the one to lead the way to protect and defend the life our unborn babies and every situation that threatens our God-given right to Life. He has chosen the perfect champion to do that and I personally want to thank for taking the lead. I want you to know that I have and will be praying for your success and for your protection from the evil in this world. I will continue to support Priests for Life as much as I can.

Cheryl, OH

Antonette, NY
Dear Father Frank: You are a champion for life! Thank you for never giving up the quest to keep the fight going for the unborn; for being the VOICE for the "voiceless". You, Father Frank, are God's vessel, his hands and voice for such a time as this impacting today's society showing all that the culture of death will not prevail. As Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so eloquently stated....."We Shall Overcome" and by God's mercy and by his gift of you being at the forefront for this crusade, We Shall Overcome and will be victorious. Thank you Father Frank! God Bless you!

Russell, NC
Dear Father Pavone, As on Obstetrician delivering several hundred babies per year, I am fortunate to see the 'gift of life' come into being on a regular basis. I see each baby as a special gift from our Creator. Please continue your much appreciated work to protect the unborn. Congratulations on your anniversary and I really appreciate a priest who speaks out firmly on the issue of abortion.

Judy, CO
Thank you so very much for your many years of work and devotion to the unborn and their parents. So many of us look to Priests for Life as well as our local parish and diocese to keep us praying and working to end abortion.

Andre, WI
Congratulations Fr. Pavone on the 25th anniversary of your ordination and the tremendous success of your apostolate in defense of life! God Bless your continued efforts, and thank you for your inspiration to myself and countless other elected officials to stand in the gap for our preborn brothers and sisters!

Maureen, MO
What a wonderful gift to our church and to our country that you have been here for us all of these 25 years! We would like to thank you for saying yes to God's calling to the priesthood! How generous a servant you have been. We would like to thank you also for your bold and unwavering leadership in the pro-life movement. You seem to have such boundless energy and surely you are fueled by the Holy Spirit himself acting through you. We were blessed to have been able to hear you speak in person at our St. Louis Respect Life Convention a few years ago, and we were so impressed at your down-to-earth manner and your deep faith. You, like all the saints, make time to pray and stay close to the Lord and then jam your days full of unselfish service. What a great role model for us and our kids you are! Showers of blessings upon you, love, Maureen

Vickey, TX
Congratulations! Because of you I became involved in the pro life work and went on to become [a] Respect Life Director. You have been by far the most influential person in my life and I will be eternally grateful!

Mary, MN
Our nation has been blessed more than we can know (or possibly deserve) from your “Yes” to God’s call. Thank you for your strength and commitment.

Fr. Matthew, NE
Thanks for your exceptional leadership in the pro-life movement and the practical assistance offered to priests and parishes worldwide. I am honored to count you among my long-time friends. Keep up the great work.
Congratulations and Happy Silver Anniversary!
God bless.

Joseph, IL In one of the first notes I wrote to you, I declared you “my hero” and since then I must reiterate this at least 100 times over. I do not know of anyone within the Catholic Church or otherwise who has done more for this cause which I feel is the most important cause on earth. How great it must feel to know you have saved so many lives. You have confronted many politicians/and awakened them to the horror of what that they have they have not worked against. You have overcome controversy for the cause within our own church.
John and Nora, NJ
Your courageous example and faithful witness has inspired us to take heart and stand for life and stand for Christ. God bless you today and always; for we thank him every time we think of you.

Anthony & Angela, ND
You are a true gift to the Pro Life work in this country. I marvel at your joyful demeanor and the positive presence of your words.
Thank you!

Belinda Ann, TX You inspired me to get actively involved in pro-life work as a Crisis pregnancy counselor and prayer partner outside abortion mills for 12 years now. The Holy Spirit spoke to me through you!

You have inspired, encouraged and often enough prompted into action your brother priests and together with them and through them countless others in behalf of the precious gift of life. The holy spirit must surely have given you his gifts of courage and perseverance through the years like wind blown into a boat’s sails, as Pope Benedict XVII put it, for you to carry on this very special ministry. May the celebration of your priestly life, service and devotion to Jesus, son of God and son of Mary be a source of great joy for you and for all your many friends and supporters who join for this special occasion.
Fraternally yours in Christ,

Dear Father Frank:

My sincere congratulations to you on this festive occasion, as you celebrate your 20th anniversary as a Priest and your 15th anniversary as director of Priests For Life. There are only two issues facing the human race: LIFE and THE QUALITY OF LIFE. World leaders choose quality of life and ignore life itself. You have always been a “beacon of hope” you have always CHOSEN LIFE, a Gift for God. Even Shakespeare said, “ To be, or not to be, that is the question.” Leaders of governments can offer citizens a better quality of life, but deny LIFE to the most innocent, helpless citizens, the unborn. They miss the mark. In the book of Deuteronomy, God said, “CHOOSE LIFE” Jesus said, “ I have come that you may have LIFE and have it to the full.” You and leaders of pro-life movements throughout the country have examined the issues of our time and have chosen "the better part.” “CHOOSE LIFE.” Commending you to Mary, the mother of Jesus and the mother of priests,
I remain,

Your friend, Most Reverend Andrew J. McDonald, Bishop Emeritus of Little Rock, AR

I have received your letter of September 2nd in which you ask for comments concerning the noble ministry of Father Frank Pavone – a Priests For Life. I have never been given an easier task...

Dear Father Pavone, I write to express my congratulations and good wishes on your 20th anniversary as a priest. .. I wish to take the opportunity to express my admiration and gratitude for your exemplary priestly ministry at the service of the Gospel of Life. Be assured of my prayers asking the Lord to give you and your ministry many blessings and graces in the years ahead. May our blessed Mother, Santa Maria de Guadalupe, look kindly upon you and protect you under the mantle of her maternal care.
-- Fraternally, Most Reverend Jaime Soto, Coadjutor Bishop of Sacramento, CA

What a great joy it is in our church for Fr. Frank Pavone to be celebrating these two very special anniversaries this year. Fr.

-- Most Reverend Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C., Bishop of Peoria, IL

-- Most Reverend Fabian W. Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln, NE

Dear Father Pavone, I wish to extend to you my sincere congratulations on your 15th anniversary as the National Director of Priests For Life and also your 20th anniversary as a Priest.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
-- Most Reverend Arthur J. Serratelli, Bishop of Patterson, NJ

Dear Father Pavone, I write to offer my prayerful best wishes upon the upcoming celebration of your 15th anniversary as Director of Priests For Life and your 20th anniversary of ordination of the priesthood.

Dear Father Pavone: This opportunity is taken to wish you – ad multos annos! I extend to you the assurances of my continued consideration, as well as my prayers.
-- Sincerely yours in Christ,
-- Most Reverend Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of Venice, FL

Dear Father Pavone, It is a privilege to join with your family and many friends to extend my best wishes and promised prayers on the joyous occasion of your 15th anniversary as Director of Priests For Life and your 20th anniversary to the priesthood. Your exemplary leadership and dedication to Priests For Life during these past fifteen years has brought the value of human life to the forefront especially in defense of the unborn and spiritual healing of those who suffer anguish as a result of abortion. Since implementing the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat in September 2006, the diocese of Lexington has blessed to help nineteen post abortive women and men deal with the grief and tragic results of abortion. By means of this distinctive ministry, participants have experienced a renewal of life by forgiveness and the healing power of God's love. May this wonderful milestone in your life bring you many more years abundant in grace, joy, and good health and may God grant you many more years in his service. With assurance of my continuing prayers for you, I am Sincerely yours in Christ,

With cordial good wishes, I remain Sincerely yours in Christ,
-- Most Reverend Francis Kane, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, IL

Dear Frank, Your presence in this culture of death gives all of us hope and we continue the struggle to eliminate the evil of abortion from the American scene. …Your message two years ago at the feast in little Italy was a message that still rings in the hearts of the parish. …. Congratulations on your jubilee in the priestly ministry. You have been a strong advocate for the unborn for many years. I have every confidence that our Lord will continue speaking through your ministry to bring an end to this evil of abortion. May God continue to bless your efforts and those of your community. Peace! Fraternally yours in Christ,
-- Most Reverend Roger W. Gries, O.S.B., Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland

Dear Father Pavone, Congratulations and fraternal best wishes on your 15 years of service to the Church and the world on behalf of the unborn. I personally have been inspired and enriched by your many talks and writings, and I know many others who feel the same. Thank you Father Pavone, for your courageous and much needed ministry. Please know not only of my admiration for you, but also of my daily prayers for your great work. In God’s time and by his grace, life will be victorious. All the best to you, and may God bless you abundantly. Fraternally yours in Christ,

"I was impressed with the contents of this work. [The Contraception of Grief] I am grateful to you and the members of your organization for proclaiming the truth in love."
-- Most Reverend John C. Nienstedt, Bishop of New Ulm

"[This publication-The Contraception of Grief] came at a providential time as we seek to develop further the means to witness to the sanctity of life."
-- Most Reverend David R. Choby, Bishop of Nashville

"This book [The Contraception of Grief] captures the urgency of the situation and makes it perfectly clear why responding to families is such an urgent pastoral need."
-- Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of Milwaukee

“I am very pleased to have received a copy of The Contraception of Grief, a booklet which will educate and counsel many about the hidden effects of abortifacient contraceptives. All of us in the Church are in need of such an education. Many are becoming enlightened about the logical connection between the advent of widespread acceptance of contraception and legalized abortion; yet, many are unaware of the direct attack on life made daily in the silence of the womb by contraceptives such as the Pill. It is my hope that this worthy effort by Janet Morana and Dr. Theresa and Kevin Burke will be part of the great conversion of heart and mind so needed on this topic. As shepherd of the flock of the Diocese of Phoenix, I fully endorse this work.”
-- Most Reverend Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix

"I certainly see this book [The Contraception of Grief] as another great contribution to the entire pro-life movement, agreeing most heartily with Cardinal Martino on the value of such a book being on all college campuses and Newman Centers. May the distribution of this book be wide-spread and helpful in understanding gratefully the gift of life and openness to this gift in marriage."
-- Most Reverend Fabian W. Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln

"This truly is a wonderful book. [The Contraception of Grief] It should be available in the Newman Centers on every college campus...In this book, The Contraception of Grief, the authors take the reader through the various steps necessary for healing. They give the facts, tell of the effects, share the stories and provide the comfort and courage needed to find a way out of the darkness of loss and despair. This is not simply an anti-abortion or anti-contraception book. This is a book that tells the truth about the real pain suffered by real people as they struggle toward healing amidst a society and culture that has gone awry. It is a book about hope, forgiveness and selfless love."
-- His Eminence Renato Raffaele Cardinal Martino, President, The Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace

I had the privilege of participating in a Rachel's Vineyard Retreat several years ago. The power of the experience continues to have an impact upon me. The women who came to the Retreat did not necessarily connect their various continued life traumas to their respective abortions but they had tried every other kind of therapy and something in their lives was still, ‘not right’. The book, Forbidden Grief by Theresa Burke talks about the various manifestations of this unresolved grief. Many of the signs were clearly evident in the small group of women gathered at the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat; disrupted marital relationships, alcoholism, drug addiction, eating disorders, sleeplessness, nightmares, flashbacks, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, compulsive shopping, hopelessness, extreme shame and guilt. The ‘lie’ of the abortion industry that these problems could not possibly be connected to a past abortion keeps many women from probing and understanding the root of their various debilities. Now Kevin Burke has written an important 'sequel' titled, Sharing the Heart of Christ - For Clergy, Counselors and Laity in Post Abortion Ministry which provides an assurance of hope for genuine healing and peace for those afflicted with many manifestations of unresolved post-abortive guilt, grief and shame. This work helps us further understand the nature of the abortion trauma, the reason for its persistence and the possibility of healing. It is a book filled with hope. Here we learn how the healing power of God's grace coupled with sound psychiatric principles can and does, in the midst of a Rachel's Vineyard Retreat, produce an abundant harvest of healing and peace.
May God bless and reward your good work.
+Robert F. Vasa, Bishop


In Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting it, Father Frank Pavone sends a clear and courageous message to all who support the sanctity of life: simply put, to be heard and not remain silent believers. Silence always helps the oppressor, Never the Victim. .... Ending abortion, making it unthinkable, should certainly be a major tenet as we begin the 21st century.

- Bishop Edward U. Kmiec, Bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo, NY

Father Pavone has served the cause of human dignity with extraordinary dedication for years. His new book Prolife Reflections for Every Day is a beautiful and rewarding way to remind ourselves of the sanctity of life on a daily basis. I highly recommend it. A copy should be in every Catholic home – and well used by all.

- Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Denver

Dear Father Pavone, Thank you for the gift of your beautiful new devotional book, Pro-life Reflections for Every Day. I am happy to endorse this book for distribution in the Diocese of Birmingham. May God reward you for the dedicated work you do for the lives of the unborn. Thank you for your faithful and constant service and commitment to the pro-life movement. Your efforts are invaluable and give hope to all those who are striving to advance the Culture of Life. - Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Rev. Robert J. Baker, Bishop of Birmingham, AL
Dear Fr. Pavone, The volume [Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day] is nicely put together, a comfortable size to carry as a pocket prayer book. The pages are attractively printed, and the reading brief enough to encourage commitment to the Culture of Life is commendable. – Bishop Howard James Hubbard, Bishop of Albany, NY
Dear Father Pavone,
This can certainly be for all praying pro-lifers, enlightening them with fresh thoughts and strengthening them with the power of prayer said daily.

- Bishop David Bernard Thompson,
Bishop Emeritus of Charleston, SC

Dear Father Pavone,
I am confident that all those who use this resource [Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day] will find the reflections and prayers to be spiritually-enriching and assist them on a daily basis with their pro-life commitment.

