Reclaiming Catholic Social Teaching
In our times, many clergy and laymen alike argue that Catholic social teaching requires that we support the demands of a vast -- and largely secular -- welfare state. With the comprehensive works of Pope Leo XIII as his guide, Esolen shows readers that Catholic social teaching is far more generous and human than any government programs can be, and that there can be no coherent and harmonious society without a full Christian understanding of he nature of man, his eternal destiny, the sanctity of marriage, and the important role of the family in all aspects of human life. In these pages, you will gain a profound understanding of the root causes of the ills that afflict our world and learn what we must do in our own communities, curches, and families and churches to begin restore a genuinely Christian society, peopled with sinners, certainly, but striving to live out the fullness of the faith.
