John Patrick Stanton, the beloved founder of the Pro Life Union, passed away on Friday, 1/31 at 12 noon on the feast of St. John Bosco. John was an amazing man of God! He was a voice for the defenseless before Roe v. Wade. He will be remembered for his love of life and commitment to defending the sanctity of Life! Please offer a prayer for him and his family. I believe all of the innocent babies that he fought for greeted him at the gates of Heaven! John, we love you and we will miss you! Open the floodgates of Heaven for us and help us in this great battle! Ask the Good Lord and His Mother to shower us with the fortitude to continue this fight and help us to educate those “who do not know what they do” with a charity that will set their hearts on fire with the love of the Truth! Thank you for being a father, brother and friend to us all!
Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord, let Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen!
