Social Justice and the Mission of Christian Discipleship
Jesus Christ showed us that we cannot truly practice our Faith in isolation. In keeping with our human nature, we take on the mission of Christian discipleship within the human community: the family, the parish, the town, nation, and the world. In all of these, we have responsibilities toward God and our neighbor that can be expressed in what is called social justice. This lesson focuses on principles of Catholic Social Teaching that includes the dignity of the human person, the family, justice, peace, and solidarity.
