My guest in the second half hour of “The Enrichment Hour” (1:30 to 2 PM Eastern, 10:30 to 11 AM Pacific) is Father Frank Mann, a Roman Catholic priest from Queens, New York. He has served as a parish priest and as the Catholic chaplain at Brooklyn College, and is presently a feature writer for The Tablet, a major Catholic newspaper in New York. Father Mann also works for DeSales Media, for which he creates and organizes educational forums on topics ranging from human rights issues to spiritually influential individuals. He is the recipient of a 2010 Catholic Press Award for his article on the significance of pet therapy in hospitals and nursing homes.


Father Mann had a major internal transformation in his view of animals, including farm animals, while driving on the Long Island Expressway and spotting a billboard, which had been created by Mercy for Animals. It was a picture of a dog, a little puppy, and a piglet, and it said, “Why love one, but eat the other?” The impact of this billboard sign was huge for Father Mann. He had to turn off the expressway to reach a service road, where he turned off the ignition and contemplated the meaning of the sign. As he sat in his car, he felt completely emotionally overwhelmed by what he had seen, and cried.


It was shortly after this, and after research on the intelligence and kindness of pigs, and how they were severely treated and slaughtered, as nothing more than meat for the table, that he became a vegan and a powerful advocate of compassion for animals – all animals – as the expression of God’s love for His Creation.


Father Mann stands out as a voice too often missing in the official utterances of the Church, or most other religious institutions. But he points to the compassion of great Church figures like Saint Francis of Assissi as role models that need great emphasis. Father is featured in a You-Tube produced by


The priest is also, on a personal level, trying to keep his beloved cat Newman alive. Newman, who was the first animal to open the Father’s heart about the preciousness of animal life, has chronic medical problems and needs regular veterinary care. Father has a webpage where donations can be made to meet his beloved Newman’s medical Your help will be so very much appreciated! Priests are on a vow of poverty and consequently this makes keeping Newman regularly treated, so very challenging. Thank you for considering a donation to the Father and to his beloved Newman!
