Catholic Social Teaching
Rooted in Scripture and the rich tradition of our faith, Catholic Social Teaching is a guide for how to live as a people of justice and mercy. Learn more about how restorative justice and capital punishment respectively serve to uphold or violate the principles of Catholic social thought.
CMN has published a series of books examining Catholic teaching on capital punishment and our faith-based call to restorative justice. Order a copy for yourself to read during Respect Life Month, or share with those in a parish small group or reading group for communal reflection.
