Faithful Catholics


"Pray for the many spiritual and material needs of your families,

your communities, the whole Church, and all of humanity.

Indeed, prayer is the first and greatest work of charity

that we must do for our brothers and sisters."

From Father Frank Pavone Priests for Life

 Coming up in March is the 20th anniversary of the “Magna Charta” document of the pro-life movement,

the encyclical The Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae), written by Pope Saint John Paul II.

It was issued on the Feast of the Annunciation, when Jesus became an unborn child.

On the night of March 24, the vigil of this feast, there will be a pro-life prayer vigil in Rome,

and Churches and dioceses around the world are encouraged to do the same!

Let’s spread the word and see if we can make it happen in our own communities!

Life Stewardship
2005 Priests for Life Newsletter Volume 3 
by Fr. Jim Whalen
 Stewardship is not an option for pro-life disciples. It is a necessity. It means responding to a personal call to “choose life” and imitate Christ, no matter what the cost. Catholics have a duty to be stewards of human life - Jesus did not hesitate to carry out His mission and expects no less from his followers: “I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly...” (Jn 10:10). Living as a pro-life steward means collaborating with God in His work of creation and cooperating with God in His work of redemption. A pro-life Christian steward is one who recognizes, receives, and respects God’s gifts of life thankfully - taking care, cherishing them in a responsible and accountable manner, sharing them in love and justice with others, and returning them with increase to the ‘Giver of Life’. A pro-life steward recognizes God as the origin of life, the giver of freedom, and the source of all they have, are, and will be. Once human beings have accepted their lives as gifts, the Spirit can use them as instruments to spread the ‘Gospel of Life’ Click here to read more of this article by father Jim
