Pope Benedict : No justice without life

At the General Audience this Wednesday Pope Benedict XVI gave his support to an initiative to end the death penalty. Speaking in English he said: “I greet the distinguished delegations from various countries taking part in the meeting promoted by the Community of Sant’Egidio on the theme: No Justice without Life. I express my hope that your deliberations will encourage the political and legislative initiatives being promoted in a growing number of countries to eliminate the death penalty and to continue the substantive progress made in conforming penal law both to the human dignity of prisoners and the effective maintenance of public order”.
