Good evening, Sr. Helen from a teacher from Sisters of St. Joseph founding McNicholas HS!! How can we have the dialogue in the public square regarding morality when the judicial system doesn't reflect morality but 'law?'

My son Emmett (13) asks “How do you/ can we know if we have the courage to do things like what you have done?”

Just finished reading GREEN MILE (saw the movie too) and there is a part where one of the boss said - knowing John Coffey is innocent - "we are killing a gift from God."
Mary Vanderhoof
01:14:19
QUESTION: Can you speak to the restorative justice movement and the role it may play in ending the death penalty and teaching society a new way to look at justice?

I teach history at a Catholic college. I read River of Fire a few months after if was published (marvelous) and since then I assign two chapters of the book to my huge college “core” class of sophomores of all majors when I teach the 1960s. My students are deeply interested… they learn about Vat II from Sr. Helen. I am thrilled to be able to give them the gift of her story and insights when they are 19 years old.
