In a society that values consumption and material objects, Catholic social tradition places the highest value on human relationships.

“All of us experience firsthand the sad effects of this blind submission to pure consumerism: in the first place a crass materialism, and at the same time a radical dissatisfaction because one quickly learns … that the more one possesses the more one wants, while deeper aspirations remain unsatisfied and perhaps even stifled” ﹣John Paul II, Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, 1987, #28
