“Is God vengeful, demanding a death for a death? Or is God compassionate, luring souls into love so great that no one can be considered enemy?” During this retreat, Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, a Southern storyteller, takes you on a journey and shares her experiences involved with her death penalty ministry while working with the poor. Sr. Helen, a native of Lousiana, is an internationally known death penalty opponent, the author of the New York Times best-seller, Dead Man Walking, and inspiration for the movie of the same name. She is a religious educator, champion of the poor—and part-time comedian! She also authored Death of Innocents: Wrongful Executions and founded the Moratorium Campaign, a group seeking to halt the death penalty.
