The Mercy in Action Project
Catholic Mobilizing Network’s Mercy in Action Project gives you the tools you need to promote clemency for those on death row. Subscribers receive monthly alerts about upcoming executions which include resources for prayer and advocacy. Sign up here.
Pope Francis has called on Catholics to work to end the Death Penalty. View his prayer video here>> LINK.
We recommit to our own advocacy efforts on this life issue.
We ask you to pray for Richard Glossip who, though wrongly accused, has spent 24 years on death row. New evidence stayed his execution for 90 days to allow time for a new hearing. His execution is currently scheduled for December 8. Let us pray to the Immaculate heart of Mary to intercede on his behalf.
