He is also the host of Life Issues, a daily radio commentary carried on over 1,100 outlets.

“I greatly admire the National Pro-Life Religious Council because these are the people who walk their faith even when it’s hard to do so,” Mattes said. “The National Pro-Life Religious Council is a voice working to counter a moral and ethical vacuum in society. I’m honored to be the 2014 recipient of their National Pro-Life Recognition Award, and I’m blessed to serve alongside them.”
The award will be presented during the 20th annual National Memorial for the Preborn and Their Mothers and Fathers on January 22, the morning of the March for Life.
