Efforts to restore the fabric of life for all who are involved in criminal activities and to restore the unity of the community have encouraged people of faith to look at criminal justice from a new perspective.

“We are still a long way from the time when our conscience can be certain of having done everything possible to prevent crime and to control it effectively so that it no longer does harm and, at the same time, to offer to those who commit crimes a way of redeeming themselves and making a positive return to society. If all those in some way involved in the problem tried to … develop this line of thought, perhaps humanity as a whole could take a great step forward in creating a more serene and peaceful society.” ﹣Pope John Paul II, Homily, July 9, 2000
