compendium of the social doctrine of the catholic church pdf

In the relationship between the family and work, particular attention must be given to the issue of the work of women in the family, more generally to the recognition of the so-called work of “housekeeping”, which also involves the responsibility of men as husbands and fathers. Christian communities will be able to look to this document for assistance in analyzing situations objectively, in clarifying them in the light of the unchanging words of the Gospel, in drawing principles for reflection, criteria for judgment and guidelines for action[12]. The Church's social doctrine is a necessary means for an efficacious Christian education towards love, justice and peace, as well as for a conscious maturation of moral and social duties in the various cultural and professional fields. Man is also in relationship with himself and is able to reflect on himself. This important phenomenon has often come about largely through informal means and has given rise to new and positive ways of exercising personal rights, which have brought about a qualitative enrichment of democratic life.

[229] Cf. It is the “unity of the two”[288], or in other words a relational “uni-duality”, that allows each person to experience the interpersonal and reciprocal relationship as a gift that at the same time is a mission: “to this ‘unity of the two' God has entrusted not only the work of procreation and family life, but the creation of history itself”[289]. Christ the Saviour showed compassion in this regard, identifying himself with the “least” among men (cf. Resistance to authority is meant to attest to the validity of a different way of looking at things, whether the intent is to achieve partial change, for example, modifying certain laws, or to fight for a radical change in the situation. [1198] Unfortunately, even in democratic societies, there still remain expressions of secular intolerance that are hostile to granting any kind of political or cultural relevance to religious faiths. [27] These laws are found in Ex 23, Deut 15, Lev 25. Saint James defends the trampled rights of workers: “Behold, the wages of the labourers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts” (Jas 5:4). 344. [686] In the perspective of St. John Chrysostom, riches belong to some people so that they can gain merit by sharing them with others. Gen 1:28). The Church's social doctrine encourages forms of cooperation that are capable of facilitating access to the international market on the part of countries suffering from poverty and underdevelopment. The Declaration Dignitatis Humanae explains in its subtitle that it intends to proclaim “the right of the person and of communities to social and civil freedom in religious matters”. John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 41: AAS 83 (1991), 843-845. Mk 10:42) and rejects their pretension in having themselves called benefactors (cf. also Congregation for the Clergy, General Directory for Catechesis, 17, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, Vatican City 1997, p. 21. [272] First Vatican Ecumenical Council, Dei Filius, c. 2: DS 3005, p. 588; cf. John Paul II, Homily at Pentecost for the First Centenary of Rerum Novarum (19 May 1991): AAS 84 (1992), 282. The principle of the universal destination of goods requires that the poor, the marginalized and in all cases those whose living conditions interfere with their proper growth should be the focus of particular concern. [196] John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, 1: AAS 80 (1988), 514; cf. [748], V. THE “NEW THINGS” IN THE ECONOMIC SECTOR, a. uses cookies to personalize content, tailor ads and improve the user experience. [735] Economic activity, above all in a free market context, cannot be conducted in an institutional, juridical or political vacuum. Primacy is given to doing and having rather than to being, and this causes serious forms of human alienation.[972]. In his public ministry, Jesus makes use of natural elements. The Magisterium recognizes the validity of the principle concerning the division of powers in a State: “it is preferable that each power be balanced by other powers and by other spheres of responsibility which keep it within proper bounds. She has affirmed instead that man cannot be understood “simply as an element, a molecule within the social organism”[235], and is therefore attentive that the affirmation of the primacy of the person is not seen as corresponding to an individualistic or mass vision. The Charter of the United Nations, born from the tragedy of the Second World War with the intention of preserving future generations from the scourge of war, is based on a generalized prohibition of a recourse to force to resolve disputes between States, with the exception of two cases: legitimate defence and measures taken by the Security Council within the area of its responsibilities for maintaining peace. [205] Cf. John Paul II, Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in America, 54: AAS 91 (1999), 790. 7, 199- 205; Saint Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, II-II, q. 226. Above all, the pastoral activity of the Church in the social sector must bear witness to the truth of the human person. [228] Cf. The course of history is marked by the profound transformation and the exhilarating conquests of work, but also by the exploitation of so many workers and an offence to their dignity. Solidarity must be seen above all in its value as a moral virtue that determines the order of institutions. Large numbers of people are thus forced to work under seriously distressing conditions and in situations that lack the rules necessary for safeguarding workers' dignity. She does so in such a way that faith enlightens them so that they can understand the truth that “true liberation consists in opening oneself to the love of Christ”[1114]. [877] The Christian message has been decisive for making humanity understand that peoples tend to unite not only because of various forms of organization, politics, economic plans or in the name of an abstract ideological internationalism, but because they freely seek to cooperate, aware “that they are living members of the whole human family”. Tax revenues and public spending take on crucial economic importance for every civil and political community. [1090] The Church calls on individuals, peoples, States and nations to share her concern for re-establishing and consolidating peace, placing particular emphasis on the important role of international law[1091]. And where the same law of justice is not adhered to by all, men cannot hope to come to open and full agreement on vital issues”. Unde legislatores magis student ad amicitiam conservandam inter cives quam etiam ad iustitiam, quam quandoque intermittunt, puta in poenis inferendis, ne dissensio oriatur. It is a virtue directed par excellence to the common good, and is found in “a commitment to the good of one's neighbour with the readiness, in the Gospel sense, to ‘lose oneself' for the sake of the other instead of exploiting him, and to ‘serve him' instead of oppressing him for one's own advantage (cf. [848] Cf. From the texts that narrate the creation of man (cf. 224. John Paul II, Address to Spanish Bishops on their Ad Limina Visit (19 February 1998), 4: L'Osservatore Romano, English edition, 11 March 1998, p. 5; Pontifical Council for the Family, Family, Marriage and “De facto Unions” (26 July 2000), 23, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, Vatican City 2000, pp. Gen 2:8-24).

