Resources provided by the USCCB on the death penalty and its use are based upon the official teaching of the Catholic Church on defense of the common good and on the view that the need for the use of the death penalty in today’s society is “very rare, if practically nonexistant” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2267). Please make use of these resources in abolition efforts and share them among the Catholic communities and organizations of which you are a part.
