For years, Pax Christi USA’s most popular prayer card was the “Prayer to Abolish the Death Penalty” by Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ. We’re excited to announce that we have newly redesigned the prayer card, updated it, and now made it available in our online store.
Written by one of the nation’s most well-known teachers on abolishing the death penalty, this compassionate prayer by Helen Prejean, CSJ, 1996 Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace, calls us to expand and deepen our hearts so that we may love as Jesus loves all – even those among us who have caused the greatest pain by taking life.
This prayer card is excellent for outreach in your parish, school, university and community. The prayer lends itself to individual use but is also perfect for anti-death penalty vigils, prayer services, and gatherings to protest executions. Some have purchased the prayer card to send to their legislators, especially Catholic legislators, when lobbying to get the death penalty abolished in their state.
This card is 3.5″ x 5.5″, reprinted with new action suggestions in 2023; shrink-wrapped in packages of 100. Click here to order your packet of prayer cards now.
