Sisters emphasize opposition to death penalty in wake of recent execution

We are deeply saddened by the execution of federal prisoner, Daniel Lewis, on Tuesday, July 13, 2020. Lee's lawyers tried multiple appeals to halt the execution, but ultimately the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 early Tuesday that it could move forward. A key principle of Catholic Social Teaching is respect for human life and Pope Francis has declared that the death penalty is contrary to the Gospel. We join with the growing numbers of people in our country, who strongly oppose the death penalty as a means of saying that killing is wrong..
