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! -- 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.

Dear Father Frank, I just wanted to write to you and tell you what a wonderful priest and person you are I admire you so much thank you so much for all the work you do for the unborn. Please take wonderful care period. Love. Marian H 

Dear Father Frank, Please know that you have been and continue to be in my daily prayers along with all at PFL and the pro-life movement in general. Please keep fighting for the unborn, the healing of families impacted by abortion as well as for the election of humble, righteous leaders who respect all life. Thank you also for personally strengthening my faith and guiding my husband and me through this tumultuous time in our nation's history. Heartfelt sympathy upon the recent death of your father and may the Lord's best blessings be showered over you as you continue to lead the fight against abortion. Take care, be well and know that we love you. - Sincerely Jacqueline and Don Pennsylvania

Dear Fr Frank, 

It was a pleasure and a privilege to meet you at the Cathedral in San Francisco on Saturday [Jan 21, 2023]. As I mentioned, I’m a pediatrician and quite honestly, I avoided conflict and put off focusing on abortion as an issue during my career, choosing to focus instead on child abuse issues. 

Your work is really giving me the courage, now that I have more time, to help educate and advocate for a culture of life. I hope to be working with the Bella Clinic staff in San Francisco as they open their doors this year. 

I am praying for your ministry and am grateful for your leadership. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

With prayers and gratitude,

Father, thank you for all you do in the prolife movement. You and all those who are a part of “Priests for Life” are doing God’s work and encourage me to continually make a stand for those who are marginalized no matter the cost. This is the fight I choose to take part in. Thank you again Priests for Life!
Thank you for helping me to become a more devout Catholic and defender of life. - Edgar

When he came to North Dakota to give a talk to the Right to Life foundation, I was stunned to see a cleric speaking so boldly and passionately about the Gospel of Life. I asked him a deeply controversial question, and he didn’t shy away from giving a profound, authentically Catholic answer in response, despite being in front of a large crowd. At last, I had encountered a priest who wasn’t afraid to be openly pro-life to the core. Listening to him talk confirmed my decision to become Catholic, after all. – Amanda Evinger - Fr. Pavone has inspired me to speak about my journey to being a happy pro-life Catholic (published at LifeSite News)

Congratulations and thank you for your entire priesthood being dedicated to this important movement. You are loved my brother. Look forward to seeing you again. May our blessed mother continue to guide you.

Deacon Steven P. Marcus

I'm very grateful to all of you who have persevered new and old in the Pro Life movement. This is the critical issue of our day, every generation has one. This is ours. Some of us have been trudging forward with this for very many decades now.  I have my whole priesthood my almost 40 years as a priest, been actively involved. Father Pavone, of course your outstanding in that. So keep going. We have to keep moving forward with this. - Archbishop Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco 

this is a cross that was given to me by Saint John Pope St. John Paul II ...and I'd like to use this cross to ask God's abundant blessings upon you, your ministry and all of our brother priests and bishops, and all people who are working for this primary issue which is life especially the most fragile, the most innocent of all life, the unborn.

Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus. We ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit upon all these beautiful efforts of Priests for Life, of all priests and bishops, and all our laypeople. Inspire us Dear Holy Spirit, to have hearts that are burning with fire of love for this ministry.

And bless all those who support us. May the blessing of almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit descend upon us and remain forever Amen.  and Mary our mother, the mother of life. Intercede for us. Pray for us. Guide us and direct us. amen - Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop Emeritus of San Angelo, Texas 