- Sincerely yours in Jesus, Most Rev. Joseph M. McFadden, Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia

Dear Father Pavone, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day is a very attractive and effective little resource that will be a great assistance to all involved in the respect life ministry. - Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of Providence
Dear Father Pavone, With gratitude, I accept the copy of the Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day. It is an important idea which we as priests and holders of the great mystery of God’s Good News must hold as sacred God’s gift of life to mankind. – Bishop Glen John Provost, Bishop of Lake Charles
Dear Father Pavone, I think that it is essential for this valuable devotional book [Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day] to receive as widespread a distribution as possible... I believe that the simple and daily meditations which your book presents may help enormously in putting Catholics back as the ones most recognizable in society for their pro-life activities. - Fraternally in Our Lord, Bishop Joseph Francis Martino, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton, PA
Dear Fr. Pavone, Thank you for the copy of Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day. I think it will be an excellent resource for my daily prayer and reflection. - Bishop Donald Joseph Kettler, Bishop of Fairbanks, AK

Dear Father Pavone,
Your new book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, is a wonderful way to remind people of the need to defend the sanctity of human life in all its stages from conception to natural death. Many thanks for sending it as well as for all the ways you and Priests for Life “assist God’s people to proclaim, celebrate and serve the Gospel of Life.”

- Most Reverend David A. Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh

Dear Fr. Pavone,

- Sincerely in Christ, Bishop Anthony Basil Taylor,
Bishop of Little Rock, AR

Father Frank Pavone,
I believe [Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day] is a fine book to help us each day to keep a good perspective on the gift of Life. I especially enjoy the positive attitude toward our Faith and God's great gifts to us. I pray that God will continue to bless your important work and give peace and comfort.
- Sincerely in Christ,
Bishop Anthony Michael Milone, Bishop Emeritus of Great Falls-Billings, MT

Congratulations to you on your accomplishments. I pray that your insights which motivate all people to save the lives of millions of unborn infants. You are remembered in all of my prayers every day.
-- Bishops Joseph Howze, Bishop Emeritus of Biloxi, MS

Father Frank Pavone has been a consistent and strong leader in the pro-life movement for many years, even in the face of the many obstacles which we faces, he has remained steadfast and clear of vision. This new book reminds us that abortion is not simply about a social problem, it is about relationships. People are involved. The person of the unborn. The persons of the mother and father. Person of those who run abortion mills and perform or participate in abortions. As well as those of us who demonstrate and teach against this tremendous evil which is being permitted by our government at various levels. This thoughtful book will help many to recognize the various aspects of the evil which is encroaching upon us. And, it does this from a very positive vantage point, i.e. that we are not just fighting abortion; we plan, with God’s help, to eliminate it.
-- Archbishop John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark

Thank you for addressing this critical issue and for all that you do to promote a respect for all human life from the moment of conception to the point of natural death.
-- Most Reverend David A. Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh, PA

I commend you for your courageous efforts for the cause of life. And I am happy to provide a few words of commendation for your book and your continuous, persistent labors of love for the unborn: “The Right-to Life of the Innocent Unborn is the premier civil rights issues of our time, and Father Pavone stands as one of the principal heralds of this important movement. His book Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting it, is a clarion call for coordinated and consistent efforts to end abortion. I recommend this book highly for those who want to learn more about the why’s and how’s of supporting pro-life efforts and desire to help reverse the lamentable Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973.” Thank you, Father Pavone, for this very helpful and very readable book!
-- Most Reverend Robert J. Baker, S.T.D., Bishop of Birmingham, AL

The book is indeed and important resource in promoting a deeper understanding of the need for all people to work for the protection of all human life, especially at its earliest and most vulnerable stage. This book also comes at an important time in our history, when the value of life is denigrated at all levels of society. As people who recognize the image and likeness of God in every human life, we must as the church work to protect those whose voice is ignored and whose identity is disregarded. I am confident that your words and your books will help support that work, and through your efforts and your leadership, we will indeed come closer to the goal of a nation that protects all people and all life from the moment of conception to natural death. I commend you for the fine work you are doing in prompting the pro-life movement, both at a local and at a national level, and I hope that through this book and our shared ministry of preaching the Gospel of Life, more people will actively join the cause and become activists in the pro-life struggle. Thank you again for the gift of this book, and I wish you continued success in contributing to a world where the protection of all life remains our goal.
-- Most Reverend Arthur J. Serratelli, S.T.D., S.S.L., D.D., Bishop of Paterson, NJ

Father Pavone’s book, Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting It, gives a very informative pro-life summary of the prayerful and pastoral ways of dealing with all the critical issues that are connected to the evil of abortion.
-- Bishop Michael Pfeifer, O.M.I. of San Angelo, TX

I am happy to endorse your work and, in particular, this new book. …A critical challenge for us today is transforming a culture of death into a culture of life. In his thoughtful book essays, Fr. Frank Pavone offers us a very helpful and wide-ranging set of essays on promoting life in our contemporary society. The book: Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting It, is both encouraging and challenging for all of us who are concerned about respect for human life in American society.
-- Most Reverend Francis Kane, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago

Your Book will be a special blessing for all those committed to the pro-life movement, giving us much food for thought, insights from experiences over the recent decades, and an agenda with concrete ideas and suggestions for the future.
-- Adam Cardinal Maida, Archbishop of Detroit

Fr. Pavone’s new book helps us to strengthen our convictions with clear teaching and compelling motivation.
-- Most Reverend Anthony M. Pilla, Bishop Emeritus of Cleveland

Your book “Ending Abortion” is like dew on the parched landscape in America. It will educate and encourage all who read it to continue the battle for life with renewed vigor.
With kindest personal regards, I am.
Most Rev. James C. Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton

[Bishop Fabian Wendelin Bruskewitz] is happy to endorse the book, which has something to inspire anyone who reads it. All aspects of the abortions issue are addressed in these powerful and precise essays. This book is to provide a boost of vitality to those who love and defend innocent life.
-- Rev. Andrew Menke, Vice Chancellor

I remain Sincerely yours in Christ,
Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua,
Archbishop Emeritus of Philadelphia

Dear Father Pavone, I am away from the archdiocese at the present time, but I wanted to respond to your recent mailing and the copy of "Pro-life Reflections for Every Day". This booklet is a wonderful aid to people who are serious about support for human life, especially beginning human life that is so precious to the Lord. I am happy to endorse your work for the People of God in this country. Most Reverend Elden F. Curtiss, Archbishop Emeritus of Omaha

Fr. Frank, It was my great pleasure to have spoken to you at the West Coast Walk for Life... I support totally your work and the efforts of Priests for Life to end this evil of abortion in our land and the world.  Your letter to the bishops included everything I have felt for years. - Fr. Macklin

Dear Father Frank Pavone and Mrs. Janet Morana, I would just like to thank all the support given to the seminarian Fernando Paiva during his stay in the US, including his attendance in the Retreat / Conference of August 16 21. I congratulate you for this initiative, which happens to be within the scope of his formation in the Gospel of Life issues, included in his path towards priesthood. My warmest regards, Padre Carlos Rosmaninho, Vice Rector of Seminario Maior de S. Paulo
In the years that I have been ordained I can never remember meeting a newly ordained priest such as Father Frank Pavone who had such a clear cut agenda of his own from the first day he was ordained. He knew exactly what he wished to devote himself to as well as how he would use his time in the priesthood to achieve his goals. Father Pavone wished to become an apologist - a defender of the Faith through his teaching, writing, and preaching. He is a clear and thorough communicator, whether it be in the written or verbal format. Father Pavone's homilies at St. Charles were always a thorough discussion of the topic that he had chosen to discuss on Sunday. During his time at St. Charles Father Pavone conducted Pre-Cana classes for the young people of Staten Island who were preparing for marriage. He conducted in-service Religious Education classes for teachers in the parochial schools of Staten Island. He also taught classes at St. Joseph's Seminary in the formation program for Permanent Deacons. Each Friday evening Father Pavone conducted a scripture class in the rectory. More recently he has been seen on Cable T.V. giving a series of talks on the Catholic Faith. He has published a newsletter which he sends to over 1200 people all over the country. On the first Sunday of each month Father Pavone prepared an informative insert for the bulletin dealing with an issue of faith or morals. Obviously, Father Pavone is an individual of tremendous capacity. He is highly organized in the use of his time, otherwise he would not have been able to carry on so many outside activities. The people of our parish have benefited from Father's compassionate approach to all peni¬tents in the confessional. He has always been most agreeable in making himself available to serve people's needs. St. Charles Parish is a much richer parish because of Father Pavone's presence in it during the past 4V2 years. It is our prayer that this talented young priest will continue to serve God and His Church as The National Director of Priests for Life. May God Bless his efforts! - Msgr. Thomas J. Gaffney
I am indebted to [the] television station EWTN for introducing me to people like you, with strong orthodox convictions and relentless defenders of the Church and the Pope. You have helped me immensely in sustaining and even elevating my faith, hope, and love of God and the Church. Rev. CC, OH
Thank you. Keep up your good work. Fr. JR, MA
It was so good having you here at My Father’s House for our Pro-Life retreat! Everyone raved about the weekend and marveled at your insuring words. Fr. Bill McCarthy, MSA
...I have followed and supported your work since then and admire your zeal and authentic research on the right to Life issues....- Fr. Bill Whelan
Thank you for the bulletin inserts for respect life Sunday. Your generosity and kindness is a true catholic witness and aids us in proclaiming the Gospel. Peace & Prayers, Father Robert Zurlling
Dear Fr. Frank, Please know that as your brother presbyter I am more than proud for your efforts to wake up this very corrupt society in the USA. I am a priest from the ancient Archdiocese of Smyrna, present "Izmir," in Turkey, and very much appreciate your apostolate defending the most precious gift we had received from God Himself: Life. May God bless you and constantly assist you in your ministry and in every single effort for you to teach all that life must be respected. Thank you for writing on sexual abuse, people need to know even more about what that means in the life of a person. Asking your prayers for my health, the reason of my presence in California, I promise to remember you before the Lord. Very fraternally yours in Christ-God and in the Theotokos, Our Lady of Ephesus, fr. Fausto Zelaya
Dear Fr. Pavone, I am a Jesuit scholastic who cares deeply about the issue of abortion and would like to see more and more women and doctors say yes to life and no to abortion. I would like to see Roe Vs. Wade overturned and I would like our country to someday look back in amazement and wonder at what we did to so many innocent unborn children for so many years. So, thank you for your passion and persistence in your work for ending a culture of abortion.
I just wanted to let you know that your e-mail newsletters are very informative and truly expose the great harm done to women and the unborn in the great tragedy of abortion. I wish to continue receiving these newsletters by way of e-mail ... Thank you for all that you do in helping women and the unborn! Sincerely,
-- Fr. Tom

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your organization, Priests For Life, for the generous gift of pro-life literature for our library. All my best wishes for the New Year and to Priests For Life as it continues its excellent work on behalf of the unborn and defenseless. - Rev. Jerome Young, OSB
At a time when our pre born brothers and sisters lost their protection to come into this world free from any danger, at a time when so many in our culture lost perspective, even in the church, here you responded to a call to speak out to begin a process to lay foundation of a civilization of life and love. This is how we were created to be, this, I pray is our future that we must strive somehow to create, You have guided us in light of our gospel and church. I pray that the best in us human beings will emerge to live a consistent ethic of life from the beginning of life to the end. Thank you for your courageous inspirational leadership. - Fr. Jim Heyd
I also encourage you and the work of priests for life. I hope some day the scourge abortion may be limited from our great land.
Your brother in Christ’s priesthood,
Robert James Arenz

It is a pleasure to work with you, Fr. Frank, In the cause of life,In relishing your friendship, And in knowing your steadfast yearning For the truth that sets us free – The Lord Himself!!
Ad multos annos!!

- Denis, O. S. A.

You do a super job in providing materials. We are able to use them here quite often.
- Fr. Mark

Thanks be to God for Father Frank Pavone! A brother, Father Bob Poandl
I am encouraged and inspired by your further explanation about life issue. I have commitment of defending life. I firmly believe that this is our duty. During ten years of my pastoral life, we had seminar, preaching and discussing regarding defending life. But due to lack of sources, we could not do much. I believe you can provide me some sources, such as bulletin, books and news. I will have in touch with you. Looking forward of hearing from you.
May God bless!
Sincerely, Fr. Modu

Dear Father, I wanted to write you and thank you for the wonderful work you are doing. You have the gift of the priesthood but in addition God has called you to lead us priests in life. That comes from God Himself so you have this as a special vocation in addition to your priestly one. Father you are doing great work and I just wanted to write you and let you know how much I appreciate it. - Father Bill Liebert, SVD-Divine Word Residence-Techny, Illinois.
Dear Father:
I want to write to say thank you for doing what others won't. I pray that one day we can say to God, we have fought the good fight, and won.
Rev. Mark Ryan, Wesley UMC, Iron River, MI

I would like to thank Fr. Pavone for inviting me to participate in the webinar. .... It was refreshing and edifying to be connected again to the great work that Priests For Life is doing. I marched right over the office for youth ministry at my parish and handed them a DVD for Silent No More and gave them a pitch to have someone come and speak to the teens and young adults. I am also going to use the liturgy resources right away for the prayers of the faithful. Thank you for all you do to save souls and build up the kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Eric Andersen, Beaverton, OR.

