I never have used any automated mode with gnupg and usually I use a
smartcard, but, generally speaking, you have to use the --batch option
and provide your passphrase via command line.
gpg2 --batch --passphrase-file [passphrasefile] --recipient [uid or
fingerprint of recipient's key] --sign --encrypt [yourtext.txt]

But I'm not sure. Please (more expert people) correct me if I am wrong.
