Catholic Social Teaching and Criminal Justice

"So I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven; hence, she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little. He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace." - Luke 7:47, 50

“Respect for life applies to all, even the perpetrators of terrible acts. Punishment should be consistent with the demands of justice and with respect for human life and dignity.” - A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death, USCCB, 2005