Fr. Pavone's Mass was beautiful and the homily on Hebrews was the best I have heard. Thanks for EWTN-TV. The Mass for the 29th of Jan should be repeated often since it explains the Mass so beautifully. It was true evangelization! Check out that great homily!
-- Fr. Martin, AL

Those of us who met and heard you in Oregon - priests and laity alike - are mighty glad you came our way. I am personally very grateful to have met you and seen you in action. The homily you gave in Salem was one of the finest I’ve ever heard and certainly gave me a high standard to aim for in following your good example.
-- Fr. Liam

I recently copied your letter. I sent it to our Pastor. The very day I gave it to him, he used it as a Homily.
-- LL

Thank you for coming to speak at our parish. I was extremely impressed by the message and you as a person. I would love to join Priests for Life. I also saw you on Mother Angelica, and you were terrific!
-- Fr. Patrick

Fr. Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life gave a stirring, moving, informative and spirit-filled presentation. He is well prepared, well balanced, well informed, and filled with God’s Spirit in the articulation of the Gospel of Life.
-- Fr. Edward

The pastor spoke again. This time he was quoting you. He said, "Last time we were gathered here, I remember Fr. Pavone saying, ‘Imagine we are standing outside a killing center in Montclair,’ and for the first time I realized he’s right. There is a killing center in my own town where I am a pastor."
-- Christopher

Thanks so much for the video tapes and literature you sent me. I have something in every issue of my bulletins on Sunday that has to do with abortion. The "Priests’ For Life Newsletter" is excellent. I use the word "excellent" very deliberately. It really is excellent.
-- Father Thomas

Dear Father Frank: Your newsletter has been a great help to me in my pro-life homilies! Blessings on your super apostolate.
-- Fr. David

I enjoyed the article in Crisis magazine by Frank Pavone. Will use it for future preaching.
-- Fr. John

Dear Fr. Frank, I marvel at your eloquent, convincing, and "no-holds-barred" presentation of pro-life issues and newsletter, and via the EWTN Global Network which I listen to often as I can.
-- Rev. Julian

Dear Father Pavone, during Holy Week, I had a chance to watch EWTN. Although I have contributed to Priests for Life, I had never seen you preach before. I was thrilled! Your talk was the most convincing I have ever heard. And what I found especially powerful was your offer of help before or after an abortion…with a toll free number! God is doing a wonderful work through you. May He continue to bless you and all who work with you. In Gratitude,
-- Fr. Eric, IN

Dear Fr. Pavone, Just a note to tell you how much I've enjoyed your columns in our diocesan [paper]! I loved your "Don't oppose abortion, Stop it!" . . . Right on, Frank! Keep on thinking and writing!
-- Msgr. James, WI

Many thanks for your site. It is a great help when the pupils from the High School come looking for information on abortion and euthanasia. Keep up the brilliant work.
-- Fr. Smith

Fr. Peter, Thanks for the great research. This was just what I was looking for. Keep up the great work! In Christ,
-- Fr. James, KS

"The Priesthood is God's greatest gift to man. Its faithful fulfillment is Man's greatest gift to God". I'm sure that God is delighted with your efforts to save the babies! I admire and bless you.
-- Most Rev. Nicholas, LA

Fr. Frank is always enlightening.
-- Rev. Matthew, PA

Fr. Pavone brought up new thoughts and arguments, plus great clarity and enthusiasm.
-- Rev. Omer, VT

Thanks for being with us for the Pro-Life assembly, you were excellent. You and the Priests for Life movement are a great credit to the church. Fr. Peter, your words inspire because they are backed with conviction. On behalf of the Salesian priests and brothers, the school administration and the pro-life group, we are extremely grateful. Keep up the good work.
-- Fr. Steve

I’m very interested in the work you are doing and find thoroughly exciting the information on your Web page.
-- Fr. Philip, Bogotá Colombia

Thank you for all you do and for all the help you give me to help me save lives.
-- Msgr. J. Peter, CT

Your full-page (NY Times) advertisement was a welcome relief to see. It was a great article and the best of luck to you.
-- Fr. Mark, CT

We are continuing Father’s aggressive Pro-Life Crusade in the Mobile area with a News Conference on Friday at Providence Hospital (Alabama Citizens for Life & Physicians for Life) and had good coverage and quotes in the Mobile press after a great Life-Chain rally and street formation. Additionally, I had three independent sources inform me of priests who are not normally pro-active on life issues - speaking out boldly against Abortion on Sunday...so a PRO-LIFE grassfire is burning in Mobile! Praise God! In the Battle for LIFE
-- Capt. J.D. Smith

Fr. Denis
-- We want to thank you for your powerful homily on the value of all life. Our parishioners needed to hear it and it has had a good effect already.
-- Rev. Daniel, PA

This note is occasioned by the report about your talk at the CCL Convention in Cincinnati recently. I am delighted with it. Through the years I have noticed you do a magnificent job fighting abortion. Bravo!
-- Rev. R. F., IL

Your talk to the deanery has already born some fruit. For the past two years, we have sponsored a pro-life Mass and procession on January 22. Right after your visit, the Santa Fe deanery decided they would sponsor and arrange this annual event. This is an unprecedented level of pro-life involvement for our local priests and I think it will lead to even greater involvement in the future. – Michael, NM
Your homily, your friendly sharing with your brother priests, and your address at the Pro-Life Rally was most inspiring and elicited many favorable comments.
-- Msgr. Leo, NY

Wholeheartedly,
I wish to congratulate your "urgent message" which appeared in the New York Times, July 21st. I am certain that the courageous and clear statement will produce great good, and cause many pro-choice advocates to evaluate their position. Do keep up your magnificent ministry. v
--- Rev. Joseph, GA, Hispanic Apostolate, Archdiocese of Atlanta, GA

Just finished reading the text of Fr. Pavone’s statement to the press last week. It was nothing short of absolutely awesome and awe inspiring!
-- Rev. Joseph

I quickly agreed to go to Washington and join priests from many different states who were to stand on the stage with Fr. Frank Pavone. He was to be the official spokesman. Twenty of us went to the National Press Club representing many parts of the country, including California and Idaho. After Fr. Pavone's presentation there were some very pointed questions such as "How do you explain the polls that state that Catholic women receive abortions in about the same numbers as the rest of the nation?" and "How do you feel being involved in a cause that has brought death and violence to abortion providers?" Fr. Pavone answered the questions with remarkable poise and accuracy. The press conference went on for an entire hour, which, we were told, far exceeds the usual time frame. I found the Conference challenging and stimulating. In my trip to Washington, I found Priests for Life using the media to the hilt. It was done in a friendly way and with no compromise with the truth of the Gospel.
-- Msgr. James, OH

Thank-you for providing quality information to assist in the preparation of homilies during this Respect Life Month & pre-election season!
-- Rev. Brian, MI

Thank you,
my brother Priests for your courage and perseverance! I find your website most helpful in getting out the Gospel of Life. I especially like your bulletin inserts.

--- Fr. Bill

I congratulate Priest for life and Fr. Frank with the Proudly Pro-Life Award. I am very happy and this information I will send around Lithuania for priests and Lithuanian bishops. I believe it will help to establish Priests for Life in Lithuania.
--- Fr. Robertas

I am glad that you exist!
-- Fr. Vasile, Romania

Dear Fr. Pavone, Thank you for the material on your homily pages your website. I downloaded 47 pages of notes last week and found them very helpful in talking about abortion this past weekend. I get your newsletter but this is the first time that I really looked in depth at what you offer. Yours is a very worthwhile and helpful ministry Thanks.
-- Fr. Gregory, TX

Dear Father Pavone, I’m glad to know you and your works. I would like to say thanking God for your generosity to work God’s works continuing on the earth.
-- Rev. Joseph, LA

I appreciate very much your programs on EWTN and your courageous leading of the pro-life movement.
-- Rev. Robert, CO

Fr. Pavone, I have intended to write you for years and tell you what great things God does thru you. Your ability to say the same pro-life message in so many different good ways amazes me and radiates the Holy Spirit at work in you. God prosper you always.
-- Rev. J.J., NC

I have recently read in the EWTN news that a group of pro-abortionists is beginning to attack Fr. Pavone, and actually lying about his record and his involvement with acts of violence! I only wanted to say that all of you are in my prayers, and that I know that a big spiritual battle is being engaged against Priests for Life, and I am willing to help in anyway I can to defend LIFE and the TRUTH! It is obvious that your work is really producing great effects, otherwise the counterattacks from the enemy would not be so vicious! So PLEASE, keep up your great work all for the Greater glory of God, and again if I can be of any assistance, please let me know! Blessings!
-- Bro. Fernando

I thank the good Lord for the work that you people are doing. I am visiting this site for the first time and hope that I will gain from your resources of knowledge.
-- Rev Fr Stan, Nigeria

I am offering this note in affirmation of the principle you articulate that people will not do anything about the carnage of pre-birth human life until they actually see abortion - the dismembered, shredded life in miniature that deserves to lie within the womb in safety yet so terribly, terribly vulnerable to this culture of death that is so all-pervasive in our world today.
-- In Christo frater, Fr. B. J., Australia

Encountering your website gives me an inkling that this is one of what I need at the moment to harness more knowledge on some relevant issues that could help me in my present assignment. I'm now working in one of our big university in metro Manila with a population of 26,000 thousand students. Thanks for your website. More power and God bless you
-- Fr. Rod

Dear Fr. Frank, Please keep up the great work in the Church’s spiritual battle to capture the hearts of all who have fallen to the apathy or unawareness of the extent of the culture of death that pervades our country. I preached on the issue of abortion and the Respect for all life from conception to natural death this past Sunday on Respect for Life Sunday, and told it like it is to the parishes I preached in.
-- Fr. Mike, MI

I would like to congratulate all of you most especially to Fr. Pavone. I always watch your program on cable TV here in the Philippines. I am with you in proclaiming to the world that life is sacred because it comes from God. It is so precious because sent his only begotten Son to purchase it by his blood. More power to all of you there and may God bless you and our mission.
-- Fr. Joenick

I almost forgot to tell Fr. Frank that I have long appreciated his special gift and calling. Thank God someone is in the forefront of this issue.
-- Father Brunet

I am a priest and I congratulate you for your work for life. You are in our prayers. I am a sculptor and I have made a statue of Mary - pregnant. Since September 11, I have published on my web page five messages about abortion.
-- Fr. Leonard, NJ

Your statement on "The Annunciation: Feast for Life" has only just now come to my attention. I thank you for this effort and wish to support it. In the name of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, I would like to "sign" the statement and endorse it.

--Rev. Thomas, PA

I am a Filipino priest living here in Italy. A friend of mine told me to visit this website of yours. I found it very interesting and will really help me to solve some problems about our ministry. Thanks
-- Fr. William

Just new to your website and I found that it is interesting and educational. Keep up the good work.
-- Rev. Bernard, Philippines

I just listened to another of your excellent pro-life homilies on EWTN, the one in which you draw a parallel between abortion and the worship of Diana/Artemis in the ancient world and quote from a book in which an abortionist (in a sermon of all things!) refers to abortion as a "good" and as a "sacrament". The clarity with which you address the abortion issue is both magnificent and inspiring. Keep up the good work! -... I don’t know anyone who is as effective a spokesperson nor as "right on" as you are with regard to every aspect of the pro-life cause. ...Please know that I continue to offer you my prayerful support and very best wishes in the excellent work you are doing.
-- Fr. Phil

I’m an Italian priest. I have visited your web-site. I make you my best congratulations for your web-site. ... Sincerely in Christ
-- Fr. Paolo

Thank you immensely for sending me some of your Newsletters. I really found them enriching and easy to read. In fact, I meet my Assistant Parish Priest and gave him one. He was delighted. I told him to get in touch with you for more information and how he can become a member. I’m also contacting other lay Parishioners who are involved in the pro-life activities here in my parish. ... May our Lady’s Mantle cover you always. Yours in Jesus and Mary,
-- Fr. Paul, Africa

This is for the first time that I am visiting this site. You are doing a great service through this site to the whole Church and to the entire humanity. I am a Catholic religious priest from India belonging to the Congregation "Carmelites of Mary Immaculate", a Congregation founded in Kerala, South India. Let me congratulate you once again for the excellent work you are doing and wish you all the best and God’s abundant Blessings in all your endeavors for the greater glory of God!
-- Rev. Fr. James

I am very glad that you are doing wonderful work for the glory of God. I get all ideas from the internet. I appreciate it very much and your services for the glory of God and the church and our people, especially Faith, Life and Family. Congratulations.
-- Fr. Zacharias

I am a retired Catholic priest and a member of Priests for Life. Much of my inspiration comes from you and your guests on EWTN. The good work you all are doing is deeply appreciated. Thank you!!

I applaud what you do, and you do it well. I use the materials as a homily resource. "Justice and Peace shall kiss!"
-- Fr. Juan

I wish to express my appreciation for all you do. I recently requested and received the lovely package with the video, audios and other materials for priests. I gave it to my pastor, Fr. Joseph... He and I later met to discuss bringing the message to our parish and have agreed to start a Respect Life Committee, of which I will be Chair.
-- BT

Thanks for your [your brochure] "Answering Pro-abortion Politicians." It will be a big help in my work.
-- Fr. Daniel, OK

In desperation my husband asked [our pastor] if he would at least read some material written for priests from Priests for Life. He said that he would. Months later, with no further contact from him, he did preach one pro life homily. I want you to know once again how much we appreciate your work and how it impacted on one church and brought us a sense of hope. To the best of my knowledge, that was the only pro-life homily he ever gave, but we will always be grateful to you for helping him find a way to speak the truth. Sincerely,
-- Bobbie

Dear Fr. Frank, It was indeed a pleasure to have you with us last weekend. The proof of a good speaker/homilist is when the talk is longer than usual and there are hardly any complaints about it. You made quite an impression on the entire parish – we have nothing but positive reviews of your inspiring presentation. We thank you for all the information you brought to [us] in the area of Pro-life. The literature, both in the Church bulletin and at the exit of the Church, has given our parish much to think about and several positive ways to react.
-- Fr. Campion, Fr. Lonergan, Fr. Colton and [the entire] parish family.

Thanks for giving me words for my homilies.
-- Fr. Tim

Fr Frank, as a brother priest, I applaud and encourage you to continue the good work of promoting the Gospel of Life in and through your service to Priests for Life. Thank you for the good word on the progress achieved through prayer and charitable protest, as demonstrated by the recent events in Texas, which also expose the lie of "free choice". Please be assured of my prayers and support. Fraternally in Christ,
-- Fr. Matthew, NC

We priests are so very proud of the work you are doing. Your leadership and guidance in the Pro-Life movement is truly an inspiration to us and for us.
-- Very Rev. E. Michael Camilli, M.S.C.

