Pope Francis’ prayer intention for September is for the Abolition of the Death Penalty. 

For people committed to upholding the sanctity of human life, the need to respect and protect innocent human life is apparent. For some, however, issues like the death penalty may seem less clear. Although nothing can substitute for thorough catechesis, the complete Q & A (below) may be helpful as a starting point for considering the death penalty within the context of respect for God’s gift of human life.

 

Culture of Life

The USCCB has identified four areas imperative for fostering a Culture of Life; Prayer, Service, Advocacy and Education. Each of us has specific gifts and talents that can be applied in these areas. The Culture of Life is broad. It encompasses respecting all life and all the issues that threaten its dignity.

Catholic Charities of Central Florida has local links and resources for moms and families in need.

Visit the Respect Life USCCB website for additional resources.
