OPJCC Priority Issue: Death Penalty

SC Congregational Stand – Death Penalty:

As a Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, we believe that the death penalty should be abolished in the United States in law and in practice. October 2000

According to Catholic Social Teaching – Rights and Responsibilities,

the Catholic tradition teaches that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. Therefore, every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency. Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities – to one another, to our families, and to the larger society.

On August 1, 2018 Pope Francis

approved a new revision of paragraph number 2267 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, according to which “a new understanding has emerged of the significance of penal sanctions imposed by the state,” thus, “the death penalty is inadmissible.”
