The Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching

We are in the midst of our study of the development of modern injustices. When we complete that unit we will begin looking at how the Church directs us to respond to those injustices, which is called Catholic Social Teaching (hence the name of the class).

Catholic Social Teaching addresses seven key themes, which can be found in the chart on page 56 of your textbook. There is also a short explanation of them found at this link. We will go into detail about them later, but I wanted to bring your attention to them as they will be central in the theological content of your senior project.

Next up, we will study Nationalism, Rationalism, & Colonialism.

Ad Jesum per Mariam,
Mr. B