[1137] John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 3: AAS 83 (1991), 795. The “Social Weeks” of Catholics that the Magisterium has always encouraged are important examples of formational opportunities. [605] Cf. In every case, whatever choice is made must be rooted in charity and tend towards the attainment of the common good[1200]. The elderly constitute an important school of life, capable of transmitting values and traditions, and of fostering the growth of younger generations, who thus learn to seek not only their own good but also that of others. [220] Cf. Every social model that intends to serve the good of man must not overlook the centrality and social responsibility of the family. 349. 74. John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 40: AAS 83 (1991), 843. f. Under the sign of continuity and renewal.

The fullness of freedom consists in the capacity to be in possession of oneself in view of the genuine good, within the context of the universal common good[440]. This means that it has the effectiveness of truth and grace that comes from the Spirit of God, who penetrates hearts, predisposing them to thoughts and designs of love, justice, freedom and peace. Rom 10:12; 1 Cor 12:13, Col 3:11). The consequences of sin perpetuate the structures of sin. Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, Pastoral Constitution Gaudium et Spes, 76: AAS 58 (1966), 1099-1100. Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2313. Such intervention may never become a substitute for their decisions[529]. For man, “created in God's image, received a mandate to subject to himself the earth and all that it contains, and to govern the world with justice and holiness, a mandate to relate himself and the totality of things to him who was to be acknowledged as the Lord and Creator of all. It is to these men and women, who have received an incomparable and inalienable dignity from God himself, that the Church speaks, rendering to them the highest and most singular service, constantly reminding them of their lofty vocation so that they may always be mindful of it and worthy of it. “Decalogue of Assisi for Peace”, 1, in the letter addressed by John Paul II to Heads of State and of Government on 24 February 2002: L'Osservatore Romano, English edition, 6 March 2002, p. 12. [327] Peace is founded not only on respect for human rights but also on respect for the rights of peoples, in particular the right to independence.[328]. [1115] Paul VI, Apostolic Letter Octogesima Adveniens, 51: AAS 63 (1971), 440. If there is no general consensus on these values, the deepest meaning of democracy is lost and its stability is compromised. And it is love which he awaits as man's response. [65] Cf. 127. Service in culture 3. In developing countries, moreover, there has been an expansion in recent years of “informal” and “hidden” economic activities. For a suitable solution to this problem, it “must be set in context in order to establish moral criteria based precisely on the value of life and the respect for the rights and dignity of all human beings”.[1010]. Such cloning is contrary to the dignity of human procreation because it takes place in total absence of an act of personal love between spouses, being agamic and asexual reproduction[534]. THE PRINCIPLE OF SOLIDARITYa. In the social context, prudence can be specified under two particular forms: “regnative” prudence, that is, the capacity to order all things for the greatest good of society (cf. [844] John Paul II, Message for the 1998 World Day of Peace, 5: AAS 90 (1998), 152. Personal behaviour is fully human when it is born of love, manifests love and is ordered to love. [215] Cf.

[140] Cf. These people come from less privileged areas of the earth and their arrival in developed countries is often perceived as a threat to the high levels of well-being achieved thanks to decades of economic growth. [337] Cf. The term “solidarity”, widely used by the Magisterium[421], expresses in summary fashion the need to recognize in the composite ties that unite men and social groups among themselves, the space given to human freedom for common growth in which all share and in which they participate. In the nineteenth century, events of an economic nature produced a dramatic social, political and cultural impact. Moreover, some serious problems remain unsolved: trafficking in children, child labour, the phenomenon of “street children”, the use of children in armed conflicts, child marriage, the use of children for commerce in pornographic material, also in the use of the most modern and sophisticated instruments of social communication.

