    Ron DeSantis’s “rapid response director”, Christina Pushaw, has viciously attacked a leading pro-life campaigner – Frank Pavone – for supporting Donald Trump, saying it “makes sense” that he is no longer a priest after a campaign by the far-left saw the Vatican defrock him for being an outspoken conservative.Pavone, 64, is one of the highest-profile pro-life campaigners in America, and as director of the Priests for Life group was one of the highest profile Catholic clergyman in America prior to being removed from the priesthood. Pushaw, despite claiming to be a pro-life Catholic, now says she had never heard of...

    Fr. Pavone has inspired me to speak about my journey to being a happy pro-life CatholicA convert, I grew somewhat scandalized by the fact that the U.S. Bishops and other diocesan priests did not seem to be outspokenly pro-life or even genuinely supporting those who were—that is, until I met Fr. Frank Pavone.Ultimately, the ruthless persecution of Fr. Frank Pavone and the desecration of his sacred priesthood calls for an extraordinarily courageous response from the faithful. Given this, upon hearing the news of beloved Fr. Pavone’s censure, I was prompted to write about some painful, personal details of my life...

    A Conversation with Fr. Frank Pavone — Part 3 — How Bishop Zurek (Amarillo) Abused Priests for Life While the Vatican Supported UsIn the previous interview, you told us that you and your fulltime pro-life ministry received a rather cold reception from Bishop Patrick Zurek when he came to Amarillo in 2008. Did things improve as time went on? No, they got worse, although with the wider Church, our support grew stronger than ever.But regarding Bishop Zurek, let me give you the example of when we saved Baby Joseph in Canada in 2011. You can see for details, but...
  • Vatican defrocks pro-Trump priest activist for anti-abortion posts

    The Vatican has defrocked a US-based priest for "blasphemous" social media posts and activism in support of former President Donald Trump. A letter to US bishops from the Vatican's US ambassador accused the priest, Frank Pavone, of "persistent disobedience". In 2016, Mr Pavone, who heads the anti-abortion group Priests for Life, put an aborted foetus on an altar and broadcast it online. His defrocking cannot be appealed. Defrocking - the process of being reduced to a 'lay state' in which clerical status is taken away from a priest - is among the harshest sanctions available in the Catholic church's canon...

    [Catholic Caucus] Frank "Cancels" FrankPro-life activist and national director of Priests for Life, Father Frank Pavone, 63, has been "removed from the priesthood" by the homosexualist Vatican under Francis Bergoglio.Father Pavone was accused of “blasphemous communications on social media” (sic!) and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop.”In a December 13 letter to U.S. bishops, homosexualist Nuncio Christophe Pierre wrote that the Clergy Congregation issued the decision on November 9, writes CNA.In keeping with Francis' mercy ideology, there is “no possibility of appeal.” Not surprisingly, the trial against Pavone was conducted in secrecy behind Father Pavone's back...

    Pope Francis laicizes America’s best loved pro-life priest Fr. Frank PavoneAccording to the pope's U.S. representative, the order for dismissal from the priesthood was a result of 'blasphemous communications on social media' and 'persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop,' but Pavone said he had no knowledge of the Vatican's decision. America’s best loved pro-life priest, Fr. Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life as well as the President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, has apparently been laicized (dismissed from the priesthood) by order of Pope Francis.Catholic News Agency (CNA) reported that a December...

    The Trump administration is at it again, praise God! On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice launched a Religious Liberty Task Force at a summit for religious freedom. The goal of the task force is to implement the religious liberty guidance, a result of an executive order issued by President Trump in May of 2017. The President’s 2017 executive order declared that “it is the policy of the administration to protect and vigorously promote religious liberty.” It also “directs the IRS to use maximum enforcement discretion to alleviate the burden of the Johnson Amendment.” (The ominous...

    "It might have been" are not always the saddest words. Sometimes, they're the most horrifying. Hillary Clinton in September will come out with a new book called "What Happened," about her loss to Donald Trump. That got me thinking: What would have happened had she won? For instance, what if Clinton became president, Chuck Schumer assumed leadership of the Senate, and Nancy Pelosi once again wielded a gavel in the House of Representatives? Sooner than you can say "political payback to Planned Parenthood," the United States would have had taxpayer-funded abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Don't...

    It is with optimism and hopeful anticipation that I head out to a meeting President Trump is hosting Thursday for religious leaders. There is a reason for my optimism. Although he doesn't get credit for it, Trump is far more religious than many people realize. In my conversations with pastors who have personally ministered to him, I have been made aware that he's extraordinarily open to the word of God, to the power of prayer, and to growing in the life of the spirit. In other words, he is tuned into the Lord's movement in his life. This is great...

    Fr. Frank Pavone announced today that the Vatican has made public its conclusions about the ministry of Priests for Life. Two years ago, the Congregation for Clergy concluded an "Apostolic Visitation" of Priests for Life, which means that they looked at the ministry, its operations, and its finances, in a positive spirit of helping it to grow and operate more effectively. "We are proud of the results of the Visitation," Fr. Frank said. The report says in part, "PFL is present in more than 50 nations, and its work benefits the Church both in the United States and beyond…Without...

    NEW YORK (RNS) In the latest clash between the Catholic hierarchy and one of the church’s leading anti-abortion crusaders, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan accused the Rev. Frank Pavone of continuing to stonewall on financial reforms, and Dolan said he is cutting ties with his group, Priests for Life. In a Nov. 20 letter to other U.S. bishops, Dolan said he did not know if the Vatican would now step in to take action against the New York-based priest, who for years has angered various bishops by rejecting oversight of the organization by church authorities and for refusing to sort...

    ROME, May 26, 2014 ( – Responding to a high-ranking Italian bishop who distanced himself from those who pray rosaries outside of abortion centers, the head of Priests for Life did not shrink from open criticism. Responding to the recent remarks by Bishop Nunzio Galantino, the secretary-general of the Italian Bishops Conference, Father Frank Pavone said they underline the critical importance of vigorous pro-life efforts. Father Frank Pavone “When somebody says that the Church has ‘concentrated too much on abortion and euthanasia,’ I take it as a compliment for the success of ministries like Priests for Life, which have called...

Frank Pavone at the U.S. Supreme Court In 2011 Bishop Patrick Zurek, bishop of the Diocese of Amarillo, sent a letter to all the bishops of the United States, advising them that he had so many concerns about Priests For Life's $10 million budget that the organization's national director, Fr. Frank Pavone, shouldn't be trusted with donors' money. For a full year, while an investigation was pending, Father Pavone was restricted to working from a small cell in a Texas...

    Rather than answer the simple question as to what is the moral difference between killing a baby outside the womb or inside the womb, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has criticized me and Priests for Life, of which I am the national director, for raising the issue in an open letter, calling us arrogant, medieval, hysterical, and disconnected from the Church. I would like to know if Mrs. Pelosi, in her charges that we are arrogant, medieval, and hysterical, intends to include the more than 14,000 people (and counting) who signed onto my open letter to her in just the...

    Pro-Life Priest Calls on Pelosi to Renounce Catholic Faith By Melanie Batley A Catholic priest active in the pro-life movement said if Nancy Pelosi continues her refusal to condemn abortion, she should renounce her Catholic faith. The Rev. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, sent the House minority leader a strongly worded letter demanding she explain her position on late-term abortion. His letter followed Pelosi's June 13 news conference at which Pavone contends she sidestepped the issue. "We simply want to express frustration that has been long-standing about Pelosi: You can't say you're a Catholic and then betray...