But I encourage you and pray for you and encourage, many more priests and people bishops to become involved in this vitally important ministry. - Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop Emeritus of San Angelo, Texas 
Well, every priest I'm sure must be for life. The thing is what we need to do Is be much more expressive about this, because that's what we're about. We’re about human life. Jesus became one of us. The Great Priest. Precisely to touch all, and he's calling all of us bishops and priests -- So I encourage you brother Priests to become much more active in preaching and also in taking action at a local level. - Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop Emeritus of San Angelo, Texas 
...perhaps our bishops, in my estimation, haven't spoken as strongly as they should have as a body on this issue. But I know that other pro-life people like yourself and Alveda King say this is the preeminent issue because it's dealing with human life and the most precious human life in the whole world, the unborn, tiny little images of God that are being destroyed in abortion. - Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI, Bishop Emeritus of San Angelo, Texas 
I encourage all those who are with you in your ministry. All the people who work at Priest for life. I want to thank them for the work they've done over these many years. Thank you for all the materials you provide. I want to really sincerely thank the benefactors who might be watching right now. Telling them to please continue to support Priest for life and anybody may be watching this for the first time that has not been involved thinking well maybe it's too late to get involved. No, it's never too late to get involved. So all you have to do is probably go to the priest for life website, find out how you can get involved, how you can contribute and then just get out there and don't be afraid. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services in the United States
...we have to have the courage to teach and to preach the truth. And if sometimes that makes people uncomfortable or they think we're being too political well, that's not something we can be concerned with, but we have to preach the truth and we have to talk about these issues for every issue, every, every election. So Priest for Life can help us to walk that maybe minefield where we are not political as far as partisan or who to tell telling people who to vote for. But we're certainly going to let people know what the Candidates stand for. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services in the United States
And as I've quoted you many times, Father Frank, I know you know that, where I say to people, as Father Frank says, we need to make abortion not only illegal, but unthinkable. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services in the United States
And when it comes to Priest for Life, I often say, well, every priest is a priest for life. But your particular ministry gives a much-needed material that's so freely available through your various websites and what not. That you give the material to the priests and the deacons so that they can be better suited to preach with more good information, solid, solid homilies and you've been sharing those for very many years. That's why I've supported your ministry 'cause I've used those materials myself for my preaching. I would encourage other priests to use those materials because I know that your desire is for every Catholic priest to be a priest for life and to use the materials that you've gathered over all these many years with the support and the great generosity of your benefactors to make these materials available so that priests can feel like they have the information that they need, the resources that they need so that it can make their job just a little bit easier rather than reinvent the wheel because you get so many homilies for so many different Sundays of the year. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services in the United States
I think that Teresa and her and her husband Kevin, their ministry of Rachel's Vineyard is so critically important and I know that they're all over the world now giving these retreats. I'm incredibly proud of their ministry and quite frankly, I was overjoyed when they joined forces with you 'cause I knew that would have an incredible effect that would just magnify both of your ministries and make it really one Ministry of Healing. Very, very proud of them. Very, very proud. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services 
Father Frank. ... I've been a big fan of your ministry for many, many years, as you know. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services 
...these weekend [Rachel's Vineyard] retreats can bring them incredible healing and knowing God's forgiveness. So, I thoroughly recommend this ministry. Every priest needs to know about this so they can recommend these retreats to people they have in confession so that they can bring that healing of God's mercy that is available to every single one of us. - Bishop Joseph Coffey, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese for Military Services 

March 15, 2021

Dear Priests for Life Family,

My name is Bishop Joe Coffey. Originally a priest ordained for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I spent 19 years on Active Duty as a Navy Chaplain and currently serve as the Vicar for Veterans Affairs for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA based in Washington DC. I regularly visit our Veterans and Catholic Priest Chaplains in 152 VAMC’s (Veterans Affairs Medical Centers) around our great Country.

I have had the great privilege of personally knowing several members of the Priests for Life network for over 30 years especially Fr Frank Pavone, Fr Denis Wilde, OSA and Kevin and Theresa Burke. As a seminarian, I heard Fr Pavone and Fr Wilde give inspiring Pro Life homilies and as a priest, I have happily made use of the readily made available pro life homily helps for Priests and Deacons  to give inspiring homilies. I am always trying to encourage seminarians and priests to get more involved with what the majority of the Bishops of the USCCB called the “pre-eminent issue” of our time. As a priest I have participated in life changing retreats organized by  Rachels’ Vineyard by hearing the Confessions of and give absolution to women and men who deeply regret decisions they felt they had no other choice to make. To see people know they are truly forgiven has never failed to inspire me and to be grateful to our Lord for my vocation as a priest.

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

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

God bless you!


Bishop Joe Coffey

Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA

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

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

-- 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.

I am still hearing favorable comments about your talks and how you raised the consciousness among the clergy about the importance of promoting Pro-Life activities.
-- 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.

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

As the National Director of Priests for Life, and one who recently began a new community of priests permanently dedicated to full time pro-life work, Father Frank Pavone is one of the most prominent Pro-Life leaders in the nation. – Most Rev. Robert P. Maginnis, D.D., Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia, Honorary Chairman of the Catholic Leadership Committee
The Apostolate of these groups is very important to the work of the church, particularly in keeping our priests informed and focused on the priority of life issues... Be assured of his prayers and support for this venture

-- Most Reverend Eusebius J. Beltran, Archbishop of Oklahoma City

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

Dear Father Frank: I have many reasons to be grateful to God for my vocation. I also have many reasons to be grateful to you, I will ask God to give you the grace of deep faith and hope in His love. Thanks for your continued support, and especially your prayers!

