Priests for Life
P.O. Box 141172
Staten Island, NY 10314

Dear Supporters of Priests for Life,

Over my ten years as Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland, I crossed paths many times with Father Frank Pavone.  During all this time I have found him dedicated to the preservation of life for the unborn.  He and I both work and pray for the day when we will eliminate this horrendous evil from the face of the earth. 

Supporting abortion happens to be the politically correct stance to take these days.  God would love to restore the peace and love found in the Garden of Eden before the fall.  It is our challenge in this age to build up the Kingdom of God.  We will only achieve this goal if we let his will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
Please keep Father Pavone in your prayers.  He is currently facing some difficult days as he negotiates with his bishop.  The work he had done since founding Priests for Life must continue as we face the future.  Please continue to support Priests for Life.  

I was proud to stand up with Father Pavone when he asked me to serve on the Advisory Board of Bishops.  Every opportunity that comes my way to stand up for life will find me speaking out against abortion.  Let us pray, pray and pray some more for the mothers carrying infants in their wombs.   Also, let us pray for those who perform the abortions and work in those clinics for they need God’s grace to see the evil of their deeds. 

God bless!

(Most Rev.) Roger W. Gries, O.S.B.
Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland
