NEW YORK To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of Priests for Life and to highlight its core mission of empowering clergy to be passionate advocates for the unborn, Father Frank Pavone, National Director, has released today his newest book, Proclaiming the Message of Life: Weekly Reflections from the Lectionary (Servant Books, 2016)
The book guides clergy and laity through the pro-life themes found in the readings of every Sunday of all three liturgical years.
Proclaiming the Message of Life provides an overview of the Scriptural, doctrinal and liturgical bases for preaching the pro-life message, presents homily hints for Sundays and holy days, and articulates the pro-life dimensions of the priesthood itself.
Defending the dignity of the human person is not a task added on to our ministry but rather one inseparable from it and flowing from its very heart, Father Pavone writes in a chapter on The Heart of the Priesthood.
The preaching tips focus on abortion as the preeminent issue, for reasons that both this book and an entire body of Church documents identify and discuss.
Another section of the book also reviews dozens of common fears or hesitations clergy have regarding preaching on abortion.

Good words. Looks like a worthwhile read. Thanks for posting.
The devil can mimic a humble man but never an obedient one. - St. Faustina
That’s a really profound insight, and inescapably true.
