Twenty years ago this month the U.S. Catholic bishops adopted their pastoral letter on the U.S. economy, which they called Economic Justice for All. In their foreword they wrote that they were believers called to follow Our Lord Jesus Christ and proclaim his Gospel in the midst of a complex and powerful economy. Because economic decisions have human consequences and moral content, they described the letter as a personal invitation to Catholics to use the resources of our faith, the strength of our economy, and the opportunities of our democracy to shape a society that better protects the dignity and basic rights of our sisters and brothers, both in this land and around the world”.
