Catholic Focus - Social Justice

February 15, 2012
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, we are told that, "To receive in truth the Body and Blood of Christ given up for us, we must recognize Christ in the poorest, his brethren."
In this episode of Catholic Focus, host Andrew Santos sits down with Dr. Andrew Simone of Canadian Food for Children, and Luke Stocking of Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace. They took the opportunity to dig deep and examine the ever-growing issue of Social Justice and how Catholics are called to pro-active response in the Church and in the world.
