sEVEN THEMES OF
CATHOLIC SOCIAL TEACHING

The Church's social teaching is grounded in the basis of our mission at Catholic Charities of Denver. In these brief reflections, we highlight several of the key themes that are at the heart of our Catholic social tradition.

LIFE & Dignity Of THE HUMAN PERSON

The dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.

CALL TO FAMILY, COMMUNITY & Participation

The person is not only sacred but also social. How we organize our society directly affects human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community. We believe people have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.

RIGHTS and
RESPONSIBILITIES

The Catholic tradition teaches that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community is achieved when human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. Therefore, every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency.

OPTION FOR THE POOR AND VULNERABLE

A basic moral test is how our most vulnerable members are faring. In a society marred by deepening divisions between rich and poor, our tradition recalls the story of the Last Judgment (Mt 25:31-46) and instructs us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.

THE DIGNITY OF WORK & RIGHTS OF WORKERS

The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God's creation. If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers must be respected--the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to the organization and joining of unions, to private property and to economic initiative.

SOLIDARITY

We are one human family whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic and ideological differences. We are our brothers' and sisters' keepers, wherever they may be. Loving our neighbor has global dimensions in a shrinking world. At the core of the virtue of solidarity is the pursuit of justice and peace.
"if you want peace, work for justice."

CARE FOR GOD'S CREATION

We show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God's creation. A full understanding can only be achieved by reading the papal, conciliar and episcopal documents that make up this rich tradition.

NOVEMBER PRAYER INTENTION — Joyfully Planning for the Holidays

St. Teresa of Calcutta once said, “The best way to show your gratitude to God and people is to accept everything with joy. We may not be able to give much but we can always give the joy that springs from a heart that is in love with God.”

As the holidays approach, Catholic Charities administration, staff, and volunteers are joyfully planning for Thanksgiving meals at our shelters and our annual Adopt-A-Family Christmas program to support families and individuals in need.

St. Teresa of Calcutta,

Your gratitude to God and to all to whom you ministered, was shown in accepting everything with joy. Help each of us be joyful as we look forward to and plan for the holidays. Amen.