-- Most Reverent Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, Washington, D.C.

Dear Father Pavone: Thank you for your service to the Church and your efforts to protect human life.
-- Most Reverend Thomas J. Rodi, Archbishop of Mobile, AL

I am very honored to offer my own approval and endorsement of Priests for Life so that many of our brother priests in the Dioceses and Archdioceses across the country may come to know about your outstanding work and to embrace it as a very special and personal apostolate for themselves.
-- 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. As the personal representative of His Holiness Pope John Paul II in this great country, I can assure you of the Holy Father's deep appreciation for your noble efforts and initiatives on behalf of the Gospel of Life. Invoking the Lord's abundant blessings upon you and your dedicated collaborators, I remain, with cordial greetings, sincerely yours in Christ.
-- Archbishop Gabriel Montalvo, (former) Apostolic Nuncio to the United States

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

Protecting the unborn and defending the most vulnerable in our society is at the very heart of the Church’s mission, and she commends PFL/Missionaries of the Gospel of Life for their many laudable contributions toward that end
-- 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: Thank you very much for your kind remembrance of my anniversary of Episcopal ordination of 34 years ago! I am grateful for your thoughtfulness and prayers and for all you do for God’s little one’s. God Bless you and your important work for God.

Sincerely, Bishop James Clifford Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton, PA

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

I continue to be grateful to all those involved in Rachel's Vineyard ministry for bringing hope, healing and reconciliation to so many within the Archdiocese of Newark.
-- 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.

Hi Fr Frank thank you for your Homilies, I did go to mass this morning, but always like your mass and homily. - Debbie Graham

I can’t tell you how much we love you and how I pray for you several times a day seven days a week. I do the prayers and mass with divine mercy Church however included for the priest for life is you I’ll never forget you I’ll never forget right side broadcast network for bringing the Catholics to you years ago. And how you fought to teach the unknowing the truth . God bless you Father - Angel

Fr. Frank,

In the early 2000s my husband and I started watching Mass on EWTN and Mother Angelica. One day, you presided and preached at a daily Mass and truly changed my opinion of the pro-choice argument, especially abortion. During the Terry Schiavo debacle, you preached about her death; I'll never forget your description of the vase of flowers in her room filled with water while she was dying of dehydration. 

Since then, I've attended the March for Life and participated in most of the 40 Days for Life campaigns in our Diocese (the only year I missed was the year my husband died). I had the honor of meeting you when you spoke at our Diocese several years ago. My voting record has turned 90 degrees as well, much to the chagrin of my family! My rule of thumb in voting is candidates' stand on life issues, especially abortion.

Thank you for leading the way and being a true "influencer."

God's blessings on you and your ministry.


Memphis, TN

Frank Pavone, 
My wife and I recently watched your video interview on Brietbart News.  How refreshing to hear a Catholic leader address the ills of our country today; in fact, similar to a voice crying in the wilderness! We are not Catholic but admire your courage to speak out in a world that has not only gone mad but mute.  Good bless you as you go out and come in. - Kenny N. 

Wow…God really works in mysterious ways! I was , almost verbatim, talking to my husband about the exact subject of your homily. I am going to take it as an affirmation! You are such a blessing! Thank you Father Pavone for all your hard work with the unborn. The most innocent and silent majority. You give them a voice! What an inspiration.you are. .. Please keep up the fantastic work you are doing. It is much needed. The whole world is watching! You are sending a powerful message that so many are not willing to address! - Wendy K

Thank you, Father Frank for explaining this so perfectly! It is so important for people to understand the sabotage that our own government is committing against us. - Kristene K.
We are literally here in order to attain salvation. Profound, Father Frank! Thank you so much for your homily and your ministry. I appreciate you and your encouragement. God bless you - Lisa C.
I’m glad to find out about your programme and I acknowledge the fact that you are one of the Catholic TVprogrammes which has made me understand, finally, that abortion is evil and a gruesome process. - Olar O., NY

Watching Oceans of Mercy from the Philippines….I am a loyal follower of Father Frank Pavone programs and also your whole team of Priest for life... Just last Week as well I was able to convince a woman not to commit the abortion because of unplanned pregnancy and accept the child as a big blessing of new generation of life and happy to know that she is now attending the different programs of Priest for Life online just like this as enlightenment and counseling and a commitment to serve God and others as well. - John R.

