January 21, 2014 For Immediate Release
Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, is commenting on news that Bishop Patrick J. Zurek
 
has finally admitted nothing improper was going on at Priests for Life.  According to an article published in the Long Island Catholic, 
Bishop
 
Patrick J. Zurek of Amarillo, Texas, sent a letter in December to the bishops of the United States informing them that all concerns he had raised in regard to Staten Island-based Priests for Life (PFL), led by Father Frank Pavone, a priest of the Diocese of Amarillo,
  
have been  favorably received and addressed by the Congregation of Clergy.
 
 
  
My concerns included some restructuring of PFL so that it would have  juridic personality and become a true ecclesial association. Also included was a request for more adequate and transparent reporting of finances to the competent ecclesiastical authority. Both of these requests have been favorably addressed by the Congregation of Clergy,
 
 the bishop wrote.
 
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,
 
 he said.
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.
 
 In the October 2011 edition of Life Talk, produced by Life Dynamics, Crutcher and the panel detail the original situation involving Fr. Frank Pavone and Bishop Zurek at that time. Listen to the show here (begin 7:00 minutes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLN_EG03Cvg
