SAINT ANTHONY'S MESSENGER OF CINCINNATI EXHORTS SIX THINGS WE MUST DO TO END THIS IMMORAL LEGALIZED STATE HOMICIDE May 22, 2007
In the year 2004 the great Saint Anthony's Messenger Press based in Cincinnati published these six things we Catholics MUST do to end the immoral state homicide which the USA uniquely permits itself without reason and against justice.
This substantial pamphlet bears the Nihil Obstat of Franciscan Father Donald Miller, the Imprimi potest of Franciscan Provincial Father Fred Link and the Imprimatur of the Archbishop of Cincinnati the Most Reverend Carl Moeddel, VG. Reflecting current orthodox Roman Catholic moral theology as also summarized in the Compendium, etc., this excellent resource was compiled by Robert H. Hopcke, and includes resources such as other books like the powerful and well-known statement by Antoinette Bosco Choosing Mercy: A Mother of Murder Victims Pleads to End the Death Penalty and Sister Helen Prejean's famous Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account Of The Death Penalty In The United States. SImilar hard copy resources are followed by links to various internet resources which this current format's guidelines do not permit us to directly quote and link, but which includes the Respect Life Organization, Catholics against Capital Punishment, the Community of Sant'Egidio and the United States Conference of CAtholic Bishops, in particular their famous and well-respected Good Friday statement, as well as "Responsibility, Rehabilitation and Restoration."
The six steps include Prayer, Reading and Writing. Please begin by reading this very accessible pamphlet courageously provided by the great Saint Anthony's Press, and pass it out at your parish, including to new members, and especially to your state legislators and government, who might not realize that another urgent Catholic Right to Life issue includes the abolition of the death sentence.
It is a shame for our nation to stand nearly alone in this barbaric and fruitless pratice which merely increases violence and death without building the peace and stability of our society. The rest of the world can only shake their head in wonder, while Jesus weeps once more.
