This text introduces students to the social teachings of the Catholic Church as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and in the church’s Magisterial documents from Rerum Novarum through Deus Caritas Est. The student will learn how Christ’s concern for others, especially the poor and needy, is present today in the Church’s social doctrine and mission.
This book, The Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church, corresponds to Elective C: Living as a Disciple of Jesus Christ in Society in the curriculum framework.
