US bishops honor 3 pro-life stalwarts
August 12, 2010
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, honored three pro-life stalwarts for their lifetime commitment to the unborn.
Dr. William May, a moral theologian, has been a staunch defender of Humanae Vitae for decades; Msgr. Philip Reilly is the founder of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, which holds pro-life vigils outside abortion clinics. Patricia Bainbridge, a convert to Catholicism, is chairman of the board of Human Life International. The three received the People of Life award during an August 9 ceremony.

I'm absolutely thrilled to see Dr. May honored this way. He is a true scholar and theologian and, more than anyone else, has inspired me. When starting a Masters program in Moral Theology, he was my very first professor at Notre Dame Graduate School. After the "shock" of the first couple of classes (thinking I might be over my head), Dr. May is the one who absolutely inspired me. Wonderful man, who has forgotten far more than I'll likely ever know, and may never know his true inspiration.
