Easter Sunday Message from Fr. Frank Pavone
Dear Friends of Life,
The Lord is Risen, Alleluia!
On this day of days, on this feast of feasts, we
rejoice in the victory of life! This victory is not just a hope; it is a
God, in Christ, has destroyed the power of death! In all its forms -- including
abortion -- death can never have the final word!
This is why we are pro-life, and the victory of
this day is the starting point and foundation of the pro-life movement. The gift
of life, placed in our hands today, is what we proclaim, celebrate, and serve.
We announce and apply this victory to every segment of our
society. We say to our culture, in effect, "Hurry up! God has accomplished
His work, and we must run to share in its fruit! God's design for life is
unfolding in a definitive way, and this is our chance to catch hold of it and
participate in it!"
To all of you who defend life, I wish a Happy
Easter with a special joy, knowing that I speak to those who understand Easter
most profoundly and live it most intensely. Never doubt the victory of life, and
always find in the resurrection your strength to continue defending this
greatest of all gifts!
I am remembering you and your intentions in my
-- Fr. Frank Pavone
