"God of Mercy" Prayer Card in Spanish

Dios misericordioso,

Tú donas a cada ser humano una dignidad imprescindible que no puede ser eliminada por 
lo que éste  haya echo o sufrido. 

Enraizados en el valor sagrado de la vida, trabajamos juntos para transformar el sistema judicial abrogando la pena de muerte. Reafirmamos nuestro compromiso de ¨trabajar con determinación para la abolición de la pena capital en todo el mundo".  

Sign the National Pledge to End the Death Penalty

The Pledge:

“The death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.” (CCC 2267)

In response to our Church's call, I pledge to educate, advocate, and pray for an end to the death penalty:

Educate

  • I will educate myself and my community about the injustices of the death penalty, including the ways it risks innocent life, fails victims’ families, and contradicts the Catholic Church’s pro-life teaching.

Prayers in this hour include the St. Michael Prayer, The Divine Mercy Chaplet, and a Litany for Life. This guided holy hour can be used to lead a group in a prayer service for and an end to the Death Penalty or can be used by an individual during a personal holy hour.
