2009 March For Life -- Special Message From Fr. Frank Pavone

Priests for Life
Gospel of Life Ministries

January-February 2009 Newsletter

December 30, 2008

As we enter a New Year, there's no doubt in my mind that there's one single force that can and will defeat the power of abortion in our world.

That is the Church, the Body of Christ, the fellowship of believers throughout the world united with the One who conquered death.

And that's why I'm glad you're part of the Priests for Life family. As the world's largest pro-life organization, we continue to focus on activating and mobilizing the Church, starting with the clergy, so that the Lord's promise, "the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church," will continue to be evident to all.

Below you'll find our January-February newsletter. Along with reading it yourself, would you be so kind as to bring it to the attention of your pastor?

Looking ahead, there are important events in January with the annual commemoration of Roe vs. Wade.

I'll be in Washington, of course, for the March for Life, and you can find details of my schedule at www.priestsforlife.org.

In particular, I urge you to join me for morning prayer with people of all denominations on the 22nd, and then at the conclusion of the march, join me in giving prayerful support to the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign who will stand in front of the US Supreme Court and give testimony to the pain and healing that followed their abortion experiences. (If you've lost a child by abortion, or want to help someone who has, please visit www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org to join the campaign.)

On the 24th, join me for the West Coast Walk for Life to take place in San Francisco. I'll address the gathering at the conclusion of the Walk.

Let me also provide you with the upcoming schedules for our own TV shows and Radio programming:
