Archdiocese Calls Attorney General Barr to Halt Federal Executions, Calls for Withdrawal of Award to Attorney General Barr

ALBUQUERQUE – Friday, September 18, 2020 – It has come to our attention that a non-profit group called the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, which is not an official Catholic organization, will honor Attorney General William Barr with their Christifideles Laici award on September 23, 2020 “In Honor and Gratitude for Fidelity to the Church, Exemplary Selfless and Steadfast Service in the Lord’s Vineyard.” We are appalled this group will honor Attorney General Barr in light of the fact he just recently began ex*****ons of federal prisoners; something that has not been done since 2003. Catholic teaching on capital punishment (the death penalty) is clear. The Church teaches that "the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person, and she works with determination for its abolition worldwide" (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2267).

We here in New Mexico worked tirelessly with many faith-based and community groups to eliminate the death penalty for New Mexico. In 2009, New Mexico became the 15th state to abolish the death penalty and to replace it with life in prison without the possibility of parole. As of today, there are 30 states that have abolished the death penalty, while 20 states and the federal government still allow ex*****ons. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, “the federal death penalty applies in all 50 states and U.S. territories but is used relatively rarely. About 60 prisoners are on the federal death row, most of whom are imprisoned in Terre Haute, Indiana. Three federal ex*****ons have been carried out in the modern era, all by lethal injection, with the last occurring in 2003” (DPIC, 2020).

That is until this year. In July 2020, after a 17-year moratorium, Attorney General Barr changed that when he resumed federal ex*****ons on July 14. Under his authority, in just six weeks, five men have been executed including a Native American man, despite calls for clemency from his tribal leaders. There are two more scheduled for ex*****on in September, one the day before and another the day after Barr is to receive recognition for “serving the Church well.”

Pope St. John Paul II, Pope Francis and the U.S. Bishops have consistently opposed the death penalty and provide guidance to abolish the death penalty at both state and federal levels.

Catholic teaching offers a unique perspective on crime and punishment. It begins with the recognition that the dignity of the human person applies to both victims and offenders. It affirms our commitment to seek justice, comfort and support victims and their families, while acknowledging the God-given dignity of every human life, even for those who do great harm. Catholic teaching on human life is rooted in the belief that all life has inherent dignity and is a gift from God that must be respected and defended from conception until natural death. In his encyclical The Gospel of Life, Pope St. John Paul II challenged followers of Christ to be “unconditionally pro-life.” He reminded us that “the dignity of human life must never be taken away, even in the case of someone who has done great evil. Modern society has the means of protecting itself, without definitively denying criminals the chance to reform” (Gospel of Life, 27) (USCCB, 2/2011).

There are numerous serious reasons to oppose the death penalty: the dignity of both victim and perpetrator, the routine inconsistent application of capital punishment, the fact that mistakes are irreversible, the exorbitant cost of the appeals process, and a lack of correlation between the death penalty and crime deterrence. As Catholics, we acknowledge the inherent dignity and sacredness of all. We work to protect all life, whether it be a child in the womb, a person without a home, a refugee family, an elderly person at the end of life, a victim of a crime, or a person on death row. There is no justifiable reason to support government-sponsored ex*****on as punishment for even the most heinous crimes. We possess means in today’s society to render the perpetrators harmless through life in prison without parole. With this in mind, we call for the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast to withdraw their honor of Attorney General Barr; and we call on Attorney General Barr to stop all federal ex*****ons. Let us not become the evil we despise.

Father James Martin: Wearing a mask is pro-life The question comes down to this: Are you really pro-life? Do you reverence all lives—the check-out clerk as much as the unborn child?


Jonathan Roumie

OK I just discovered this and was floored. I dare you not to be moved as I was by this rendition of the first stanza of the Latin hymn, “Ubi Caritas”. Listen all the way through.
Kings Return clearly need to put out an entire album of Latin hymns. Their voices transcend the physical limitations of ‘song’ as the Spirit indelibly weaves Himself within their collective art. What a gift.
I so hope they do more...


Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exsultemus, et in ipso jucundemur.
Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.


Where charity and love are, there God is.
The love of Christ has gathered us into one.
Let us exult, and in Him be joyful.
Let us fear and let us love the living God.
And from a sincere heart let us love each other (and Him).

Dominican Central Province

Dear Friends of Dominicans,

Along with you, my heart breaks over continuing images of the senseless death of Minneapolis citizen, George Floyd. As Provincial of the Dominican Central Province of St. Albert the Great, I join my voice to the thousands of others calling for national reform in response to this outrageous killing.

CMSM (Conference of Major Superiors of Men), representing leaders of more than 200 Catholic religious institutes of men across the United States, has released a statement condemning racism and brutality and calling for authentic change. I wish to share this statement with you which strongly represents my own view and that of the leadership of the Central Province Dominicans.

Dominican friars regularly embrace freedom, peace, equality, and non-violence as necessary for preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May God’s Holy Spirit lead us to the depths of a Gospel understanding that truly transforms us and the world as we pursue equality and justice for all.

Fr. James V. Marchionda, OP
Prior Provincial

[03/31/20]   Hey guys , been thinking about this virus junk and the upcoming Easter season. What if we as Christians were to take red ribbons and Pin or tape to our door posts , as a symbol of the blood that was placed over the doors of the children of Israels homes at Passover , when God freed them from Egyptian bo***ge, just to show this world and satan that our God is still able to deliver His people from any and everything that tries to put us in bo***ge. We are His children, we are His favorites, we are His property, and He loves us as no one else can. Let us show the world that we believe His word, and we are His.
This is to let the world know that we believe the word of God, Who else will place this on their page ? Let’s get the word out! God is still in control, He is our ONLY hope. Cover those door post and stand on His promise of protection for His people.
Passover starts April 8th -16th. Let’s get the word out