Let us pray for all our holy priests especially Father Frank for all he has done and is doing to stop abortion. He is a strong man and has given so much for the Right to life. Just want you to know Fr. Frank that you are appreciated and loved.
We are not Catholic. We attended a Protestant church (United Methodist) while raising our children. We left it circa 2010, when it became undeniable that the Bible had no large place there, social issues, almost exclusively, were the focus. ..We have not yet found a church home. ... We Want a pastor more similar (or just exactly like, would be good) Fr. Pavone. I even consider converting, but I am not yet sure there are more like Fr. Pavone. I LOVE YOU FR. PAVONE. Thank you for your good work and for your genuine courage.

Mr. Kemper, I found you through Jim Chaffin.  I like you am A die hard Crucified fan. I saw his post about your podcast. I feel in love.  I am a huge Pro-life supporter/ Anti-abortion. I knew of rock 4 life never realized you started it. I just want to say Thanks for the encouragement and inspiration to keep speaking truth about the evil of Abortion. I live in Ohio. So please know you have a fan in the mid-west.  God bless you.

This is an empowering sermon presented straight from the heart of GOD to us. Amen. Cyndi B .

Indeed Fr Pavone is not only outstanding in the prolife movement ! I believe because of His courageous unfailing. Adamant fighting makes Him a living Saint. Like Mother Teresa was! - Al M


Father, My wife and I, with our daughter 13 and our son 12, have been watching daily Holy Mass with you for nearly a year. We appreciate your reverence and your clear teaching of our faith and your strong, dedicated stance to defend life, especially of the child in its mothers womb. We also recognize, and are grateful for, the good work Pres. Trump has done in America and the world. Keep up the great work Father. Many prayers from Canada. God Bless you and your team. Stephen P. and Family
Good morning! I am making this donation because I want to support your cause. Fr. Pavone, I find immeasurable comfort in your sermons, prayers, and support of the unborn, how we should strive to live our lives and because you support President Trump. He is our rightfully, duly elected President. He cares about our country and  about our people. Some people can't see past his strictness, but he is like a father figure who loves his children and wants the very best for them. I give this donation with joy and I pray our country, and the world, will soon be enjoying a life of peace, prosperity and much joy! I have one request, please. I have 2 adult children and my daughter has not found Our Dear Lord yet. Will you please pray that God opens her heart and mind to accept Him? My son has accepted Our Dear Lord wholeheartedly. He has multiple disabilities including autism and epilepsy, but he is one of the happiest people I know. I ask that you you please pray for him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for all you do and may God bless you all! Peace, prayers, and love, Theresa, PA

Thank you Fr. Pavone and Priests for Life for all you do for MAGA ProLife Movement! Praying Abortion to End daily!! God Bless You All and know that you are in my daily prayers.

Dear Father Frank, 
I had lost my faith over 10 years but found my faith again because of you Father Frank! I know God loves me and I'll never lose my faith again and it's all because of your videos and kind words.

GOD bless you and guide you.

Robert and Cisca, NY

Father Frank,
I appreciate you so much and watch almost 100% of the Masses and am getting better with the 3pm prayers. I like to do these prayers with everyone else, I like the unity. I just purchased the t shirt with the tree and bought 2 of your books and also donated 50 dollars for Priests For Life. I am grateful for your homilies and your evening programs. They go straight to my heart and there is so much to know. I have totally changed since Dec. and the Holy Spirit is close! I will do all I can including The Alerts 😊
Thank you so much,

I have been attending Holy Mass you offer every day. ..And I love your courage of speaking the truth because I have been hunger for the truth for long time. and I love President Trump energy and expose the truth of everything, He is my hero and I love your praying for him at every daily mass. So I have joined you too, praying for him every day. Fr. Pavone, thanks for your great work of protecting un-bon babies. I support your great works which come from love and the love of Jesus. Please pray for me and my 4 children who have lost trust in God for years. And I pray for you and your great works every day.  I send you my little contribution. My appreciation and thanks to you and yours teams. - Anh Kim


Fr. Frank,

I have known of your leadership and hard work with Priests for Life but was not aware of all your YouTube programs until the Bishops closed the churches last year. I pray with you at your daily Mass, rosary and Divine Mercy chaplet. I hope you continue long after the covid fiasco is gone. Although lack of faith, courage and common sense among so many Bishops and Cardinals is so depressing, I have been inspired by some Priests' boldness in preaching the truths of Christ’s teachings as well how to faithfully support President Trump's prolife, profamily agenda.

