Our Dear Friend Mike Lambrix left us on October 5, 2017. Executed by the state of Florida. He went from the Darkness to the Light.. Where he is there is no hurting, no suffering, and no pain. While we grieve his loss, we are comforted by the fact that he is in a far better place now. We were all very lucky to have had him in our lives and as much as he will be missed by us all, he will remain with us, every day, always..
Mike has left us, but his blog will stay alive, as he wished. Every few weeks one of his writings will be re-posted. Mike started his blog in 2008, but there are essays from even before that time. Also, relevant information, updates and developments about topics close to Mike's heart will be posted here, so while he is not with us, his spirit lives on in this writings and in the hearts of all who cared about him.

M. Dale S. Recinella, Catholic Correctional Chaplain declares:
"As the state of Florida moves forward on a death warrant for Mr. Lambrix, they are asserting procedural bar against allowing a hearing on his evidence of self-defense and other late discovered evidence of innocence. The purpose of procedural bar in death penalty cases is so the state can kill people without giving them a chance to present late-discovered evidence of their innocence to the court. From a moral standpoint, every person of biblical faith should be outraged at any attempt by the state to use procedural bar in death penalty cases. Exodus 23:7 All persons of Catholic faith should be doubly outraged in light of the specific teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas that the execution of an innocent person is intrinsically evil. In principle, procedural bar should be banned in all death penalty cases. In this case specifically, the courts should order that the evidence be heard. Even a minimum of moral decency requires it"
