Father Pavone to lead Rosary in front of the White House

 

Priests for Life


9/28/2012

       
   
 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will lead the praying of the Rosary at noon on Sunday, Sept. 30, at Lafayette Park in front of the White House.

The prayer event is part of ActsFive29, a 72-hour program of prayer and civil disobedience to kick off at 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.

“The Rosary is a devotion strongly embraced by the pro-life movement,” said Father Pavone.

“This is so for good reasons, because in the Hail Mary we praise a mother, and we worship the fruit of her womb. Our salvation began because a mother said yes to the life within her!

“In the rosary we also say, ‘Pray for US sinners.’ We don’t point the finger at others, but rather at ourselves. We know that sin is in the world, but we start by repenting of the sin within us. The pro-life movement is in fact a movement of repentance, of admitting we haven’t done enough. That is the best way to rebuild the Culture of Life,” Fr. Pavone explained.

Immediately after the Rosary, Fr. Pavone will lead off the speeches in the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. to protest the unjust mandate requiring every employer, including faith-based ministries like Priests for Life, to provide free contraception, sterilization and abortifacient drugs to their employees.

Priests for Life was among the first to sue the Obama administration back in February. The mandate went into effect for Priests for Life on August 1, and on that morning Fr. Pavone announced the organization would disobey it.

Bryan Kemper, director of Youth Outreach for Priests for Life, will participate in the rally and wrote about his willingness to be arrested: http://bit.ly/Q0x2dR to read his testimony.