Thank you sincerely for all you are doing.  I am a 77-year-old mother of six, grandmother of 14, cradle catholic and retired labor delivery nurse. I retired in 2011 as nurse manager of Holy Family Prenatal care, a part of the Elizabeth’s New Life Center.  You came to Dayton on year to lead the Rosary in a Jericho walk around the abortion center next to Elizabeth's. The [abortion] center closed!

I wish we could do a massive Jericho walk around the capital. the evil and lies coming from the current administrations is breathtaking. - Jane


Hello Father Frank, I just ordered your book in hopes of you signing it, you mentioned last night you were doing so in your daily routine, Faithful listener I pray for a speedy recovery for you as well. I always listen to your mass everyday on YouTube and I think you should be the pope, much love and many blessings.❤️ - Karie
I personally was so touched by father Frank Pagone’s testimony with Greg Kelly on Newsmax on May 6, 2021 and  for myself as a former Catholic I was in total agreement with him and his teaching. For his hearts cry for the unborn child. 
I just pray that many others were as moved as I was I’m going to continue praying for this man of God who I feel the Lord has picked to be used for Gods glory. Please continue on as I claim Ephesians 6 versus 10 to 16 putting on the full armor of God each day over him.
Love from a sister in Christ Barbara, Vero beach Florida

Dear Fr. Pavone, I love watching all your Holy Masses.  They connect the dots of our faith and bring the Word into my heart with the truth and clarity of the Holy Spirit.  My wife, who is Pentecostal, also enjoys your homilies, and the prayer meetings to make America Great Again and the efforts of President Donald Trump.   Thank you for these wonderful gifts of faith.  Your in Christ, Walter & Olivia 
@frfrankpavone enjoyed watching you on @gregkelly. You renew my faith in the Catholic Church! - Alycia

Dear Father Pavone, My family and I are praying for your successful surgery and quick recovery. We need you very much. Please, accept this donation of $100 to use as you see fit. Also, we would like to donate the money in honor of our children...and ask to keep them in your prayers. You inspire us to keep going in the mission for life. Thank you for all you and your staff do. God Bless you, Father. Sincerely, The Allison's

Dear Father Frank, I am praying for your speedy and complete recovery. You nourish me every day with your scriptural homilies, and I stay informed of the most important issues facing this country. Thank you for all you have done and will continue doing to bring the culture of life to full fruition. Kathy

My mom is so thankful for your Masses and sermons. They have bouyed her spirits! Thank you, R. O'Rourke 

P.S. Not if you could only get Joe Biden to see!

My name is Anita .. I look forward to your messages everyday and thank you for fighting for our nation and our people.  May God bless you and make you our next pope!!  This one does nothing for us but push socialism and berate our president [Trump].  I go to church every Sunday with three of my grandchildren and listen to the parishioners say how unhappy they are with this pope.  You bring back the pride and love of God and country Bishop Fulton J Sheen instilled in us.  Thank God we have your words to look forward to in these troubled times.  I don't have the ability to give more than I do on Sunday but please know that I am so thankful for your outpouring of love for the those beautiful babies destroyed every day by Satan and his followers.  Thank you over and over again!!

Thank you for all your doing to promote the sanctity of life! Never stop! United in prayers with you and all of the Priest’s For Life and all your efforts! 

Ms King. I just wanted to thank you for representing a greater cause than just race. It is the Kingdom of God that is heard when you speak. I am saddened that so many in our country do not know.  Peace Grace and Safety to you. 

Love Fr. Pavone, his online Masses and services, his unwavering support of President Trump, and his inspiring work combatting abortion. – Anne K., OK
My husband and I follow the daily mass since January. This contribution is our mass gift. We are thankfull to Fr. Pavone and his commitement to life. His daily homilies and prayers help us live our catholic faith more fully. Now that they reopened the churches in Quebec city, we are attending mass at church on Sundays and Thursdays. The other days of the week we are at mass with Fr. Pavone through YouTube. We are grateful that he prays every day for President Donald Trump, keeping his memory alive. God bless all the team of Priests for Life! Ana & Mike G.

