Bishop Roger Gries: Please Continue to Support Priests for Life


Priests for Life



STATEN ISLAND, NY – The Most Rev. Roger W. Gries O.S.B., Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Cleveland, has offered his ongoing support for Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and has asserted that the vital work of Priests for Life must continue.


In a letter dated Sept. 19, Bishop Gries wrote, “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.”


Noting that “Supporting abortion happens to be the politically correct stance to take these days,” Bishop Gries wrote, “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.


Bishop Gries asked for prayers for Father Pavone as he works with his bishop in the Diocese of Amarillo. “The work he had done since founding Priests for Life must continue as we face the future. Please continue to support Priests for Life.”


Bishop Gries is among the Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops who serve as advisers to 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,” the Bishop wrote. “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.”
