Solidarity news and reflections of interest to the Passionist Family
Since publication of the 1985 book from the Center of Concern, Our Best Kept Secret: The Rich Heritage of Catholic Social Teaching, the phrase has been repeated often.
The reality of course is that the Catholic church is deeply blessed with more than 100 years' worth of outstanding social justice and peace documents authored by popes, the second Vatican Council, world synods of bishops and national conferences of bishops. But sadly, these documents, compiled in the weighty Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, "attract more dust than readers." (NCR)
Louisville's Bellarmine University student, Alexander Reeves was given the challenge of encapsulating on a bookmark the "7 pillars" of Catholic Social Teaching. The bookmark is distributed through the campus ministry office. Alexander enthusiastically gives us permission to use this design as we wish. If anyone would like him to help with your project he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