Priests for Life is a great work of God that will renew you. I was so impressed with Fr. Pavone I wanted to buy the company. Please join us!
-- Fr. Thomas, IL

Thank you so much for your presentation to our Archdiocesan Convocation of Priests in Santa Fe. It was such a blessing to have you in our midst and to hear your words of wisdom on the dignity of life. I am so grateful that you touched upon the philosophical issues as well and the present political situation. I imagine it was not a coincidence that President Bush signed the law on that same day banning partial birth abortions. I am sure that many would have wanted you in Washington that day, but we are grateful that you gave your time to us in Santa Fe. I can only imagine the challenges and difficulties you face in the great ministry of Priests for Life. What I admire in you is that you keep such a positive and joyful spirit despite the many difficulties in promoting life. Thank you for being such a good example to me and to so many priests in never giving up on the Victory already won by Jesus Christ. Asking the Lord's blessings upon you and thanking you one again, I am Yours in Christ,
-- Rev. Bennett J. Voorhies, Chancellor, Archdiocese of Santa Fe

Even more than Fr. Pavone's powerful message, I was deeply impressed with his person. Throughout a rather grueling (and sometimes disorganized) weekend, he kept his patience, focus and sense of humor. He adapted beautifully to the time constraints of our morning Mass schedule and he showed resilience when things did not go as smoothly as hoped. Off-the-wall comments didn't seem faze him or throw him off. He took genuine interest in what locals groups are doing and was anxious to talk about new approaches. We had a good conversation about practical things that could be done on a parish level.
-- Fr. Phil Bloom, Pastor, Holy Family, Seattle

Dear Fr. Frank, Greetings from Minna Diocese Nigeria. I have received a kit from the Priests for Life Association. I am indeed very grateful because the materials are very handy and useful in the fight for Life. We had a meeting for Priests in the Catholic Diocese of Minna and I introduced the Association to them. We are going to hold seminars for Priests and Religious on the need to be Pro Life as Priests. Also last week I started the Students for Life Association in the University here…I used some of your materials from the Priests for Life website…It has been wonderful working with the students and I believe that very soon we will be reaching out to other students in other high institutions of learning in the country. Thank you very much for the encouragement you are giving us through your programmes on EWTN and the materials you sent to us.
-- Yours in Christ, Rev. Fr. Chiedozie, Nigeria

Your newsletter has been a great help to me in my pro-life homilies! Blessings on your super apostolate. – Fr. John, CA The "Priests’ For Life Newsletter" is excellent. I use the word "excellent" very deliberately. It really is excellent.
-- Father Thomas

Dear Fr. Pavone and the Priests for Life organization,
I just want to let you know how much I appreciate the great work you do for the Culture of Life. Your courage is an inspiration for me and my parish respect life committee. You have my prayers and support.
In Christ,
Fr. Greg Menegay, Pastor, St. Mary Magdalene Parish, Diocese of Phoenix

Dear Father Pavone,
We are so grateful to you for blessing us by celebrating mass with us today. Your message reminding us that the darkness of the Culture of Death will not have the last word because Christ lives is a source of encouragement to us all. Your ministry is a great blessing to the whole church, and to us here at Holy Apostles, in particular. We are truly edified by your heroic service to the Church. We deeply appreciate you taking time to be here with us especially due to the time constraints on your schedule in light of the upcoming election. Thank you, Father Pavone for your continuing support of Holy Apostles Seminary. May our Lord and His Blessed Mother abundantly bless you and your ministry.
- Sincerely yours in Christ, Rev. Douglas L. Mosey

Fr. Frank:
I have been an admirer of your commitment to being a clear and eloquent voice in our time speaking in defense of life and for the unborn… The Lord has put the conviction in my heart that this is the issue of our time that I need to devote my time and meager ability to addressing it. I take inspiration from you and on more than one occasion have made your words my own. I am associated with a chapel of perpetual adoration ad you are frequently remembered there at the altar. Fr. Mike Roy

Dear Fr. Frank,
Often, I encounter Priests for Life, in various ways. You are a man of Blessing. So, this word and rejoicing from “an old admirer”.

- Fr. Jeremiah Reen, SDB

Fr. Frank,
Thank you so much for your great example of obedience for me and all of us priests. I pray daily for your Bishop ... and all the Priests For Life and affiliate Ministries. God will use this for good.

- Fr. Frank T. Wilder O.A.R.

Your faithful commitment to the unborn and the Gospel of Life has inspired us, to join you in the mission for the sacredness of life. Thank for proclaiming the Gospel of Life, with priestly conviction, honesty, and love for Almighty God the giver of all life. Blessed Anniversary!
Blessed Assurance! In the tender mercy of our God, Your brother and friend,
- Rev. Fr. James E. ode, OFM, Ph.D, President, National Black Catholic Apostolate for Life And The NBCAL National Board of Consultants

Dear Fr. Frank, God Bless you on your anniversary of ordination. You have been a great blessing to so many of us, giving us a new courage to speak up and speak together for life. May the Lord bless you for many years to come.
- In Christ Jesus, Fr. Mitch Pacwa


It has been my pleasure to accompany Fr. Frank on various occasions to various gatherings in Washington, New York, and Birmingham, and to see how he engages the people with his pro-life message, and how he rallies the leaders to a greater commitment to this cause. .. Alveda and I have welcomed Fr. Frank to many gatherings with our wider family here in Atlanta, both on the occasions of the annual national King observances, at which Fr. Frank is often invited to participate in the program, as well as at a number of family occasions. He is a trusted and valued friend. Moreover, he and his team have been the catalyst for me to share my own pro-life story through their television broadcasts and to issue public statements about how the "Beloved Community," proclaimed by my husband and his brother, must in our day make room for the unborn children. .. Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King
I really enjoyed your homily at the Mass in DC--very encouraging. - Joseph M. Scheidler, Pro-Life Action League
Dear Father Frank and everyone at Priests for Life, THANK YOU for educating people, for taking the risk to do everything to make sure that values and morals were considered in this election. Without Priests for Life, I don’t think we would have had this wonderful outcome for Life. With the victories in the senate, the house and the whitehouse, perhaps we will now be able to overturn Roe V Wade. My prayers stay with you! - Susan Lepak, NFP-Prolife Ministry Coordinator, Archdiocese of Oklahoma City
Thanks again for the true privilege of working with you. I am especially humbled to be chosen for the sacred duty of helping bring meaning to the little ones' lives.... I t is so sobering to be describing their horrible deaths and working to bring this affront to God to an end.- Brian Calhoun, IL
What a wonderful and inspiring evening you provided Jim Buffler and myself (not to mention every other blessed soul that was there) last evening at St. Mary's.... We were so very pleased to be invited on the Agenda, and then to hear and see you in person, really made our day! Our only regret, on our way home, was that we could not find a place to buy ourselves a lottery ticket, with our good fortune running as well as it was last evening. - Ralph J. Heinrich, Associate Board Member of the Society of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, PA
Thank you so much for coming to the annual GRTL Choose Life Convention. We really enjoyed working with you. You were a wonderful addition and a huge asset. God really used you to do the impossible, saving babies’ lives that Satan had doomed to die! Praise the Lord! We hope you will make attending the convention a regular event on your schedule.
I was very moved and inspired by your talks
-- you are so gifted with grace when you speak; with so much conviction, passion and love. Theresa Burke, Foundress, Rachel's Vineyard

Priest for Life Rocks! Thank you so much for your ministry and resources. You are a light shining brightly in the Church. God bless you. DP, Illinois.
Thank you Fr. Pavone for ALL the work you did for the election. Your support for the values that our church teaches is so “on target”. We need more church leaders standing up for LIFE. Praise to our Lord for your ministry. Rhonda Pritts, Respect Life coordinator
Fr. Frank A. Pavone, whom we all know and love as one of the world’s most articulate and tireless voices defending the unborn, will be our honoree, and our principal speaker. - From Laurence Behr
I also cannot express in words how grateful I am for priests for life in general. Your work is God’s work. I am extremely honored to be associated with you through brochures, T.V., radio, and by speaking. I admire the sacrifice each of you makes for the babies. It also brings me great joy to be part of a unified church by working with you. Jesus’ last request to his father while on earth was that the church be unified. I know it is extremely painful to him to see all the factions and disharmony between us Christians. But here are you and I – catholic and protestant-working hand in hand on the grandest, Godliest endeavor of all. As I said, this thought brings me a great deal of joy and satisfaction. Jill L.Stanek
But let me emphasize how pleased it makes me and your many admirers in Presbyterians Pro-Life that you’re wonderful accomplishments for the pro-life cause are being recognized by Steubenville. You deserve it! May God bless you and continue to keep you the humble servant of our blessed Savior that I know you to be. Benjamin E. Sheldon (President-Emeritus, Presbyterians Pro-Life).
Thank you for faithfully joining us annually at our international Week of Prayer of Fasting Prayer. You are truly a gift to this movement and an inspiration to the troops for life. You clearly articulated that truth will convert hearts and minds to life and you motivated us all to promote truth by arming ourselves with “T” ruth through adoration and sacraments. Thank you for utilizing your gifts of the Holy Spirit to promote a “Culture of Life” and inspiring us all to do our utmost for life. We are truly blessed to have you as our servant priests among us defending the sanctity of life. We are confidant that if all man and woman took their Christian vocation and responsibility to promote the Glory of God, the culture of death we exist in would be overturned. Thank you for being a great example for the priesthood and speaking out about our responsibilities as fellow Christians to defend life. Maureen & Ted Flynn (International Week of Prayer and Fasting)
Dear Fr. Frank, Thank you so much for all you do for the pro-life cause!! We cannot tell you how much we appreciate the support of you and your priests. - Patti Logan, Executive Director (Heart to Heart)
Janet, Fr. Frank & Staff, Just a note to let you know that we prayed for all of you at Priests For Life in our Staff meeting today. We so appreciate all that you do to promote a culture of life and pray that God will continue to bless all of your efforts. We are looking forward to seeing you at our conference in April! Yours in life, The Heartbeat Staff
This is why Priests for Life is continually blessed! You have always encouraged others without fear of losing control or credit. Your leadership is a great example to all of us. - Dan Clark, NJ Republican ProLife Coalition
Hello. Deacon Becky Spanos here, one of the founders of National Organization of Episcopalians for Life. I admire so much the work you all did for Terri [Schiavo] and know that the Lord is pleased. .. I continue to pray for her family and for you wonderful Catholic priests. I only wish more of our Episcopal priests were like you!! - Blessings, Becky Spanos
Father Pavone: Congratulations on your brave statements! I wish the entire bulletin had been translated into Spanish! Only the “Useless Advice” article was. In any case, I still sent it to all our affiliates and many other people, asked them for prayers for you and your team and suggested they help in other ways. ..May God continue to inspire and strengthen you...In Jesus and Mary of Guadalupe, Magaly Llaguno
Janet: The March was great. I had occasion to hear some of the [Silent no More] speeches at the Supreme Court. They were very powerful. God Bless you for all you and Priests for Life are doing to expose the truth that abortion kills children and also hurts women and men. - Marie Tasy, Executive Director, New Jersey Right to Life
Thank you and the Priests For Life staff for all the prayers and support for the Wabash Valley Right to Life fund raiser banquet on January 31, 2008. Over 235 Pro-Lifers came out to hear Dr. Alveda King’s presentation of “How Can the Dream Survive?” Thanks again to you and Priests For Life for the continued prayers and support for Life. - Tom McBroom-Vice-Chairman Wabash Valley Right to Life, Inc. Terre Haute, Indiana
To all at priests for life, We knights of the Immaculata are ecstatic about the action and publicity that Father Pavone and Priests for Life are undertaking to educate the faithful and our country about Humanae Vitae and it's significance as the 40th anniversary approaches. Your special website, humanaevitae40.org is terrific, and we especially appreciate the exposition of the abortifacient nature of contraceptives and post abortion syndrome and the emphasis on Priests for Life affiliates, Rachel's Vineyard and Silent No More. You and your vital mission are in our prayers every day at holy mass. Yours in Jesus through Mary, Bud Macfarlane, M.I., Militia Immaculata
.. the organizers and the panel on contraception would love to have Fr. Pavone speak on contraception. The Priests for Life initiative on humanae vitae's 40th anniversary is an extraordinary and holy spirit inspired gift to the church right now, and will have a great impact during and beyond 2008. Father's many talents, especially organized dynamic oral presentations, will be an important contribution to the featured contraception aspect of this years conference. - Bud Macfarlane, M.I., Militia Immaculata
Fr. Pavone was SENSATIONAL at the commencement exercises at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Everyone I talked to commented about how tremendous he was. - Hank Kuzma. University Ambassador
Your hard work, dedication and talent have saved many unborn children. - Darla St. Martin and the Staff of NRTL
Fr. Frank, On behalf of all of us at CLC in Ottawa, I want to thank you so much for speaking at our March for Life banquet. I can tell you that your speech had a tremendous impact on many people. May God continue to bless you & your work for Life. - Aidan Reid, Director of Campaign Life Coalition.
The [Canadian March for Life 2006] Rose Dinner was completely sold out and over 900 participants were treated to an address by Priests for Life President Fr. Frank Pavone, which left many pro-life leaders in awe. Reflecting on Fr. Pavone's address, Aidan Reid, National Affairs Director for Campaign Life told LifeSiteNews.com it was "the most incredible talk I've ever heard."
As busy as you are, we are grateful that you are able to make time to be a guest on Catholic Answers Live. We know our listeners also enjoy the opportunity to call and speak with you about important pro-life matters. Jerry (Catholic Answers)
Fr. Frank, Thank you for joining us in training the next generation of leaders for our legal system and nation. I am continually amazed at what we have been allowed to accomplish through this program. Thank you again for partnering with us- we appreciate you very much. (Alliance Defense Fund)
We are thrilled by the success of The LIFE of the Party Party during the Republican National Convention in New York. We feel that it is critical that the cause of life be prominently represented during the convention, not only to the Delegates and Party officials, but to the media and the general public. And, we also know that, if the Republican National Coalition for Life didn't do it, it wouldn't be done. We also know that your participation and beautiful invocation, created the perfect tone of proper reverence for life and the celebration of our pro-life successes within the Republican Party. We will be forever grateful to you for your assistance that day. Thank you for all that you do and the sacrifices you make for the pro-life cause. If there is ever any way that we can help you, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please accept our deepest gratitude and appreciation. Sincerely, Phyllis Schlafly, National Chairman Colleen Parro, Director Board of Directors
One priest who is considered a liberal and did the closing prayer at the dinner, was so moved by what Fr. Pavone said that he has since become much more pro-life. Thanks
-- Pro-life leader from Massachusetts

