Perhaps you have heard of the right to life. What does that mean – the right to life?
Every person on earth has basic needs. What is a need?
What is the common good?
What is stewardship?
What is subsidiarity?
These and other Catholic Social Teachings are introduced, defined, and explored in Sandra Garant's newest title, a book on Catholic Social Teaching. Our actions arise from our attitudes and knowledge. Therefore, we need to know the why and what of Catholic Social Teaching.
