Author: Fr. Chris Lowe
64 pages, 5.5” x 8.5”
What does the Church teach about immigration, war, caring for our neighbor, the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death, employment and labor unions, climate change, and other crucial social issues? To fully understand, we need to look beyond politics, opinions, and popular culture. We need to appreciate the Church’s extensive social doctrines, their breadth, history, and the reasoning behind them. In these five informative and enlightening sessions, Fr. Chris Lowe guides us through the Church’s official Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church and introduces us to twelve vital pillars of the Church’s social teaching.
Perfect for small groups, youth ministry, or adult faith formation, this clear and accessible guide helps us understand both the “whats” and the “whys” of the Church’s social teachings and how they provide the moral compass we need to navigate our complex and increasingly polarized world.
