In November 2012, the Congregation decided that since the principle office of PFL is in the Archdiocese of New York, the Archbishop of New York is currently the competent authority to exercise vigilance over the association.
I am happy that this process is at an end and I hope and pray that Father Pavone and PFL may now continue its important work in the defense of all human life, especially that of the unborn,
Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher responds,
I am happy to see that Bishop Zurek has finally admitted that nothing improper was going on at Priests for Life and that this organization and its leader, Father Pavone, can resume its full activities. However, we should not forget that there was no merit to the charges Zurek was alleging and he should have never created this situation in first place. The bottom line is that Fr. Frank was taken out of service for months and this fine organization was crippled for absolutely no reason.
