Catholic Mobilizing Network Prayer Card God of Mercy

God of Mercy,

You bestow upon every person a dignity that cannot be extinguished, no matter the harm someone has suffered or caused.

Rooted in this sacred value of all life, we work together to transform the criminal justice system by ending the death penalty. Enliven our commitment to “work with determination for its abolition worldwide."

Dios misericordioso,

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

A prayer for those affected by violence and harm of any kind.

Estas oraciones de los fieles subrayan nuestro llamado a ser defensores de TODA vida.

The culture of life we seek is built on a foundation of prayer. The Holy Hour of Mercy is a resource that guides you through an hour of praying for life and an end to the death penalty. Prayers in this hour include the St. Michael Prayer, The Divine Mercy Chaplet, and a Litany for Life.

Intended for use before or on the day of an execution, CMN's Prayer Vigil for an Execution calls all to reflect on the themes of forgiveness and mercy in the face of the death penalty.

Journey the way of the cross while meditating on the need to end the death penalty and promote restorative justice. This special death penalty themed Stations of the Cross will give you the opportunity to meditate on the many complex and unjust realities of the death penalty while journeying with Christ on his passion.

CMN's Holy Saturday Prayer Service serves as a way to explore one of the more profound - and underutilized - days of the liturgical year. Beginning from the darkness of Good Friday, this experiential prayer service invites participants to reflect on the role of harm in their own lives; and the lives of those impacted by the continued use of the death penalty and the larger criminal justice system.

Catholic Mobilizing Network invites you into prayerful reflection and hopeful anticipation this Advent season. For each week of Advent, we offer a special reflection to guide your preparation for the coming of Christ.

A compilation of all four weekly reflections is available for download here.
