Rev. Giacomo Capoverdi, Priests Associate, Priests for Life, discusses the importance of the clergy being involved.


SAN DIEGO PRO-LIFERS RECEIVED A HUGE MORALE BOOST from Father Giacomo Capoverdi, of Priests for Life.He visited the San Diego diocese from January 31 to February 6.Father Capoverdi, of the diocese of Providence, Rhode Island, is currently working full-time with Priests for Life at the organization's New York office."My mission is to go out into the whole United States and preach about the evils of abortion," he explained."I'm representing Christ, representing the Church, and representing Father [Frank] Pavone [the Priests for Life director].

"I came out here because I know that San Diego has a lot going on, in the way of pro-life work," Father Capoverdi said.
On February 1, Father Capoverdi assisted at morning Mass at Most Precious Blood Church in Chula Vista and afterward accompanied 16 parishioners on their Wednesday morning prayer vigil at the Clinica Medica abortion mill.
On Saturday morning, February 4, Father Capoverdi joined Catholics and Evangelicals who regularly pray and sidewalk counsel at the Family Planning Associates abortion mill in downtown San Diego, across from Balboa Park.Pro-lifer Sue Lopez reported that 37 people showed up, because "knowing that this priest was coming drew triple the number of Catholics who regularly come."
Lopez recalled Father Capoverdi's reaction to the shout of "Go Home!"yelled from a passing car."He said, 'We Christians, we are home here.Jesus tells us in the Gospel to love our neighbor.He gives the example of the good Samaritan who rescued a man from death.That is what we are doing at the abortion clinic.' It was so uplifting and inspiring for all present to hear this young priest speak."
Speaking to a News Notes reporter, Father Capoverdi said he was inspired to become involved in Priests for Life by "the horrific nature of this sin in our country."He continued: "I felt God's calling say to me, 'I'm happy you're a priest because I called you to be a priest, but now I want you, for a while, to discern leaving the parish and working full-time to help babies that are unborn.' I feel like, if I can save one baby's life in this work, then I've accomplished what I wanted to do."
Having been born in 1965, technically Father Capoverdi is not a survivor of the post-1973 legalized abortion holocaust, but says he nonetheless feels like one.His mother was facing difficult circumstances during her pregnancy and was offered assistance in arranging and paying for an abortion, but she was horrified by the idea.Father Capoverdi said that now, the person who offered her the abortion "comes up to me and pinches my cheeks and says what a tremendous priest I am and ... she wants me to celebrate her funeral Mass ... and I think to myself as she says this, 'If my mother had followed your advice, I wouldn't be here.' And I wonder, 'How many future priests have we aborted?'"
Father Capoverdi discussed the reluctance of some priests to preach about life issues from the pulpit.
