Rosary on Death Row

Rosary in hands

Take part in a new prayer initiative created by Eric Williams, a current Texas death row inmate. Every Friday Evening at 8:00 PM Central, death row inmates around the nation are invited to pray the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary "in unity of purpose for an end to the death penalty, the intentions of those inmates currently on death row, and overall prison reform."

"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".

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.

A Prayer Vigil for an Execution

The service invites all to lift up the dignity of life and pray for those impacted by violence, deepening our collective commitment to the work to end capital punishment.
