Virtual Prayer Vigil this Friday

On the First Friday of each month, the Catholic Mobilizing Network holds a Virtual Prayer Vigil to lament upcoming executions and bear witness to the inviolable dignity of all human life.

According to their website, “These virtual spaces offer a place to pray together as a faith community in response to the injustice of the death penalty. They include time for guided prayer, petitions, Scripture reflections, and contemplative silence. The vigils feature the voices of Catholic bishops, Church leaders, and allies across the death penalty abolition movement.”
Prayers will be said for those at risk of execution during November and their victims.
This Friday, November 5, will feature a Scripture reflection by Most Rev. Daniel Flores, Bishop of Brownsville, Texas. He is the Episcopal Advisor to Catholic Mobilizing Network. The vigil is from 2-3 p.m.
Bishop Flores serves the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops as Chairman of the Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church. He also serves on the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, Committee of Divine Worship, Sub-Committee on Pro-life Activities, and the Committee for Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Affairs.
