Social Justice an integral part of the New Evangelization

Salt and Light Media

October 28, 2013
CNS - Justice and PeaceSalt and Light's new series The Church Alive is now in its fifth week and there is still much more to come.  This past Sunday, October 27th, the always important but often misunderstood topic of Social Justice was discussed.  From the time of the Second Vatican Council especially, and under the guidance of subsequent popes, the Catholic Church has been reflecting on the meaning of the work of justice and peace as it relates to her mission.  Now, with the election of Pope Francis, the New Evangelization has hit the road and it's time to get informed and involved in this work which seeks the happiness and freedom of every individual.
"Testimony to Christ's charity, through works of justice, peace and development, is part and parcel of evangelization, because Jesus Christ, who loves us, is concerned with the whole person."
(Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, 15)
