A Concise Guide to Catholic Social Teaching

  • By Kevin E. McKenna
Product Description
As parishes and schools intensify efforts to promote Catholic social teaching, here is a welcome distillations of scoial principles presented in both papal encylicals and pastoral letters developed by American bishops.

Following the structure of the U.S. bishops document Sharing Catholic Social Teaching, the book speaks to seven significant themes:

-- Life and the Dignity of the Human Person

-- Call to Family, Community, and Participation

-- Rights and Responsibilities

-- Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

-- The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers Solidarity

-- Care for God's Creation

Each chapter includes reflection questions ideal for individual or group usage, and an appendix offers biographical information about popes who have issued social encyclicals, suggested homily themes and a Reconciliation Service for Justice and Peace.

Sure to become an invaluable resource for all pastoral ministers, A Concise Guide to Social Teaching is also suitable for parish adult study groups, and high school and college classes on Catholic social teaching.
