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.
We look forward to the day when this notification will be unnecessary. Let us continue to pray and advocate for an end to the death penalty. We also need to remind President Biden of his promise to end the Federal Death Penalty.
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.
Recently, there have been a few states that have botched the execution process, causing distress for all concerned. This is just one example of the inhumanity of this process, and the false sense of justice it provides.
