Father Frank Pavone in Ogden, Utah

Today, I had the pleasure of hearing Fr. Frank Pavone at St. James Catholic Church in Ogden, Utah. Fr. Pavone is head of the organization Priests for Life. I've previously read some of his literature, but have never before heard him speak. He is a powerful homilist.

While there, I also had the pleasure of meeting Fr. Erik Richtsteig, popular in the Catholic blogosphere for his blog Orthometer. Fr. Richtsteig and I sometimes read each others' posts. He actually recognized my name when I introduced myself.

Anyway, with the bulletin came a brochure for Priest for Life. The brochure asks to be distributed and posted, and so I offer the following excerpts:

Any woman who is pregnant and in need can turn for help to the pro-life movement. She never has to feel that abortion is the only option. People anywhere in the country can find assistance at the following numbers:

Carenet/Heartbeat: 1-800-395-HELP
Crisis Pregnancy Helpline: 1-888-4-OPTIONS
Birthright: 1-800-550-4900
National Life Center: 1-800-848-LOVE
Bethany Christian Services: 1-800-238-4269

We who reject abortion do not reject those who have had abortions. Counseling, forgiveness, and healing can be found after abortion, and the following numbers can lead you to assistance:

Abortion Recovery Help: 1-877-HOPE-4-ME or 1-800-5-WE-CARE
