Fr Euteneuer to leave Human Life International


It sounds a lot like what happened to Fr Frank Pavone under Cardinal Egan. He was asked to leave his pro-life ministry and become a pastor on Staten Island. Fr Thomas Euteneuer has been asked to leave his international pro-life ministry and become a paston in an unnamed parish in West Palm Beach Florida.

He is accepting this with grace an obedience, according to his Spirit and Life Newsletter, but it appears to me that he is being silenced. Many of his letters have called various bishops to task for supporting pro-abortion politicians. Maybe they have united against him to silence his powerful voice.

The entire situation looks eerily familiar. Fr Pavone settled his dilemma by forming his own religious order, Missionaries of Life. Maybe Fr Euteneuer should join it.

That's the difference between Father Pavone and Father Euteneuer; Father Tom would never seek to "create" the will of God to suit his purposes. He is obedient in all - including when it may not be exactly as he or others want it.

Where is Father Pavone's order today? It never got off the ground. Millions of dollars raised, nothing to show for it. Check the priest for life website and you will see Father Pavone's quiet statement about this. The order does not exist.

My husband and I thought the same thing...with sadness...

We need Fr. E's voice and I hope that he starts up a blog!

This whole situation is most upsetting -- still no explanatory word from Fr. E. Does anyone know anything further?
