An urgent message from Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life

October 30, 2012

Dear Friends,

I’m in Steubenville tonight, preaching at Franciscan University and speaking at an important pro-life rally later.

At the invitation of various Catholic groups, I will spend the next couple of days traveling in Ohio, preaching the Gospel of Life, energizing the People of Life in Ohio to make their voices heard, and …

… urging as many people as I possibly can to VOTE PRO-LIFE ON NOVEMBER 6 and in every election!

To help support this last-ditch effort – and all of Priests for Life’s work in this final week before Americans cast their ballots next Tuesday …

… click here and make as large a contribution as you possibly can!

As the mainstream media promotes the lie that opposing abortion is an “extremist” position, it is critically important that the people of America be reminded of the following facts:

1. Our own Declaration of Independence is founded on this pro-life principle:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator

with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are LIFE, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

2. That the first of mankind’s God-given unalienable Rights is the RIGHT TO LIFE!

3. That the RIGHT TO LIFE is the fundamental human right, and the one upon which all other human rights are based. Without the protection of the right to life, no other discussion of human rights can continue.

4. And finally, that abortion corrupts our whole society and retards progress on all the other issues that concern them … including the economy!

In addition, I will re-state the points Cardinal Renato Martino made in an interview I conducted with him about politics and elections.

You can go to www.ElectionVideos.org to watch the entire interview.

As we approach Election Day, some – even within the Church – will distort and hide the fact that the Church (and common sense, by the way) make it crystal clear that the right to life is the most foundational good to preserve in any election.

Without life, we don’t have anything.

That’s the message I will be delivering to Ohioans throughout this week. Our other priests and Pastoral Associates are in other states — and on EWTN — preaching the same truth.

We need you standing alongside us as we go all out in this final week to make sure our fellow Americans take their pro-life values with them when they enter the voting booth next Tuesday.

The other action I desperately need you to take is to PRAY!!!

Storm heaven with your prayers!!!

Ask the Holy Spirit to descend upon me and our entire Priests for Life team so that we might preach the Gospel of Life with power and conviction!!!

Ask Him to fill the hearts of all those who will hear our preaching and inspire them to go out and renew the face of the earth!!!

And know that even as you pray for me, so I pray for you. I pray that God fill you with His grace and wisdom as you go about preaching the Gospel of Life in your own community.

Together let us do all we can to convince our fellow Americans to VOTE PRO-LIFE on November 6!

Thank you. May God bless you. And may God bless America.

Sincerely,

Video: Father Frank Pavone and Cardinal Martino on the duty of Catholics to vote.

In this video at FrFranksBlog.com Cardinal Renato Martino gives us clarity and courage to say what has to be said: No Catholic can vote for a candidate or party that contradicts basic moral principles.

Priest to Catholic voters: Stop being stupid!

Catholics, even though we live in a country and are citizens of that country, have a higher calling and responsibility to God and to our neighbor to promote God’s truth even when others hate it, reject it, and hate us for proclaiming it. We are citizens in an earthly realm, but more importantly we are citizens of the new kingdom of heaven with Jesus as the Lord, His laws as our prime way of life, and called to live them and to promote them even to unbelievers.

We live in a society where many people with power, possessions, and prestige are promoting ideas that are not founded in Christ. In order to promote their ideas over ours, they tell us we must stay in our churches, keep our religion to ourselves, and that their idea of separation of the church from the state (which does not exist in our American Constitution as they say it does) trumps any ideas we might have, so we have to shut up.

And Catholics sheepishly keep quiet and vote for men and women who promote evil.