Aware of the power of Christianity to renew even cultural and social realities[1105], the Church offers the contribution of her teaching to the building up of the human community by bringing out the social significance of the Gospel[1106]. [567] Cf. This is a truth that applies also today, because “it is altogether false to ascribe either to capital alone or to labour alone what is achieved by the joint work of both; and it is utterly unjust that the one should arrogate unto itself what is being done, denying the effectiveness of the other”[598]. Man rightly appreciates freedom and strives for it passionately: rightly does he desire and must form and guide, by his own free initiative, his personal and social life, accepting personal responsibility for it[253]. [912], 441. 1 Sam 2:35, 24:7,11, 26:9,16; Ex 30:22-32), the son of David (cf. John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 43: AAS 83 (1991), 846-848. The exposition of the Church's social doctrine is meant to suggest a systematic approach for finding solutions to problems, so that discernment, judgment and decisions will correspond to reality, and so that solidarity and hope will have a greater impact on the complexities of current situations. 5 239* Art. “Organizing such a productive effort, planning its duration in time, making sure that it corresponds in a positive way to the demands which it must satisfy, and taking the necessary risks — all this too is a source of wealth in today's society. The Magisterium affirms that minorities constitute groups with precise rights and duties, most of all, the right to exist, which “can be ignored in many ways, including such extreme cases as its denial through overt or indirect forms of genocide”. It requires that the necessary conditions be present for the advancement both of the individual through education and formation in true ideals, and of the ‘subjectivity' of society through the creation of structures of participation and shared responsibility”.[837]. John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 53: AAS 83 (1991), 859. [585] John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Laborem Exercens, 3: AAS 73 (1981), 584.

John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, 41: AAS 80 (1988), 570-572. Likewise ruled out is “the use of detention for the sole purpose of trying to obtain significant information for the trial”. This principle is to be applied above all — although not only — to the earth's resources and to safeguarding creation, the latter of which becomes a particularly delicate issue because of globalization, involving as it does the entire planet understood as a single ecosystem.[759]. In this way man generates himself, he is father of his own being[255], he constructs the social order[256]. Every sin is personal under a certain aspect; under another, every sin is social, insofar as and because it also has social consequences. Is 54:13), absence of fear (cf. c. Moral components of political representation. Sanctions must never be used as a means for the direct punishment of an entire population: it is not licit that entire populations, and above all their most vulnerable members, be made to suffer because of such sanctions. Intimately united to the Church by virtue of the sacrament that makes it a “domestic Church” or a “little Church”, the Christian family is called therefore “to be a sign of unity for the world and in this way to exercise its prophetic role by bearing witness to the Kingdom and peace of Christ, towards which the whole world is journeying”[489]. Human freedom needs therefore to be liberated. An integral development in solidaritye. [744] John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Centesimus Annus, 36: AAS 83 (1991), 839-840. [459] Cf. [733] Cf. “Christian faith has never presumed to impose a rigid framework on social and political questions, conscious that the historical dimension requires men and women to live in imperfect situations, which are also susceptible to rapid change”[1189]. I am pleased to present the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, which, according to the request received from the Holy Father, has been drawn up in order to give a concise but complete overview of the Church's social teaching. 118. [807] John XXIII, Encyclical Letter Mater et Magistra: AAS 53 (1961), 450. 1 Jn 3:16)”[425].

[636] John Paul II, Encyclical Letter Laborem Exercens, 19: AAS 73 (1981), 628. In this way nothing of the created or the human order is foreign to or excluded from the supernatural or theological order of faith and grace, rather it is found within it, taken on and elevated by it. [340], PRINCIPLES OF THE CHURCH'S SOCIAL DOCTRINE. 3, ad 2um: Ed. The common good therefore involves all members of society, no one is exempt from cooperating, according to each one's possibilities, in attaining it and developing it[352]. [909] John Paul II, Message for the 2004 World Day of Peace, 7: AAS 96 (2004), 118. This is a source of serious ethical concern, since the countries excluded from these processes do not enjoy the benefits brought about but are still exposed to the eventual negative consequences that financial instability can cause for their real economic systems, above all if they are weak or suffering from delayed development. In this context, the Holy See particularly avails itself of its own diplomatic personnel. In cases where it is not possible to avoid the implementation of such political programmes or to block or abrogate such laws, the Magisterium teaches that a parliamentary representative, whose personal absolute opposition to these programmes or laws is clear and known to all, may legitimately support proposals aimed at limiting the damage caused by such programmes or laws and at diminishing their negative effects on the level of culture and public morality. , 302-304 Sententiae Octavi Libri Ethicorum, VIII, lect were compromised by sin [ 543 ] John,.