Hi Father!

Last week on one of your nightly broadcasts when we were discussing how often you travel (pre-covid) I mentioned my brother being a pilot and how he would love to have you as a passenger :-).  He is a pilot on Delta and flies both domestically as well as internationally. 

I promise I will continue spreading our message on Social Media. I push as hard as I can and I am bullied almost every day for it, but it will never stop me from speaking for the unborn.


I could go on and on about how much I admire you but I'm sure you see my comments on FB during the broadcasts.  You are an inspiration to me and so many others.  God has blessed us with your presence and voice.

God be with you,

Cheryl F.

Hello Father,

My wife, Kathy, and Ivisited with you in Titusville .. you graciously stopped what you were doing and gave us 25 minutes of your time to provide us a personal tour of your facility. We really appreciated your genuineness and your generosity. Thank you.

We have enjoyed participating in your weekend Masses on youtube, and are really energized and inspired by your wonderful homilies---please keep up your wonderful work. We also enjoyed your recent interview with Theresa about your personal life experiences---very nicely done. (For us, videos come through easier on youtube although we occasionally go to your end abortion channel on ROKU.) We look forward to possibly seeing you again in Titusville.
Love and Peace,

Re: Stations of the Cross in 2020

Dear Kevin Burke and Fr. Frank Pavone,

Thank you for inviting me to share in that wonderful conference call!! What a privilege and an honor to unite with the Trump Campaign in prayer and in defense of life! The words you spoke as our prayer for the Stations were edifying and deeply conforting. Our president is blessed to have you! Unifying to save the unborn is a gift for the unborn and a very wise idea. Thank you for helping Catholics who want to break away from the mainstream liberal trends, such as green party and democratic party, and to support our president under the banner of Catholicism. You have given us an opportunity represent the Catholic faith as it truly should, in support of our pro-life president, who is the only moral vote this year. Thank you so much.

Subject: Fwd: Fr. Pavone Gives the Most Inspiring, Informative and Encouraging Update on this Election!!!!

I have to tell you that I sent out Fr. Pavones fireside like chat last night and I am getting several that are sending it out and posting it. Please thank Fr. Pavone as he is bringing great encouragement to priests and laymen alike. The enthusiasm for his inspiring and informative chat is making a profound impact. God bless you all at Priests for Life!!!!!

My son and I have been joining your prayer meetings on RSBN and we are so encouraged by them. Knowing that we are praying with so many other Christians for our nation and our president and hearing your updates on our president's legal battle continues to bring us hope. Thank you for leading these prayer meetings and for all you do for the unborn. The Jones Family, FL
Thank you for posting Father Pavone’s stuff every night on Facebook. My husband was down about something this week and then there he was explaining everything and he loved it and was so encouraged.
The Catholic Church needed the voice of truth today. You spoke for all the faithful. You spoke for the unborn. We all thank you for your fight to defend our church, the sanctity of human life, religious freedoms and our country. We will pray for you and more truly courageous priests like you. Our son is one. God Bless you and give you the fortitude you need. Bartie L. 
Father Frank,
From this point forward, I will only be supporting your group of Priests for Life.
This is why:
Open Letter.
I am nobody.  And I am everybody.
I returned to the church in my late 30's.  I am now 60.  I have to STRUGGLE to be Catholic.  
Recently, I found Father Frank Pavone.  He spoke like a Priest is supposed to speak.  I was watching him on EWTN and they BANNED HIM.  For being Pro Life.   For Being Pro American.  For being Pro Trump.  I now ONLY watch Father Frank and "Priests for Life."  I am going to go OUT of MY WAY to make sure my money does not go to the Catholic Church.  I will be sending any funds I would normally donate to Catholic Charities and my "speed" church on television on Sundays to the Priests for Life.
Every week I hear about how Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are "good catholics"   and how "devout" they are.
I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy.  I am exhausted by the rhetoric and the language they change to make abortion seem like it is "health care" and "a human right"  I am tired of fighting the Catholic Church and the Bishops who do not support the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  
I see they are getting to receive communion and honestly, it hurts me to my core.
I see them doing this and throwing their Catholicism around like it was a scout badge.
Like I said, I am nobody.  
You do not need to respond to my email.  
But know this: I am also everybody who is awake to the fact that The Pope is a liar (and frankly, he seems more concerned with the "environment and the planet" than he is with the people on the planet and their souls.  Americans leaving the Catholic Church feel he is a communist and I am not sure they are not right) and The Catholic Bishops are a lie and their hypocrisy in the name of the "almighty dollar" is seen by everyone- not just me.  
Thank you for listening.   I hope you will read the links I have attached. God Bless you.
Nobody important. – Ronnie B.

