WASHINGTON — Four U.S. Catholic publications with a broad range of audiences have come together in a joint editorial citing Church leaders in calling for an end to the death penalty in the United States.
“Capital punishment must end,” stated a March 5 editorial by America magazine, the National Catholic Register, the National Catholic Reporter and Our Sunday Visitor.
The death penalty is both “abhorrent and unnecessary,” the publications said.
For the sake of Your sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
