Pray for an end to the death penalty, for those scheduled for execution, for the victims of these crimes and all whose lives have been impacted by violence.
Scheduled Executions for December 2017
1: Bobby Wayne Stone, SC (execution stayed)
14: Juan Castillo, TX (execution stayed)
Of the 6 people scheduled for execution in November, 2 were executed. One was rescheduled, and 3 were stayed. As we went to press, we learned that Juan Castillo also had his execution stayed. All still need our prayers.
National Catholic Pledge to End the Death Penalty
“All Christians and people of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom” – Pope Francis #Pledge4Mercy
Catholic Mobilizing Network wants YOU to take action and ask for clemency for those scheduled to die by the death penalty. They have recently updated their website with more opportunities for advocacy. Be sure to take a look!
