Lenten Reflections from the Executed: #506 Michael Yowell / October 9, 2013 March 12, 2015

*These reflections are taken from pieces of the last words of the last 40 persons executed in Texas.

Michael Yowell-

“I love you.”

The world is complicated. Evil and love mix on the inside and outside of every person. Michael Yowell was no different. Though he was a confessed killer, Yowell spent his final moments telling his children that he loved them. Who are we to say that the love of a killer isn’t just as salvific as the love of anyone else? We spend so much time judging the love of others that we fail to live love out.

I invite you to practice love by praying the last words of Michael Yowell:

“I love you.”

Amen.
