Ep. 134 - Frank PavoneThe Sunday Special•Jan 14, 2023
In November 2022, the Vatican removed outspoken pro-life Roman Catholic priest Frank Pavone from the priesthood for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience.” In this episode, Father Frank joins us to discuss the controversy around his dismissal, clergy resistance to addressing abortion, speaking moral truth in the political arena, Pope Francis and the future of the Catholic church, and more.
Father Frank Pavone was ordained to the priesthood in 1988 and assigned to St. Charles’s Church in Staten Island. In 1993, he sought and obtained permission from Cardinal John O’Connor to devote his ministry to ending abortion, and was appointed director of Priests for Life. Father Pavone is also the President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council and the chairman of Rachel’s Vineyard, an organization offering weekend retreats in order to “renew, rebuild, and redeem hearts broken by abortion.”