Words will never properly express our gratitude to you and all at Priests for Life for all you do to keep the Pro-life movement focused in our country. There is NO ONE who more deserves the "Proudly Pro-Life" Award than you. Thank you for continuing to listen to God's call. Please be assured of my prayers for your health, family and all at Priests for Life. Your sister in Christ Jesus,
-- Kathy DiFiore, Several Sources Foundation

Thank you so much for your truly inspiring message to all of us. I know you gave me some new ideas about how to talk to women who feel abortion is their best and only answer. You are an inspiration to all of us, with your complete determination to get out the message. Sometimes we need to hear such a message, since all of us get tired at times. ... Thanks again for such a memorable evening.
-- Mary Thomas, Allied Women’s Center of San Antonio

On behalf of the executives, staff and chapter leaders of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, I want to thank you for speaking at our luncheon.... We were very honored to have you as the featured speaker. We have received countless positive comments on your outstanding speech and know that your message resonated throughout Minnesota. Your words were truly inspirational and motivational for our members.
-- Pam Seliga, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL)

For years the work of Priests for Life, and especially Fr Frank Pavone, has had an impact way beyond the Catholic Church. I can say confidently that many Evangelical pro-life leaders, my brother Robert and I among them, have benefited from and been challenged by our collaboration with Fr Frank. I am thrilled to be able to work this closely with him and the whole staff, in bringing Evangelicals and Catholics together to build a "culture of life".
-- Rev. Dr. Paul C Schenck, Chaplain National Ministry Center at the US Supreme Court Many thanks again for your brilliant presentation on contraception at the November 17 breakfast-meeting organized by the Catholic men’s group of the World Bank-IMF. You captured the audience with your intelligence, persuasiveness, and clarity of concepts and words.
-- Maurizio Ragazzi

Many, Many thanks for your inspiring words at our March Legatus meeting in Milwaukee. We all found your words thoughtful and motivating. Hopefully, each of us in our own way can support the mission of Priests for Life.

Thank you so very much for your participation in the Sixth Annual Catholic Leadership Conference. Your inspiring and informative presentation was greatly appreciated. We have received so many positive comments from the CLC members in attendance. By their report, the information received and enthusiasm generated from the conference will be a tremendous boost in leading their organizations. Again, our sincerest thanks for sharing your time and expertise. We are most grateful.
-- The Catholic Leadership Steering Committee of the Catholic Leadership Conference

Fr. Frank has been a trusted mentor, theological and spiritual advisor and personal friend to me over many years in my work with Rachel's Vineyard. He brings a wealth of psychological, spiritual/pastoral knowledge and experience as priest and counselor with those wounded by abortion. Fr Frank is a popular speaker at our National Leadership Conferences. He is always an informative, compassionate, and inspiring presenter with excellent content and delivery. Fr. Frank has the gift of taking complex issues and presenting them in a way that is easy to retain and apply practically in day to day post abortion ministry for clergy, professionals and laity.
-- Theresa Burke, Ph.D., LPC, NCP, Founder, Rachel's Vineyard Ministries, Author, Forbidden Grief - The Unspoken Pain of Abortion

Thank you for your inspiring words, for sharing your ministry, and for all your dedication to this work. Richard Dreyfus has nothin' compared to you!
-- Bernadette Gonzalez, Executive Director, The Right to Life League of Southern California.

Congratulations on receiving the Proudly Pro?Life Award at the National Right?to?Life's annual dinner, Father! We are proud to claim you as a New Yorker. You are one of our own. God has worked mighty things in your call to defend His little ones. And we praise Him for raising you up. May you continue to follow His inspirations. You, and all the Priests for Life, are in the daily prayers of the Sisters of Life. With you we rejoice that He is Risen. Alleluia! Fondly in Christ, our Life, Mother Agnes, SV, Sisters of Life
My goodness, but you're going from strength to strength. I well remember our conversation here some years ago when you were just launching this apostolate, and it is most gratifying to see how it has born such magnificent fruit. The immediate occasion of this is to congratulate you on the reward proposal for killers of abortionists, and for the really fine materials on "preaching on abortion." I have no doubt that the latter will both embolden and enable many priests to do their duty. .... As ever,
-- (The Rev.) Richard John Neuhaus, President, Religion and Public Life

Franciscan University is so proud to honor Fr. Frank Pavone. He realizes in everything he does and stands for that all life comes from God and thus has a sacred character.
-- Fr. Terence Henry, Franciscan University

Fr. Pavone is doing such an important service for the Church. He has been remarkable in his initiatives and leadership in the pro-life cause.
-- Fr. Michael Scanlan, Franciscan University

You and your people are doing great work for the Lord. I hate the thought of the Church without it. So may the good Lord guide you in doing your most important work. I pray that yours will be a good meeting and that your indispensable work will increase. You always make great common sense. If I were a millionaire, you surely would get part of it. All of you are in my daily prayers. In the Lord of Love and Life,
-- Fr. Paul B. Marx, OSB, Founder of Human Life International

After 25 years of involvement in the battle for sanctity of life, I feel confident saying that the seminar that features Fr. Frank Pavone is among the most helpful and informative. Fr. Pavone's message crosses denominational, social and political lines. --Dr. Jean Garton, Foundress, "Lutherans for Life"
Dear Fr. Frank, Congratulations on your anniversary marking your tireless service for the Lord. It is on of the most glorious blessings for me to work with you on LIFE and POST-ABORTION issues. You are an inspiration to all. God certainly was in a great mood when he gave you Life! Grace and Peace, Jennifer O’Neill, Actress, Model and National Spokesperson for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign
Dear Frank: God’s abundant grace and peace to you. It is do good that the ministry o f Priests For Life and you which is first of all God’s ministry and which represents genuine oneness – is being celebrated. It is fitting. It is proper. And it will be memorable, for those in attendance. During our years of collaboration, in serving the Gospel of Life, I have admired you, your character, your ministerial formation, your theological wisdom, and your leadership of Priests For Life. Your ministry is essential to the contemporary, prolife movement in the United States. Without your voice, example, and leadership, there would be more indecision and confusion among us. With your voice, example, and leadership, decisiveness and clarity, though imperfect, and more in evidence in the movement and in its current leadership. Also, Frank, I am so thankful for your ecumenical spirit. Your occasional references to John Wesley and your openness to the common prayer among Catholics and Methodists last summer at the 2008 Right to Life Convention will never be forgotten by this pastor. Finally, your friendship is reason for thanksgiving to God. For years I have understood you as a brother in Christ and as a personal friend. Do continue faithful in all things. In Christ and with admiration,
-- Paul Stallsworth, LifeWatch, Task Force of United Methodists

Dear Fr. Pavone, It is my distinct pleasure to commemorate this truly remarkable milestone for you and Priests For Life. Thank you for 15 years of dedicated effort and faithfulness on the issue of life and congratulations on reaching 20 years of service in the church. Just this past week, the Alliance Defense Fund also celebrated its 15th year of ministry. Having grown together, we are honored to call you a friend and key ally in seeking to preserve the sanctity of life in our society. Thank you for taking such a strong stand and refusing to compromise on one of the cornerstone issues facing our society. We appreciate your friendship as a brother and co-laborer. Thank you, God Bless you, and we look forward to the next 15 years with great anticipation that God might grant us the blessing to see the value of human life be restored to its proper place within the fabric of our culture. Yours for religious freedom in America,
-- Alan E. Sears, Alliance Defense Fund

Priests for Life has done an amazing job of helping to spread the 40 Days for Life campaign to hundreds of cities across the nation - and around the globe. Fr. Frank Pavone has tirelessly promoted 40 Days for Life through every possible communication channel, personally contributed many of the daily devotionals used throughout the campaign, and deployed the entire Priests for Life pastoral team across the country to visit dozens of 40 Days for Life campaign sites, providing support, encouragement, and guidance. I truly believe that much of the explosive growth of 40 Days for Life has been due to the involvement of Priests for Life and I cannot say enough good things about Fr. Frank and his team. 40 Days for Life is proud to have Priests for Life as a primary partner, working together to end abortion."
-- David Bereit, National Campaign Coordinator

Dear Father Frank, Thank you so very much for so generously sharing in Life Choices’ Anniversary celebration. I thank God for your great talent! You are blessed with the ability to boldly speak the truth as well as share powerful words of encouragement. The combination is rare and so greatly needed. Your kindness to our guests, your ability to speak to each person with great kindness and patience was wonderful! I saw in our actions a second powerful testimony to the sanctity of each human life. God’s people have certainly been blessed by your priesthood and the awesome work of Priests for Life. I cannot thank you enough!
-- Sincerely, Joan Fasanello

I am writing with grateful thanks for the article you published in you May-June newsletter, profiling Fr. Robert Spitzer and the Life Principles Program. Your article was beautifully done and has generated over 20 calls from parishes all around the country (from LA to NY) in only one week since its publication. We have placed videos series in more parishes through your profile than we have in one week of any other mode of advertising. Your readership is certainly committed to this issue (and you can rest assure that they are reading your newsletter)! Camille E. De Blasi, M.A. Director, Life Principles Institute.
I just wanted to say thanks to Fr. Frank, Janet and the Burkes for the great visit. The students here loved meeting and talking to you all and hearing about the important work – and the hope there is that the wounds of abortion can be healed – and made unthinkable. The seeds are planted. It will be exciting to watch them grow! Blessings to you all! - Miss Virginia G. Mortensen, Director of Development, International Theological Institute
I had the privilege of being on the first Pro-Life Freedom Ride and it was a very exciting and moving experience. Thank you to PFL, Father Pavone, and Alveda King, who led the ride, rally, prayer vigil at Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Birmingham, and prayer near the tomb of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Atlanta. It was a very "ecumenical" and "interdenominational" event with several priests and pastors in leadership roles. It was a blessing to be with some of the key African American pro-life leaders and to get to know them better. They are up against such attack by their own communities for the stand they are taking for life. I encourage all of you to get your members and contacts to participate in upcoming Pro-Life Freedom Rides, and join yourself! - Peggy Hartshorn, Heartbeat International
This morning, as I was praying for you and some other friends in the NRB, I was reminded again how blessed we are to have so many outstanding members. I want you to know how grateful I am for your membership and your involvement in NRB! I pray that God would multiply His blessing to you today and that you would rejoice in His great faithfulness. - Frank Wright (National Religious Broadcasters
We commend the pro-life witness and action Priests for Life has demonstrated nationwide in the Right to Life fight over these many years since the infamous Supreme Court decision on Jan 22, 1972. You are an inspiration to priests and the laity alike in this cause to end the slaughter of the innocents. May God continue to bless you, your staff and Priests for Life’s activities to end abortion on demand… - Larry M., Grand Knight and Thomas T., Pro-Life Chairman, Dubois, PA Knights of Columbus
Fr. Frank, Everyone here at Right to Life of Michigan would like to thank you for all of your work for those who have no voice. Your visits to Michigan, have always energized our people and given them the energy and faith to continue to fight the good fight knowing that we are on the winning side. Your dedication and devotion to the prolife mission serves as a model for all of us as well as a beacon of hope and truth. May God continue to bless you and all of you at Priests for Life as you continue to defend the Right to Life.For Life, - The Staff of Right to Life of Michigan
Fr. Frank, You and I go way back before your taking the helm and building up PFL into a major force in the pro-life movement. I remember well, as a new priest in the late 80s, your keen desire to build up and improve the effectiveness of our movement. You have always worked very hard to bring the best people together in this most noble cause, especially working hard to reinvigorate the Catholic community, and particularly the clergy. I admire the tremendous work you do with your mission visits to every state and many countries, your awesome website, and many ongoing educational initiatives, and especially the inspiration you and your colleagues continue to give many thousands of us on the front lines. Thanks for the many favors you have done for Expectant Mother Care, such as lending Fr. Peter West to Expectant Mother Care to join our Hike and Bike for Life in 1999, for speaking at our Ground Zero Cruise for Life in 2001, and for involving us in the Face the Truth tour this spring. Little things like obtaining Chinese and Cantonese pro-life materials for us from Asia are the important helps that help us save lives. Your assembly of a superb staff of activists at PFL on Staten Island and around the country are a testament of the great leadership you have brought to the cause. I believe you are our movement's most effective spokesman at this time in nation's history. We need you now more than ever. Please always keep us Christ focused as we wage battle for the weakest and most defenseless in our world. Yours for Life and Family, Chris Slattery, Founder and President of Expectant Mother Care New York City and Westchester
On behalf of our State Deputy W. James White and all the members of the NJ State Council Knights of Columbus, please accept this token of our appreciation for speaking at our 2004 State Convention Banquet. Your enthusiasm at Mass and the inspirational message at our banquet, later that evening will be something our members will remember for a very long time. Thank you again and may God bless you and your mission for life. Thomas P. Ciborski, NJ Sate Treasurer
It was wonderful to have had the opportunity to meet with you and the others here at the Council earlier in the week. I’m always inspired to hear of all of the ways that you and all those associated with Priests for Life continue to wage the battle against the culture of death. And we are winning indeed! In the Lord, Rev. Geno Sylva, STD, Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization
I wish to express my great thanks to Father Frank Pavone, MEV for the opportunity to send this letter. I have known Father Pavone since his days as a seminarian at St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers, New York. As I am sure you all are, I am also very grateful for his work in promoting the Culture of Life and opposing the Culture of Death. May God bless him as he continues his great work with Priests for Life and the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life. So many priests dedicated to promoting and protecting the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death has proven to be an enormous force in promoting the Gospel of Life in America and throughout the world. - Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR
Dear Father Frank, I am very delighted to be part of the surprise celebration of your 15 years of priestly ordination and 10 years as National Director of Priests for Life. Priests for Life has brought a very special and unique aspect to the pro-life movement in the United States, which is much in large measure due to your own efforts. I take a humble pride in all of this, since I was not only your teacher at Dunwoodie but your guide to the Holy Land. We must continue to hope and pray that our witness for life will eventually turn the tide in this country. In the meantime we have to lead our Catholic people in the position of being a counter-cultural minority. This is very much a biblical position and we should not back away from it. Ad multos annos Frank, and I continue to pray in support for the Priests for Life Movement as a significant part of the pro-life movement in the United States. With many blessings and prayers, I am Sincerely in Christ, Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR
I hope that many priests and deacons will join the Priests for Life. This association needs many members to educate and encourage all the priests and deacons who must all work together to stop the terrible war against unborn children. – Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Dear Father Pavone: I am writing to again express my heartfelt thanks for your key involvement in the lives of the 80 Blackstone Interns during The Blackstone Fellowship. This summer was successful, in part, because of your participation in challenging these students to engage the prevailing legal culture with the claims of truth, including the character of being a worshipful warrior. You have impacted a new generation of attorneys, legal scholars, and judges. These students have now entered "Phase IV" where they will begin applying what they have learned as they complete their law school training. I believe we are seeing history in the making through The Blackstone Fellowship - the paradigm is shifting.To tangibly demonstrate the impact you have made, please find enclosed a copy of this year's closing banquet. It will provide you a glimpse of how your teaching has affected these students. The Intern testimonials provoke gratitude to God acid inspire hope for the future. We are currently reviewing evaluations of all faculty and will electronically send you copies of your specific evaluations in the next couple of weeks. Thank you for passionately demonstrating truth. For the King's Glory, Jeffery J.Ventrella, Esq. Sr. Vice-President Office of Strategic Training
Fr. Frank was one of just a few people who were allowed to be with my sister, Terri during her final moments of life. Father has been a leading voice among the pro-life movement, fiercely advocating for all the most vulnerable members of our nation whose lives hang in a very delicate balance. Our family has come to know Fr. Pavone in both our public and private struggles. We recognize and share with the millions of his supporters around the globe that Father's voice and his endless determination to protect the sacredness of life, is vital to the pro-life cause. - Bobby Schindler, Co-Executive Director, Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network
This probably is the most pivotal moment in the pro life struggle in America. The tide is turning and for the first time I can remember the nation’s conscience is being stirred and the majority now desire to protect the life of innocent babies. The ministry of Priests For Life has played the major role in this swing of heart and Father Frank's spirit and wisdom has been incalculable....Father’s insightful projects and his creation of an effective African American outreach is a catalyst of a new and much needed conversation in the African American community. The discussion of Black Genocide in the African American community has been a priority and has assisted my call to reach the Black community. I can now remember Father Frank leading our African American congregation(Baptist) and others from a local parish in a demonstration at our local abortion clinic. It was my first and it sparked a zeal in our church that continues today. We all in the Pro-life movement look to his leadership...Sincerely Yours, Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr.
I have known Fr. Frank personally since he was appointed by Cardinal John O’Connor as director of Priests for Life 20 years ago. I have frequently appeared with Fr. Frank at pro-life conferences and have participated in myriad projects with him. I can honestly say that I have never met a more dedicated, passionate and hard-working pro-lifer, priest or layman. I know for a fact that Fr. Pavone never charges a dime for a speaking engagement. He travels wherever he is invited and pours himself into his mission to motivate Catholics and faithful Christians to join the fight against abortion, to reach out in compassion to troubled and desperate pregnant mothers and to lead post-abortive women and men to healing in Jesus Christ. I have heard Fr. Pavone speak dozens of times. Each presentation is unique, thoughtful and rooted in the Gospel. ...He desperately wants to spread the Gospel of Life, to make people understand the urgency of the mission to restore the sanctity of life. - Joe Scheidler, Pro-Life Action League
For Fr. Frank, being a bold voice for babies and a compassionate priest for the Church is not an either/or thing. He is both – all the time. When I had questions about faith, I went to Fr. Frank and he answered them. When I needed counsel, he was there. When I decided to become a Roman Catholic in 1998, Fr. Frank received me into the Church. At no time did Fr. Frank’s tireless work on behalf of God’s precious babies interfere with his priestly work on behalf of this prodigal daughter. And I’m quite sure I am not an exception. Fr. Frank is first and foremost a priest, but he is one who has been uniquely gifted by God to speak with humility and power on behalf of those our society treats as less than human. - The Late Norma McCorvey, The "Roe" of Roe vs.Wade.
As President of Anglicans for Life and Co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, I have had the opportunity to work very closely with Fr. Frank Pavone and his staff for over 10 years. I have been to numerous meetings at the Priests for Life offices and in all my interactions with him and his staff, integrity and commitment to the pro-life cause has been their hallmark. Father Pavone has answered the call from God, within his priestly vocation, to serve in full-time pro-life work. His ability to serve in this capacity over the past twenty years has saved the lives of countless unborn children. His faithful ministry has resulted in the healing of countless others who have been touched by the tragedy that is abortion. He has become a unifying force in the pro-life movement, and every leader in this great cause values the work of both Father Pavone and Priests for Life. .. I can attest that Fr. Pavone has served steadfastly, investing sacrificially his time and considerable talents in the cause of promoting a culture of life and upholding the sacred dignity and value of every human being. As president of the National Pro-life Religious Council he has led with grace, and humility, uniting those with similar convictions under the banner of Christ. - Georgette Forney, President of Anglicans for Life and Co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign
Fr. Frank, I want you to know that in my opinion, nobody speaks more effectively and as passionately for the unborn as you do. We are very fortunate to have such a strong and committed pro-life voice as you. - Ray Flynn, Former Mayor of Boston and US Ambassador to The Holy See
On several occasions we have joined hands with Father Frank Pavone to end the dismemberment of children inside the womb of their own mother. In particular we are indebted to Father Frank Pavone and the ministry of Priest for Life for their role in the Pro-Life Freedom rides. The Freedom rides communicated a determined and desperately needed Pro-Life message to communities of color.- Walter Hoye II, National Black Pro-Life Coalition
We are grateful to Fr. Pavone for the help he has extended Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFCFFL) particularly in providing keynote speakers for our national Pro-life conferences...In each case, Priests for Life did not charge a fee for the speaking engagements and yet the talks were exactly what we the laity needed to hear from the Church .. Priests for Life... has inspired many Catholics to rally behind the cause for defending the innocent unborn...

I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed the book and how excited I am to make it one of our new resources. It is so exciting to hear about the ways God is working to help us share with people the truth about the Church's teaching on sexuality. May God bless you for all that you are doing.
-- Kristie Wellman, Coordinator of Youth and Family Outreach, One More Soul

"This book [The Contraception of Grief] will be provided to our Archdiocesan Pro-life Office as a resource for their work."
-- Reverend Robert T. Kickham, Archdiocese of Boston

“Many thanks for the honor of reviewing your most recent booklet, Contraception of Grief. It’s truly an outstanding work. One that will not only enlighten married couples but will serve as an eye-opener for those about to become ‘two in one flesh.’”
-- Reverend Daniel McCaffrey, Director, Natural Family Planning Outreach

“The Contraception of Grief is excellent and needs to be spread far and wide. The item is most timely and hopefully very many will read it and spread it across the land. Much too little has been said and written about abortifacients, but now we have your document, The Contraception of Grief (The Genesis of Anguish Conceived by Abortifacients and Sterilization). Again, hopefully you will spread this far and wide.
-- Reverend Paul B. Marx, OSB, Founder, Human Life International

“The present work, The Contraception of Grief, is a fascinating analysis of the bitterness caused by that other vehicle of the culture of death, namely, contraception. While the grief it engenders is in a certain sense of another order than the post-abortion grief, the booklet highlights one of the most fundamental evils of chemical contraception: its abortifacient nature. The “contraceptive evangelists” as it calls them know full well that every society which caves into birth control eventually succumbs to abortion and so, I believe that the present authors have given us a new and truly helpful instrument with which to continue our fight.”
-- Reverend Thomas J. Euteneuer, President, Human Life International

I just finished writing to Theresa Burke to thank her for her new book, The Contraception of Grief: The Genesis of Anguish Conceived by Abortifacients and Sterilization. We plan to review it in a coming issue of Celebrate Life, and are convinced that such a book is long overdue. And it was while reading what I could from the internet that I happened upon your article, Abortifacients: The other Forbidden Grief. The article is excellent. … thank you for writing this touching testimony to the power of Jesus Christ to be all that we are not, especially when we need Him the most. Sincerely yours in the Lord Who IS LIFE
-- Judie Brown American Life League


The dedication that this movement represents - and you’re the core of it - I’m sitting here at the table thinking that when the history books are written on the pro-life movement, when we finally get through this terrible tunnel of darkness with the number of lives and people we’ve killed and allowed to be killed – a lot of the people that are going to be written in that history book are in this room today – Fr. Pavone, I see over here. - Senator Sam Brownback, Kansas
Specifically, I would like to offer my congratulations to Pat DeAngelis, Sr. Mary Rose McGeady, Jim Murray and Fr. Frank Pavone. It is an honor to join your friends and families in recognizing each of you as a 2005 recipient of the Outstanding Catholic Leadership Award. Your generosity and selflessness gave gained you a reputation that is truly inspiring, and certainly well deserved. The work that you do is essential to the needs of your community and I want to convey my appreciation of all you do on behalf of those who need it most. Your devotion has benefited so many individuals and it is wonderful to know that so many have gathered in recognition of your service. – Rick Santorum, United State Senate, October 18, 2005
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the pro-life convention in Wilmington. The highlight of the night was Father Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life. His words were informative and compelling. He did what too many Catholics do not do; he talked about how the political process has been left to those who oppose almost everything we believe in, yet we sit in silence. I encourage all who read this paper to listen to Father Pavone’s advice and become active and voice your concerns. The very foundation of our society is at stake. – Letter to the Editor from Mike Protack, Republican candidate for governor of Delaware.
In 1973, I was a member of the Montana House of Representatives (1969-75). I sponsored the "Hyde Amendment", in the Montana Legislature; it passed both Houses and went on to the Congress asking for a Constitutional Amendment "guaranteeing the right to life, from the First moment of Conception", --- you know the rest of the story. ...I want to take this means to congratulate you and the other Priests and the Franciscans of EWTN, for finally stepping out STRONGLY for life. You make me proud for your courage and integrity... ... but I’m happy to be a Catholic and stand for life. THANK YOU!!!
-- Bob Harper

You-and Priests for Life-are an inspiration and blessing beyond words. The wisdom and compassion of your commentary and homilies not only challenge us to strive and persist, but you provide an enormous amount of perspective in our work to establish the culture of life. ... Thanks – US Congressman Chris Smith (NJ)
Dear Frank, I am grateful for you strong stand for life, protecting the defenseless ones at every stage of development, and helping to rebuild a “culture of life” in our nation. Thanks for all you do. I look forward to our paths crossing again in the near future. Sincerely yours,
-- William H. Frist, M.D., Majority Leader, United States Senate

Dear Fr. Pavone, Your speech at the Crisis dinner was a confirmation that yours has been a great public life. You have poured both your heart and your soul into your service to our country; and your faith is both inspiring and inspired. Warmest blessings to you and yours in the days ahead.
-- Tim Goeglein, Special Assistant to President Bush and Deputy Director Public Liaison.

My sincere thanks to Father Frank Pavone & Dr. Alveda King - tireless crusaders for all lives. - Congressman Sean Duffy.

Fr. Frank Pavone, You have energized the priests (and the laity) in the United States to become a true and rational voice for the Sanctity of Life. Blessings on you and your work. Affectionately, - Licia Nicassio, Director of the Office of Respect Life, Los Angeles
As someone who works for the Diocese of Charleston, Family Life Office, I would like to thank you and everyone involved with Priests for Life for your support and guidance. We are inspired by your courage and appreciate the strong pro-life leadership you have provided for us. Thank you for being such a valuable resource for the Church! - Kathy Schmugge
Father Frank, I really enjoyed doing our workshop together this weekend
-- thanks for letting me bask in your reflected glory !!
-- Vera Faith Lord, Alpha Omega Life

Dear Father Pavone, Thanks for your strong leadership. You are a blessing to America and an inspiration to all of us who labor in the prolife vineyard. Congrats on 20 years as a Priest. May God continue to bless you and your ministry. - Adrienne, Respect life director
It was a great honor to have been able to have Fr. Pavone speak at our convention. We have heard nothing but positive responses. Thank you for all of the hard work you do for life.
-- Marilyn Wachs, Respect Life Coordinator, Aberdeen, South Dakota

I am very thankful that you were able to give the keynote address at the Bishop's Respect Life Rally ... I am still getting great comments from people about your inspiring keynote address. …. We are very grateful to be able to offer your inspiring and hope filled message to those who were unable to attend the rally.
-- Julie Orr, Respect Life Coordinator, Diocese of Baton Rouge, LA

The response to your message was tremendous. In fact, never before have we had a uniformly positive response to anyone speaking to the entire priestly community here in our diocese. This is a first! Kent Peters, Diocese of Duluth, MN
Your stay with us here in Louisiana was most inspiring. The pastor had great reviews for you and our pro-life leadership was almost ecstatic. --Brenda Desormeaux, Diocese of Lafayette, LA
I want to thank you for the inspiring retreat you preached at My Father's House this past month. I had no idea you are such a powerful preacher and insightful theologian. Joe Collison, Diocesan Pro-Life Director, Diocese of Norwich, CT
Father Frank Pavone, National Director for "Priests for Life" was well received by pastors, deacons, administrators and pro-life lay people. His presentation was exceptional. Father Pavone’s talks were nothing but energizing. His remarks seemed to strike a chord in our hearts by the way he was able to convey the Church’s teaching on human life. He was able to gently expose the prevailing justifications for not being actively involved as Catholic Christians. The people…were impressed with his ability to take the human life issues, our place as Catholic Christians in the political and social struggle, and show us why we should be involved and how important our involvement and commitments can be.
-- Peggy Sinanian, Pro-Life Director of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Your newsletter is great … Keep up the great work! God Bless
-- Patty Rodriguez, Diocesan Respect Life Coordinator Diocese of Fresno

