Catholic Social Tradition is the Church’s presentation and articulation of its reflection on human beings in society. It takes into consideration the various areas that encompass life in society, including the political, economic, social, and cultural. It sets about naming the realities confronting persons and societies at a given point in time, highlighting the benefits and dangers those realities present to full human flourishing, and critiquing those realities and developments from the point of view of the values and moral vision of the Catholic faith.
Catholic Social Tradition is an essential element of faith and a key resource providing principles for reflection, criteria for judgment, and guidelines for action.
A wide range of resources can be found here to provide the background necessary to deepen your own knowledge and understanding of the social teaching so that you might pass it on to others.
