Green light for new pro-life priest order

.- Fr. Frank Pavone, head of the group, Priests for Life, has announced that a new priestly society--one devoted to work in the pro-life movement--has been given the go-ahead from Bishop John Yanta, head of the Diocese of Amarillo Texas, to begin work immediately.

The society, called the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life, was authorized by Bishop Yanta and Reverend Michael Colwell, JCL, Vicar General and Chancellor for the Diocese on December 12th to “officially and in the name of the Church” train priests, deacons, and lay missionaries, to, as the group put it, “advance the dignity of human life.”
 
A delighted Fr. Pavone called the occasion “historic.” “Never before”, he said, “has there been a community within the Church specifically dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.”

He explained that “The society’s work will involve a broad spectrum of pro-life action, including motivating people to elect pro-life candidates, lobbying for the confirmation of Supreme Court Justices, and advocating for people like Terri Schiavo.”

“We will not tire”, he promised, “until the mass-killing of children ends, and every human life, from conception to natural death, is valued and protected in America.”