Thank you so much, Father, for all you do! You are without a doubt hero to millions of pre-born babies and one of the Church’s great treasures.
-- Rita Diller, Coordinator, Respect Life Ministries, Diocese of Amarillo

On the part of the Family Life Respect Life Office, we wish to express our heartfelt gratitude for your participation in Respect Life ’99. Your thoughtful presentation provided our audience with deeper insight and vision about becoming more effective apostles for the Gospel of Life. Equally important is the conviction and hope you give witness to. We are confident that your words will continue to be a source of nourishment for those who attended Respect Life ’99. Sincerely in Christ, Fr. John, Bonnici, STD, Director, Family Life and Respect Life Office, Archdiocese of New York and Kevin S.D. Connelly, Respect Life Coordinator, Archdiocese of New York, Family and Respect Life Office
Fr Pavone has been [here] at the invitation of the office of pro-life activities and individual parishes. He ...is well received by thousands on EWTN. Fr. Pavone is always well received whether in person, the newsletter or electronic media.
-- Judith A. Gorman, Diocese of Buffalo

Fr. Pavone has been to our diocese in three separate occasions in which he has reached people of all faiths at a fund-raising banquet, workshops at our diocesan catechetical convention, and homily presentations in our parishes. The helpful resources that he makes available are also distributed and serve as a valuable resource in the parishes which are not able to hear him present in person. Fr. Pavone is received with good evaluations at all the events he has taken part in. We are grateful for the time he has taken to travel and be present in our diocese.
-- Rachelle Sauvageau, Director, Diocese of Fargo

Priests for Life has been a wonderful resource. It is important to me to know you're there ready to assist.
-- Maggie Fitzpatrick Nadol, Diocese of Charlotte

The Priests for Life newsletter is well accepted and informative.
-- Rev. Jay Peterson, Great Falls-Billings

It is with my greatest admiration and respect that I wish to thank you for your willingness to participate in our Summer Rally for Life. The weekend events were a great success. We were able to connect with many people to re-energize their "pro-life batteries". All the planning for the last several weeks and months were well worth the effort as we accomplished our goal of keeping the pro-life message alive during the summer. It was truly a pleasure to meet you (at last) and to spend some time with you.
-- Dick Frost, Director, Department of Marriage and Family Life, Diocese of Duluth, MN

I received your recent email with your greetings. Thank you. I also want you to know that we priests are so very proud of the work you are doing. Your leadership and guidance in the Pro-Life movement is truly an inspiration to us and for us.
-- Very Rev. E. Michael Camilli, M.S.C. Secretary for Catholic Life and Evangelization Diocese of Allentown, PA

Letter of praise and endorsement for Janet Morana from Vicki Evans, Respect Life Coordinator, Archdiocese of San Francisco, August 2007
Dear Fr. Pavone and Janet: The Fourth Annual Walk for Life West Coast has come and gone and I want to thank you both for being here and helping to make it the great success it was. Your presence helped raise national awareness of what is going on out on the West Coast when it comes to the culture of life. Hopefully, we broke the stereotype that says that everyone in the San Francisco Bay Area and on the West Coast is pro-abortion. We showed the nation that nearly 30,000 people can come together peacefully and in the face of huge opposition to say that life is the best and the only choice. We walked for the rights of the pre-born, for women, men and families. On behalf of all the organizations you traveled across the country to support – the San Francisco Archdiocesan Respect Life Program, the Walk for Life West Coast, the Interfaith Committee for Life and Issues4Life Foundation – thank you. Thank you for your tireless support and for your graciousness in going to all the events we planned for you. It was quite a hectic schedule but your energy and commitment never failed. God bless both of you for your tireless work for the unborn. We are proud to include you in our Walk for Life West Coast family.
-- Vicki Evans, Respect Life Coordinator, Archdiocese of San Francisco

Dear Fr. Frank, Congratulations on the 20th anniversary of your priesthood. You are one of my all time favorite priests. Thank you for all of the help you have given to my ministry as respect life director. Your visits to our local churches, participation in the respect life conferences held in our diocese and for the great resources you provide. Without this, our work would be so much weaker. I will write a letter to Big Boss in heaven and request a half day indulgence for what you have done for us. For a guy in my position, that’s the most they’ll give me. You won’t need it anyway. Sincerely,
-- Don Kazimir, Respect Life Director, Diocese of Palm Beach, FL

Dear Father Frank, The archdioceses of Miami respect life office sends you our love, prayers. Congratulations on your anniversary as director of Priests for Life and on your 20th anniversary as priest. We are so grateful to God for giving us someone like you who inspires every one of us in the prolife movement to be courageous and to do everything we can to defend the least among us. I admire your strength and your humility and I pray that God will continue to bless you with health and wisdom to know HIS will and to continue HIS work. In the words of Henry Hyde, “Isn’t it remarkable that God wanted you to be born at this time and place? Not St. Francis of Assisi, not St. Catherine of Siena, not St. Ignatius Loyola – but you!” God bless you.
-- For their lives, Joan M. Crown, Archdiocese of Miami Respect Life Office

Thank you so much for taking the time, energy, and dedication to fly out to the West Coast for our Respect Life Retreat. We've received some wonderful feedback from the event: "it was a quality day", "I got so much out of the conference", and " It has really invigorated me to get involved again." Certainly, we owe the success of the conference to your commitment in spreading the truth about abortion, your clear and educational seminars, and your enthusiasm! We were certainly honored to have you as a guest speaker for this event. I was told that your staff…was especially friendly, helpful, and gracious in handling our many questions and logistical details. May God bless each of you as you minister to His children!
-- George A. Welolek, Director, Office of Public Policy and Social Concerns, Archdiocese of San Francisco

Thank you for the newsletters on line! Fr. Pavone was jus in Chattanooga and spoke so passionately and ignited a fire that I pray will help put out the Abortion clinics in Knoxville, like it did the ones in Chattanooga! God Bless you all!!
-- Paul Simoneau-Respect Life Director, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Thank you for coming to our annual Right to Life Dinner and being our guest speaker. Everyone was so excited to have you come. I know they enjoyed your speech on the “Single Most Important Question this Election Will Decide.”… I had several people comment on your speech and how impacted they were. Michigan Right to Life.

I preach regularly but I have only preached at two funerals in the last 27 years. That is when I searched for help and Fr. Frank came to the rescue. There were about 15 other deacons present, plus two priests and the congregation. All enjoyed the (Fr. Frank Pavone’s) homily titled, "You Do Not Belong to Death!" I did edit the homily and add some personal information about deacon Joe, but most of the homily was that supplied by Fr. Frank. At the "kiss of peace" I was especially thankful to hear the bishop say to me, "Very well done." Thanks again to Fr. Frank, and may God continue to bless him and his organization. -Deacon Don, Ontario Canada Archdiocese of Toronto.
I want to be a member of your fine organization. Your web page is great. So are your written products. Keep up the good work. - Deacon Gene
Thank you very much for remembering us, the Deacons, often times we slip through the cracks. -Deacon John
Blessings to you in the wonderful Name of Jesus! What a valuable ministry you carry on here. I will be signing up for membership in the Canadian organization.
-- Deacon Gord

May God continue to richly bless the wonderful work that the Priests for Life are doing

Thank you for a great web site. Keep praying for all the abortion victims, and be certain that Our Blessed Lady will invoke her Son’s power to bring about an end to this horrible crime that is so rampant in our country and throughout the world.
-- Deacon John

Fr. Pavone-Thanks for sending your column to the deacon list. I try to preach often on pro-life issues. The information in this column will be very useful. Keep up the GOOD NEWS.
-- Deacon Bob Davis, Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church, Swartswood, NJ,

I have been so blessed and enlightened by you and fed spiritually from you and your shows etc. I am a validly ordained deacon. A convert from the Greek Antiochian Orthodox Church. Your Servant in Christ, (deacon) Joseph
Thank you so much for expanding your website to include Deacons. I am a newly ordained Deacon and am very interested in promoting a deeper spiritual life for all clergy. Deacon Ron
It was indeed a great pleasure and a privilege to meet and hear you. God be with you: don't waver-don't give up, please!!! Deacon Dennis
To be honest, I don't know how I ended up at this site .... but wow ..I am a recently ordained Permanent Deacon. Thank you for this site. Fr. Frank's bi-weekly profile sounds very interesting. Thank You and May God Bless Deacon Bill
This evening, as I was flipping through the channels on the television, I came across the coverage of the National Right to Life Prayer Breakfast at which you were speaking. Your very straightforward speech riveted my attention, and led me to feel that somehow I need to support and participate in the excellent work of your organization. Thank you for devoting your life to this very important mission of Christ's Church. May God continue to bless your work and shine His light upon you.
-- Deacon Joseph Hulway, Romeo, MI

Fr. Pavone, I am third year Diaconate class … Next to EWTN your ministry has been the vehicle that I have (re)rooted my faith and have truly been able to understand the issues of abortion that we don’t hear about otherwise. Keep up the good work your ministry is a blessing to the Church and to all of God’s people. --MH
The accomplishments of Priests for Life are outstanding. We see the results of your work encouraging all of us in the world today. God bless and thank all of you at Priests for Life office. Deacons in the Service of Life is great. We would like to bring it to our Diaconate Community. Thank you and God's choicest blessings for you each and every day. In the love of the living Christ, Deacon Ed
Keep up your great ministry - we need the leadership you provide. Deacon Nick
Dear Fr. Frank, Thank you for your homily ... today is my 15th Anniversary to the Order of Deacon. I really needed to hear your homily --Thanks and God Bless --Deacon Joe
Fr. Frank: You recent message about the You Tube “Is this what you mean?" campaign must have been the prompting of the Holy Spirit. It is brilliant. Several of the deacons in this diocese are meeting this Saturday to explore ways to really promote the project. Thanks for the tools! May God continue to bless you and your associates in His service and in the service of human life! - Deacon Pete, St Johnsbury, VT
Fr. Pavone, Bless you and your ministry. You have helped me past a few hurdles and your witness to the truth have been the inspiration to me and my ministry. - Dcn. Marcelino

I am a Protestant minister who first became acquainted with Priests for Life through the Eternal Word network. I have been a faithful listener to your programs on the TV and the Shortwave programming. I have followed many of your suggestions - writing letters to Editors/ for one. I have been amazed at the doors that have opened- and how the Lord has been drawing me more and more to unite with Catholics in this great cultural issue of our time- the holocaust of the unborn. I have even had articles published in the Dubuque Catholic Diocese Newspaper. Now I feel led to move from listening and praying for your ministry to supporting it financially.  Here is a small contribution to your work. We are non-Catholics who are really inspired by your appearances on EWTN.


Dear Father Frank Pavone, Though I am not Catholic, I am a pro-life Christian. Thank you so much for all that you do for life, and for your leadership on the pro-life issue!  You were one of the first people to follow me on my newly created Twitter account in March, and I thank you so much for that! I have been passionate about life ever since I was 14 and pregnant with my son. Today, I’m 54, and the Lord has certainly taken me on a journey over these past 40 years, including, most recently, becoming a published author of a pro-life Christian novel entitled "The Dream."  Though fiction, this novel packs a powerful message about forgiveness and healing after abortion. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign has added it to their resource list on their website. My website, www.deboraharlene.com, has a variety of information,.- Deborah Arlene


Dear Fr. Frank, I really enjoyed visiting your website. I am an Anglican priest in the UK, and feel strongly about pro-life issues. I feel that it is part of our responsibility as priests to make a stand on such issues. You are fortunate in being a priest in a Church that is not afraid to tell the world about the true values of the Christian Gospel. May God bless your good work. – Fr. William
I am an Anglican priest…This is an outstanding website, and I am commending it to the clergy in my Province, as well as to my parishioners.
-- Keep up the excellent work, and may God bless this ministry.
-- Fr. Charles

It was really wonderful to hear Fr. Frank again. I have heard him many times at events throughout the nation. I always think that Fr. Frank can speak for 20 minutes and fuel your thinking for the next 2 months. I really believe he has communicated verbally on this issue better than anyone else I know in the nation.
-- DV, An Evangelical Minister

Here is a small contribution to your work. We are non-Catholics who are really inspired by your appearances on EWTN.
-- TR

Recently I watched a show on Saturday on EWTN. I am not a Catholic but am a follower of Yashua. I was blessed by the lecture and feel led to inquire about receiving information on abortion.
-- HG

I am an evangelical Protestant. As such, you and I might have some considerable differences about various aspects of the Christian life. Nonetheless, I call you brother and bless you for you work on behalf of the innocent. Thank you for what you have done. God Bless You mightily.
-- AB, Colorado

I'm not Catholic but I do watch your program a lot. I must tell you that the segment on abortions was really touching, you are doing a wonderful piece of work for the Lord.
-- ES, Pennsylvania

I want to take this opportunity to express my deepest appreciation for the support which PFL has given to our efforts over the past year.
-- Chris Gersten, President, Christians & Jews for Life.

