Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, The Social Concerns of the Church

| December 8, 2003

In Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, or The Social Concerns of the Church, Pope John Paul II discusses global development and its ethical/moral dimensions. He builds on Pope Paul VI’s The Development of Peoples, and after surveying the state of poor countries, he considers the confrontation between the two global blocs. He then points to the "structures of sin" as obstacles to development and calls for conversion towards solidarity.
