I’ve been asked by several people to update the information I posted a while back regarding Catholic Social Teaching.
The underlying theme in all Catholic Social Teaching is the dignity of the human person — as given to us by God. In Genesis we are told: 1) all creation is good; 2) humans are made in the image and likeness of God. This is the source of our dignity–we are valued, loved, and honored by God simply because we exist.
Our call is to act in ways that honor and promote dignity.
The best source of documents on Catholic Social Teaching comes from the Catholic Charities office in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Here is the link: Catholic Social Teachings