Marvelous presentation at retreat
-- as usual. I heard many unsolicited compliments on your talk and several of the commentators were Protestants who were amazed to hear such emphasis on prayer (other than formalized, rigidly structured prayer) and such a demonstrated command of scripture from a Catholic cleric. It is sad that negative stereotypes persist but encouraging to see you dispel them.
-- Gregg Cunningham, Center for Bioethical Reform

It's with great pleasure that we agree to be linked on your site. Frank Pavone is a courageous and wonderful fighter for life, a wonderful speaker and a warm and compassionate man who I've had the honor to meet a number of times. God bless your efforts!
-- Rev. Dean

It is a blessing to see your website. I only wish that we in the Orthodox Church would have such a group as you have. I am so happy to see that you have so many members and are involved with the most important issues of today. May our Risen Lord bless each of you+. --- Archbishop Stephan Petrovich Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church
I already signed your guest book but I wanted to double commend for spreading, to the best of your ability and resources, the Gospel of Life. I have read the several statements of the US Catholic Conference of Bishops on the Gospel of Life and one which dealt with properly exercising our stewardship in civil affairs. Mind you I am a Protestant minister but I must say you are courageously standing up for life as a gift given by God. As a brother in Christ and co-laborer in the Gospel I would like to encourage you to keep up the good work, run with perseverance the race set before us, and fight the good fight of faith. You are in my prayers.
-- Rev. CD

I want to congratulate Father Frank Pavone for the Nov. 2nd article in USA Today "What does support for the ‘Right to Choose’ say about a candidate’s character?" This is one of the most relevant and timely questions that demands an answer in America today. Thanks Father Pavone for the courage to state the facts to the American public. In support of Pro-life
-- Bishop Ray D. Hock, Allegheny & Susquehanna Conferences, Brethren in Christ Church

I have often watched Fr. Frank Pavone on EWTN and have enjoyed his talks so very much. It is very uplifting to see some of my fellow clerics so vocal on this crucial subject while so many others remain silent. - Rev. Ted, MD
Dear Father Frank, I think you and your fellow priests are doing an excellent, and holy work fighting the culture of death in the US. Your interpretation of the Gospel story of Lazarus and Dives was very interesting, and somewhat chilling! Keep up the good work....
-- Rev. James, MN

Thank you all for the hard work and strong commitment concerning "Pro-life". …. I have taken the very bold step to identify myself at my church - a Baptist church - as being Pro-life. It was during the last of June that I 'found' EWTN. It was at that time that I first saw Fr. Pavone and listened to his intelligent presentation. He was brilliant and logical, tempered, but not overwhelmed with the emotions that defeat so many others. [Others] could not move us, but Priests for Life and Fr. Pavone did! May our God continue to bless you and all whom respond to His cry and suffering for the poor lives of our innocent.

I am not a Catholic but am a minister (female) of another denomination. First, let me applaud my Catholic brothers for the great work in this area. Would it not be great if all members of Christendom could join with you in your efforts to cleanse our country of the horror of abortion? I for one am in your corner
-- keep up the good work. I may have differing views on doctrine, however, here is one place we can be united before the world.
-- Rev. Dorothy

I just want to thank you so much for doing what you are doing and for inspiring me to do more. I saw Patricia Ireland on the Fox News Channel tonight on the Hannity and Colmes show. She announced that "NOW" is issuing a state of emergency for women’s rights. She mentioned Priests for Life as the group she was most concerned about. So I thought to myself, that is a group I need to look up. It’s a good thing if Ms. Ireland is worried about your organization because that means you are making her nervous. Your website is so informative and helpful. I am Protestant and I will live to see that we all join forces and restore the value of the sanctity of life! Thank you again for all that you do, I am so honored by your tremendous service. Let’s keep fighting the good fight because we will win!
-- DM, Texas

The best way I can describe Priests for Life is that it is ‘The Pentagon meets the Vatican.’ Priests for Life, as an organization, has all the discipline of the Pentagon and all the grace of the Vatican.

-- Rev. Rob Schenck. National Pro-life Religious Council

Fr. Pavone, thanks so much for speaking at our conference. Your continued support and involvement in the work of the Institute for Religious Values has been critical to our success and even our survival. Priests For Life is the most generous organization I have ever worked with (and that includes hundreds of organizations). Thanks again,

I am a pastor of a large Protestant church in the San Diego area thank you.....thank you for having the courage to place the full-page ad in USA Today. It is extremely well done.
-- Your brother, Dr. Jim Garlow, Senior Pastor, Skyline Church, La Mesa, CA

[The] Lutheran Church, where I am pastor, is a growing, predominantly African American church in the heart of [the] African American community. I am also the keynote speaker for the Lutherans for Life national convention.... I've heard and been impressed with your presenting. - Pastor John, TX
I saw your wonderful pro-life TV advertisement tonight. Our family does not normally watch TV at all. For some reason, I wanted to see what was on. To my amazement, I hit your advertisement. This advertisement is going to do a lot of good. People need to hear your message. As you probably know, the pro-life stance is starting to win out in the polls of the populations. Your ad will certainly help. In this family, we are Southern Baptists living in a majority Catholic area. Keep up the good fight!
-- RP

Hi I am not Catholic but whenever I see you on TV, I love listening to you. I stand for your belief. You are very true what you have to say. Keep it up good job.
-- Beverly, NJ

As a Southern Baptist, I commend the excellent job that the Roman Catholic Church has done on speaking out on the right to life. Keep up the good work.
-- Rev. David, NY

Although I am neither Catholic nor a wholehearted ecumenist, I am of the opinion that the message can be treated independently of the messenger and as such have I avidly read "Answering Pro-abortion Rhetoric" and other sections of your website....I have found your "Answering Pro-abortion Rhetoric" comprehensive yet concise, simplifying yet not simplistic and very clearly focused on the mass of contradictions that is the pro-abortion case. I presume we share the analysis that resolving the issue is entirely dependent on the status of the unborn and yet you generously avoid belligerence on this point and address abortionists on their own terms as well. Thank you so much for a thought provoking and illuminating text.
-- Ben

Met Father Frank in Dallas. I am very happy that such an informed and spiritual priest has taken the mantel and working so hard to save children.
-- RD (Pentecostal)

You go Father Pavone. You are an awesome example and witness to the pro-life movement!!!
-- Justin

To begin, I am a member of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, not Catholic. I watched your sermon on EWTN last Thursday, and it was among the best I have ever seen.
-- Tim

Thanks again for such a great newsletter. The expansion on the theme of political activity and the Christian will continue to be helpful to us in the pro-life movement! ...We evangelicals not only hear you at pro-life conferences, but many of us receive your newsletter and support your organization. Although there are some doctrinal issues we part on, as Christians we all have the same Lord Jesus Christ and are motivated by our understanding of the Christian ethic in our pro-life work. Thanks for listening and for your outstanding leadership to all Christians!
-- LM

Dear Father Frank, I am a Protestant minister who first became acquainted with Priests for Life through the Eternal Word network. I have been a faithful listener to your programs on the TV and the shortwave programming. I have followed many of your suggestions - writing letters to Editors for one. I have been amazed at the doors that have opened and how the Lord has been drawing me more and more to unite with Catholics in this great cultural issue of our time - the holocaust of the unborn. I have even had articles published in the Dubuque Catholic Diocese Newspaper. Now I feel led to move from listening and praying for your ministry to supporting it financially. Love in Christ,
-- Rev Ed

We enjoy your wonderful and powerful television advertisements on PAX TV. As an Anglo-Catholic Priest, I support your efforts. --Reverend Thomas, MI
I am not Catholic, but am very impressed with the radio messages that I hear representing your organization on Bott radio network. Blessings.
-- Mike

Your God inspired messages fill my soul with a passion for life issues. Thank you for working with the Protestant community (Care-Net). We have great value and appreciation for your work.
-- JD

Keep up the good work. We Protestants love you and appreciate the work the Roman Catholic Church is doing for the unborn.
-- DJ

I respect Priests For Life and Fr. Frank Pavone for the work they do in helping restore our nation to a Biblical respect for all human life, and for working effectively with people of all races and denominations in this most important task.--Randy Phillips, President of The Promise Keepers
Fr. Pavone’s voice is "one-of-a-kind" in defense of unborn children. Your audience will be energized as never before when they hear him speak. I value his friendship very much-and Bott Radio Network is blessed to have his pro-life commentaries broadcast daily on each of our twenty stations across America.
-- Dick Bott, Bott Radio Network

Father Frank Pavone is a man who is passionately committed to the defense of preborn children, and to the sanctity of human life from conception to the grave. I have found him to be an articulate and intelligent promoter of this cause internationally. It has been my privilege to have Father Pavone as a guest on Focus on the Family, where he was warmly received by our listeners.
-- Dr. James Dobson, Ph.D, Focus on the Family

My name is Pastor Ken, and I just read about your strong stance on the preservation of life, during our recent election season. I am not Catholic, but am a bi-vocational Nazarene Pastor in the State of Nevada. Despite our denominational difference, we are brothers in Christ, and I commend you and your organization, Priests for Life. In this lost and hurting world, it is so important that we stand together to defend the most vulnerable in our society. I just wanted to write and thank you for serving Christ and our little ones as you do. Together, and with God's help, we can make a tremendous difference in people's lives, and in the lives of countless children and families. God bless you, and your fine work. - Pastor Ken

Kevin [Burke], The seminarians and I greatly benefited from your presentation and our discussion. May the Lord continue to bless your work for the ministry of healing for those affected by abortion. Trust in our prayer for you and we will look forward to future collaboration opportunities. Thanks and Peace! - Rev. Leo E. Patalinghug - Mount St. Mary's Seminary
I just want to let you guys know how much I appreciate all the hard work you put into the Seminarian Life Link Conference. Words can’t describe how blown away I was by the material given to us and how much it opened my eyes to the tragedy of abortion. I feel like I had a second conversion with pro-life issues. --MP, MD (Seminarian)
Wonderful. We needed the words you provided to wage the war. [-- St. Meinrad School of Theology]
Thanks for a very powerful and informative message, and more tools to work with. [-- St. Meinrad School of Theology]
This is to say thanks for the sponsorship that allowed me to attend the Seminarian Life Link Conference in August. The speakers, format, activities and facilities all helped provide an environment of prayer, enlightenment and personal growth. The Holy Spirit truly had his hand on the conference. Thanks also for your participation and witness. I am proud to be a part of the pro-life movement and to bring this message to those I interact with.... Living and serving God in this manner will be a part of my permanent ministry. Thanks to you and Priests for Life for being one of the catalysts in making that happen. --John O'Neill, Saint Meinrad School of Theology
The Seminarian Life Link conference has been a tremendous source of pro-life formation. Stuff that would take many books and hours of private study, which there is little time for in Seminary, is given to you in an intense five day retreat/conference with the best and most intelligent pro-life leaders in the world. Now that I have been going two years, I can hardly imagine how I could be formed as truly pro-life without attending this conference, it opens your eyes to reality. Thanks again for all your hard work with the conference. --Mike, St. Joseph's Seminary
Dear friend, I just want to inform you that I received the materials you sent me. I wish to thank you in a most special way. I lack words to express my gratitude. On another note, the materials you sent me are very informing and educative. I love that, my friends love that too. By June I will be doing my apostolic work, the materials will be useful to me…My friend seminarians here in Bigard Memorial Seminary send their greeting to you and Fr. Frank. Tell Fr. Frank that he is doing the job well. Thanks and GOD bless. JOHN BOSCO OBIKA, BIGARD MEMORIAL SEMINARY, NIGERIA, WEST AFRICA
NB. Thank you for all the efforts you so tirelessly, and selflessly make for the sake of the Gospel!!! You and Fr. Pavone are outstanding examples for seminarians like myself and for all God's people!!! –
Fr. Pavone, ..I have watched your program, Priests for Life, on EWTN and find it to be a true blessing for the Catholic Church and for our Protestant brothers and sisters. ..I respect you immensely, and cheer on your efforts along with so many more groups throughout the nation and the world that have stood up to the plate in defense of the Right to Life.- Stephen
I am a seminarian…I attended your conference this past summer. I would like to thank you for all your dedicated work; the Two by Two project is incredible! WD, OR
April 17, 1999, this little Italian priest from Staten Island walks into a classroom at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary of the West in Cincinnati Ohio and absolutely shook the dust from the rafters and in doing so changed my life forever. You awoke in me the sleeping giant (no pun intended) of truth and you concluded our lunch by challenging me to 'think BIG,' and thus began Seminarian Life Link. Without your guidance and assistance SLL would still be just another BIG idea in my head. But more importantly from that April 17th morning began my friendship with you. Your constant friendship and guidance has inspired me to be a better man, a better pro-life leader and more importantly a better 'soon-to-be-priest.' I speak for both James and myself when I say, "thank you for your witness to life, your witness to constancy of the truth of the Church and thank you for your witness to the dignity of the Priesthood." .. I can never put into words what you mean to me, and what you have done for me by way of the example you have set for me in both the defense of life and in my future priesthood. - Eric Bowman

Thank you Fr. Frank for all your work over the past 20+ years to advocate for the unborn babies around the world and your tireless efforts to overturn the horrible Roe v Wade decision erroneously made almost 50 years ago. I am proud and honored to be part of your Priests for Life and MAGAfor life movements. We prolife Catholics and all faiths must bond together to defeat the radical left and overturn Roe v Wade. God bless you always Fr. Pavone, my prayers are always for you and please pray for me also. God bless America!!! - Richard
May God bless you. May His will be done here on earth through God loving people like yourself, Fr. Frank. I will humbly, keep you in my prayers. All and only through our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen. - Paul
Thank you for your years of encouragement and leadership. Knowing what you went through you protect preborn lives has helped to think that there is hope someday in this battle. May God continue to anoint you, protect you and cause His hope to dwell in your heart forever. - Robert
God Bess you! I am a brand new Christian. Though I know Father Franke Pavone is Catholic, he's part of what brought me to God. - Jackie
Father Frank, you are doing an incredible job! I came across you months before the election. I enjoy and appreciate your intelligence on life!! And certainly the great work that you do to save the unborn! .... Remain courageous and of sound mind. You are an inspiration to us all and I thank God for you.

I am so appreciative you took the time to answer my questions. Knowing that Fr. Pavone provides services even when certain organizations do not have the funds to pay helps explain why the administrative costs are proportionately higher than I would expect them to be. I will continue to support his ministry. Blessings to all of you for doing God’s work on this earth! - Ginger


I have been a monthly supporter for a long time and you have inspired me to help the defenseless babies unborn and now born; how?
I am fostering a medically fragile infant with hopes to adopt her if that becomes an option. This infant has spent 5 of her 8 months in the hospital due to neglect and a traumatic brain injury; as a nurse I saw this happen often in the NYC hospitals. Thank You for your pro life message and supporting our pro- life president. With Gratitude, - Elizabeth
