.@helenprejean during @GUcstpubliclife death penalty panel says upcoming federal executions puts a "laser ray" on how faulty this system is. "Our moral challenge is to work out of hope," she adds. Image
.@KrisanneVMurphy points out that Trump administration has pursued federal executions with an "insatiable vengeance." #deathpenalty Image
Panelists talking about how this is a life issue and that there will still be work to do in Biden administration. "We need to remain vigilant" continue momentum, @KrisanneVMurphy from @CMNEndtheDP said.
Can you help our church understand the importance of upholding all life, not just innocent life? @helenprejean said she wrote to St. John Paul.
Panelists advise talking about death penalty at parish level and using resources from @CMNEndtheDP - or joining that group in prayer, especially for three federal executions just in next week. #deathpenalty
This needs to "journey of conversion" to change minds in Catholic Church on death penalty, @helenprejean said, noting it would be great to hear this from the pulpit but also in small group discussions or adult education in parishes.
Also: "raise your voice in the public square," she said. Sign a petition, write to attorney general, write an op-ed to be part of a movement speaking against the death penalty.
