This past week was Divine Mercy Sunday, the great culmination of the Easter Octave, where Christians celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection from dead. God's redemption through Jesus Christ isn't for one person and for one time, but for the entire human race—past, present, and future. 

Pope Francis sums it up well in his tweet: "God’s mercy is forever; it never ends, it never runs out, it never gives up when faced with closed doors, and it never tires."

That's why we need to step up as the People of God and stop Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson from his execution spree. 

Governor Hutchinson is attempting to execute eight persons in eleven days. Despite legal challenges, he's already overseen the execution of one man on Thursday night.

For his last meal, Ledell Lee declined to eat but instead chose to consume the Eucharist. I'm reminded of the words of Jesus on the cross to the Good Thief: "I promise you that you will be with me in paradise."

Fellow Christians, let's stop this. Call Governor Hutchinson today at (501) 682-2345 and ask him to end the executions. If the line is busy, shoot him an e-mail.

Governor Hutchinson talks about the Bible often. You can't hold the Bible in one hand and violate its teachings on the other hand. A simple question for the Governor: how many people would Jesus execute?

Please contact him today, and let us know how it goes.
