Father Frank Pavone At The 2012 March For Life

January 28, 2012

Why Father Frank is the heart and soul of the pro-life movement

The 2012 March For Life in Washington DC was the largest by far. Crowd estimates exceed 400,000 participants, topping last year’s march by at least 50,000. This was a powerful election year message to members of congress who are well aware of the overwhelming success of pro-life candidates in the 2010 mid-terms.

There were numerous well attended pro-life events over the three day event. Especially noteworthy was the appearance of Father Frank Pavone, Director of Priests For Life, who typically heightened enthusiasm and brightened spirits wherever he showed up.

This was Father Frank’s first public appearance following his recall to the Diocese Of Amarillo, TX by Bishop Patrick Zurek last September. The “recall” involved alleged, and so far completely unsubstantiated, charges of financial malfeasance at Priests For Life.

During his eighteen years of tireless effort at Priests For Life, Father Frank has gradually become the defacto head, the Father figure if you will, of the pro-life movement and he has been greatly missed. The following video clips from the March For Life show why Father Frank inspires such love and ardor among committed pro-lifers of all religions and even pro-life atheists.

The first clip is a general overview of the January 23 March For Life. At the 0:30 mark, Father Frank addresses the aspect of abortion that feminists and the abortion industry turn a callous blind eye to – the hundreds of thousands of women who have suffered horrible emotional scaring arising from guilt and depression as the result of undergoing an abortion.

Father Frank pointedly refers to healing for these victims as “one of the most powerful aspects of this March For Life… what abortion is doing to the women who undergo the procedure”.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Rachel’s Vineyard are abortion healing groups co-founded by Father Frank and are affiliated with Priests For Life

On Tuesday the 24th we relayed a Catholic World News report that though Father Frank had been given permission to attend this year’s March For Life, there will be no change in his restricted status and he will have to return to Amarillo.

Bishop Patrick Zurek told CWN that he is waiting for a disposition of Father Frank’s appeal to the Vatican – “There’s nothing new until Rome says something”. In the first interview below Father Frank conspicuously makes no mention of the standoff with Bishop Zurek.

Father Frank sounded notably more encouraging in the next interview with Life Site News – “My situation is improving… I expect the situation to be resolved relatively soon.”

But it is when Father Frank refers to his thousands of supporters who have expressed concern over Father Frank’s pain and frustration during his sequester in Amarillo, that Father Frank shows why he has become the heart and soul of the pro-life movement. “It is nothing compared to the pain I have each and every day from the destruction of these children by abortion.”


Over the last eighteen years thousands of babies have been rescued from the vacuum devices, surgical instruments and poisons of America’s abortion clinics, and thousands of women victimized by abortion have received healing, through Father Frank Pavone’s selfless commitment to Priests For Life.

As for Bishop Zurek’s seeming indifference to the potential damage to these efforts being done by his unexplained insistence to continue to confine Father Frank to Amarillo, TX…

Let’s just say it’s hard to understand the man’s “thinking”.

    Amen Mary!

    The situation with Bishop Zurek remains a standoff

    Father Frank has been advised by his Canon Lawyers not to meet with Bishop Zurek without a mediator present. Numerous respected clerical and lay members of the Church hierarchy have offered their services to mediate a meeting, but the Bishop remains adamant on a private meeting. Why?

    All Father Frank can do is await word on his appeal to the Vatican

    Precious lives are at stake and the pro-life movement is being adversely affected by this situation. We have tried to advocate patience, but it really has come to the point that Bishop Zurek should have to publicly justify continuing to sequester Father Frank in Amarillo

    Either the Bishop has evidence of wrong doing or he doesn’t

    Everyone please keep praying

    I saw what happened to Fr. Tom and Fr. John both Pro LIFE Priests. The timing for these two was just after they were involved in a book relating abortion to demonic worship, which it is and has been for centuries. Fr. Frank is being pursued by a Trojan horse in the Pro life movement. We must pray this is exposed to protect other pro life pastors. The St. Patrick’s Breast Plate Prayer is a Great Prayer used by St. Pat when the druids were offering their children in sacrifice to demonic spirits. Pray, FAST for Fr. Frank.

    Thanks for another comment Mary

    We are great admirers of Father Thomas Euteneuer and posted an article about his brilliant book Demonic Abortion when it was first published – http://radiantcross.org/Right-To-Life/2010/08/05/demonic-abortion/

    As you say, there is no doubt that abortion is rooted in pagan child sacrifice, and Satan certainly dances with glee every time a helpless infant, created in the image and likeness of God, is torn apart and his/her body discarded in a garbage pail

    Something that pro-choice Christians might want to think about in Church

    Here is a Wiki Source link to the beautiful prayer Mary mentions, Saint Patrick’s Breast Plate http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/St._Patrick%27s_Breastplate
