Economic Justice


Pope Benedict XVI, in Deus Caritas Est (2005), affirmed that “[w]ithin the community of believers there can never be room for a poverty that denies anyone what is needed for a dignified life.” In the 2013 encyclical Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis writes of “an inseparable bond between our faith and the poor,” and “appreciating the poor in their goodness, in their experience of life, in their culture, and in their ways of living the faith,” so that we may “properly accompany the poor on their path of liberation.” The CCSJ seeks to put these teachings into action, promoting just business models and holistic care for the poor. We aim to advocate for workers and all those experiencing poverty.
