Social justice has a definitive place in the Catholic Church.
The value of human life. The call to family and community. Serving the poor. Providing education. The rights of workers. Care for creation.
The church has always taught certain undeniable truths that can and should affect our society. But over the years, these teachings have been distorted, misunderstood, and forgotten.
"Catholic social teaching has explosive power for changing not just individuals, but whole societies. And it's the saints who light the fuse." - Brandon Vogt
With the help of fourteen saints, it's time we reclaim Catholic social teaching and rediscover it through the lives of those who best lived it out. Follow in the saints' footsteps, learn from their example, and become the spark of authentic social justice that sets the world on fire.