Hi, Fr. Frank
Thank you for your dedication with the pro-life movement, and thank you for your daily Masses. …Being able to follow you on youtube has really helped through these difficult times. I would like to help out financially as much as I can for your Masses. – Deborah, G, FL 

Fr. Pavone,

I have been watching your videos and they are truly inspiring.  I am glad to see that there are still Godly Priests out there. I pray for your strength and protection every day.  Keep up God’s work always. Vivo Cristo Rey – Jose B., Texas

Dear Father Pavone:

Thank you very much for your kind letter dated January 31, and your dedication to my wife and me, which you handwrote in one of the books we have recently purchased from your website. Much appreciated.

We were also delighted to learn that you plan to tum your transcribed homilies into a book. This is an excellent idea! As a way of expressing our support, we have just made another donation…. We definitely look forward to seeing the book in print, which will be of considerable spiritual benefit to readers as much as it was to us when listening to your homilies during your televised Masses.

Thanks also for your courageous and truthful assessment of political developments. Over this last year, and especially during the elections period, my wife and I have contributed several articles, in Italian and English, to a couple of biogs, along the clear lines you set in your homilies.

All best wishes, to your family, community and you, for the Lenten season from us both!

Dr. M.R

Thank you Father Pavone for all that you have given me spiritually and educationally since signing up to Priests for Life. I have utilized your material sent everything to my Senators and congressman, passed along the information to my pro-life church group and continually your homilies and prayers inspire and deepen my love for life. I am speaking up more and will continue to support this work. Thank you for making God visible to the world. Cindy
Thank you and may God bless you for all you do.  You have inspired us and encouraged us throughout these difficult days and months. I wouldn’t have made it without your encouragement and belief in the right to life and President Donald J Trump! We really need him back in the Presidency!  I pray the Rosary daily and attend daily Mass for this cause. Otherwise, Biden and the Democrats will continue their evil agenda. Thanks so much and may God keep you strong and healthy! – Angela C

I was a pro-choice (aka pro-baby killing) atheist when I started watching Fr. Frank  just last year and that is no longer the case. I am now a God fearing, pro-life woman. God bless you, him, and your entire team.

Hi Janet and everyone at Priests For Life!!!

I am writing to you to say thank you for all you do Priests For Life is such a wonderful organization I donate and I enjoy watching and praying with Father Pavone's Mass everyday amen!!!

I just watched Defending Life. Thank you for this wonderful program especially now with this new administration who are pro abortion we need to lift them all up in prayer to the Holy Spirit to minister to them and change their hearts and minds amen!!!

I enjoyed your program this evening on EWTN it was very interesting to see how someone who had a secular outlook on life can also see the need for a pro-life attitude and saving the lives of unborn babies amen!!!

Janet, I am enclosing a screenshot of you to say you look fabulous. You go girl. You have given me the incentive to ...look as good as you do now that you have taken the time to take care of yourself because you always take care of everyone else amen!!!

Thank you Jesus for Janet and Father Frank and everyone at Priests For Life for all they do for those of us who enjoy this channel and for all the babies they have saved and will save amen!!!

Through the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus name we pray amen!!! God bless you!!! - Dawn

..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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Timoteo, OH
Father Frank, I think we all thank GOD for the work you do and being a General in the war against abortion. Many have tried to silence you and your ministry, but yet rises to newer heights.

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.

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

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

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

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!

Joan, PA
Dear Fr. Frank, congratulations, I am so happy for you. No one is so eager to take on this huge task of leadership. God bless. You are so needed! Love and prayers.

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

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.

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, 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

Cardinal Burke's praise for Janet Morana's book: Everything You Need to Know About Abortion for Teens
A letter of endorsement from Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke for Janet Morana's book Everything You Need to Know About Abortion for Teens
"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.

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.

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
Thank you, Father Frank, for your dedication and tireless work to build a Culture of Life. May God Bless you with his grace and peace throughout the coming New Year. - Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend James D. Conley, S.T.L., Auxiliary Bishop of Denver

- Most Reverend David A. Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh

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.
