Lamplighter Award given to those fostering the light of truth in a dark world:
To Fr. Frank Pavone who is leaving Priests for Life to return to parish work in the Archdiocese of New York. We are most grateful to Father for his tremendous work and especially his support of using graphic images of our precious babies to convert hearts. May all the ordained saints join in a chorus of prayers for your continued faithful service to the Church.
To Fr. Norman Weslin of the Lambs of Christ who has spent more time in jail for defending our littlest brothers and sisters than any other priest we know. His unfailing example of cheerfulness and charity toward the enemies of Christ are a great encouragement. Thank you, Father, and may our "12 star general," the Blessed Mother wrap you in her mantel of protection.
Millstone Award given to those who through ignorance or malice scandalize God's people:
To Patti Morrissey who used her campaign literature to imply that a Catholic can legitimately support killing unborn children. Her crass attempt to influence Catholic voters by advertising her affiliation with Christ the Redeemer parish deserves the strongest reprimand and removal as a religious ed teacher. May St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, founder of the parochial school system, intercede for her conversion.
To California Governor, Gary Davis, who betrayed his faith by promoting and signing into law bills giving special privileges to couples publicly practicing sodomy and fornication and one that authorizes dispensing without prescription and to minors a pill that murders unborn children. May saints Thomas More and Maximilian Kolbe who accepted martyrdom rather than cooperate with evil governments, intercede for Governor Davis.
