Lessons from Pope Francis

catholic social teaching

Catholic social teaching is a central and essential element of our faith.

  • It is a teaching founded on the life and words of Jesus Christ, who came "to bring glad tidings to the poor . . . liberty to captives . . . recovery of sight to the blind"(Lk 4:18-19), and who identified himself with "the least of these," the hungry and the stranger (cf. Mt 25:45).

“Christian families are missionary families in their everyday life, in their doing everyday things, as they bring to everything the salt and the leaven of faith!”

The family: an inestimable and irreplaceable good

“Too often we participate in the globalization of indifference. May we strive instead to live global solidarity.”

“We must not be afraid of solidarity; rather let us make all we have and are available to God.”

Care for God’s Creation

“Care of creation is not just something God spoke of at the dawn of history; he entrusts it to each of us as part of his plan.”

“Let us be ‘protectors’ of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

“The Church cannot grow if people are detached, cold and bad humored. The Church can only grow through love.”
