Media, Faith, Culture

It is important to recognize that popular culture shapes us, as well as reflects our values. Examining our culture can be a very effective means of calling attention to critical issues in this society and in the global community, issues that are related to justice and peace for all.

This section explores popular culture in light of Catholic Social Teaching through resources with questions for reflection and discussion. We invite your suggestions and your contributions.
