|Fr. Frank Pavone at the U.S. Supreme Court|
For a full year, while an investigation was pending, Father Pavone was restricted to working from a small cell in a Texas convent. He was unable to continue his travel and speaking schedule on behalf of the unborn. The high-profile case was sent to the Vatican for review.
Bishop Zurek is quoted in the Long Island Catholic:
“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.”
