Political Tradition Hispanics in America: A fresh reading of Populorum Progressiomore than forty years after its publication, invites us to remain faithful to its message of charity and truth, viewed within the overall context of Paul VI’s specific magisterium and, more generally, within the tradition of the Church’s social doctrine.

At the same time we must recognize our grave duty to hand the earth on to future generations in such a condition that they too can worthily inhabit it and continue to cultivate it. The encyclical is concerned with the problems of global development and progress towards the common good, arguing that both Love and Truth are essential elements of an effective response.

CaritasInVeritate – Aid. Truth. Transformation

Social concern must never be an abstract attitude. Germany Germany’s New Years Eve fireworks ruining air quality Locating resources, financing, production, consumption and all the other phases in the economic cycle inevitably have moral implications.

From the social point of view, systems of protection and welfare, already present in many countries in Paul VI’s day, are finding it hard and could find it even harder in the future to pursue their goals of true social justice in today’s profoundly changed environment.


In this way one loses sight of the profound significance of the culture of different nations, of the traditions of the various peoples, by which the individual defines himself in relation to life’s fundamental questions [62].

This is a very important aspect of authentic development, since it concerns the inalienable values of life and the family []. Just as human virtues are interrelated, such that the weakening of one places others at risk, so the ecological system is based on respect for a plan vertiate affects both the health of society and its good relationship with nature.

The mobility of labourassociated with a climate of deregulation, is an important phenomenon with certain positive aspects, because it can stimulate wealth production and cultural exchange.

The sharing of reciprocal duties is a more powerful incentive to action than the mere assertion of rights. Man does not develop through his own powers, nor can development simply be handed to him.

Pope Benedict appeals for less greed and more soul

csritas The urgency is inscribed not only in things, it is not derived solely from the rapid succession of events and problems, but also from the very matter that is at stake: The State does not need to have identical characteristics everywhere: Being out of work or dependent on public or private assistance for a prolonged period undermines the freedom and creativity of the person and his family and social relationships, causing great psychological and spiritual suffering.

She has a public role over and above her charitable and educational veritage At that time cultures were relatively well defined deutschs had greater opportunity to defend themselves against attempts to merge them into one. But the social doctrine of the Church has unceasingly highlighted the importance of distributive justice and social justice for the market economy, not only because it belongs within a broader social and political context, but also because of the wider network of relations within which it operates.

The Pope emphasizes the call in Populorum progressio for the creation of a market model where “all will be able to give and receive”. The Pope goes on to caution: Through support for economically poor countries by means of financial plans inspired by solidarity — so that these countries can take steps to satisfy their own citizens’ demand for consumer goods and for development — not only can true economic growth be generated, but a contribution can be made towards sustaining the productive capacities of rich countries that risk being compromised by the crisis.


Similarly, social action without truth can end up “serving private interests and the logic of power”. There are certain religious cultures in the world today that do not oblige men and women to live in communion but rather cut them off from one other in a search for individual well-being, limited to the gratification of psychological desires.

In this context, our attention is brought to consider the energy problem. The way humanity treats the environment influences the way it treats itself, and vice versa.

In every cognitive process, truth is not something that we produce, it is always found, or better, received. Violence puts the brakes on authentic development and impedes the evolution of peoples towards greater socio-economic and spiritual well-being.

The Church is a sign and instrument of this unity []. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. Every violation of solidarity and civic friendship harms the environment, just as environmental deterioration in turn upsets relations in society.

The theme of development can be identified with the inclusion-in-relation of all individuals and peoples within the one community of the human family, built in solidarity on the basis of the fundamental values of justice and peace.
