|International Impact of the CPLC
By Aurora Tinajero, Director of CPLC Spanish Ministry
I am thrilled to share my incredible journey to Spain. I, along with CPLC Gabriel Angel Coordinator Ingrid Meyer, were invited by the Archdiocese of Madrid to the “Week of Life” program, held April 6-13, where we presented the Catholic Pro-Life Committee’s model for pro-life ministry and our role in the Diocese of Dallas.
While in Spain, we traveled to the Dioceses of Valladolid, Albacete, and Alcala to give presentations to Cardinal Antonio Rouco Varela and Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla, as well as many priests, religious and lay leaders regarding the CPLC’s mission and model, including the role of Project Gabriel within our ministry. We also gave many interviews to the Catholic and secular media by television, newspaper, and radio. The delegation of speakers, aside from Ingrid and myself, included Monseñor Ignacio Barreira from the Rome office of Human Life International; Mario Rojas, the Director of Coordination for Latin America, Spain and the Caribbean for Vida Humana Internacional; and Adriana Gonzalez, founder of “Catholics Called to Witness” out of Miami, Florida.
Ingrid and I returned to the U.S. overjoyed to have had the opportunity to help our brothers and sisters in Spain. Bishop Reis Pla has already extended an invitation for us to return when they are ready to start working with the parishes after training their priests and parish leaders and beginning the formation of parish pro-life programs. They also hope to unite some of the pro-life groups currently active in Spain to promote a message consistent with Catholic teaching.
