Video: ‘The death penalty is inadmissible’ – Pope Francis

Pope Francis said that “the death penalty is morally inadmissible as it destroys the most important gift we have received: life.”

Pope Francis has asked Catholics around the world to pray in September for an end to the death penalty.

“We pray that the death penalty, which attacks the dignity of the human person, may be legally abolished in every country,” reads the prayer intention, promoted by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network.

Pope Francis said that “the death penalty is morally inadmissible as it destroys the most important gift we have received: life.”
