(JPIC) Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation
A passion for justice, a desire for peace, a concern for creation is essential to the living out of the Gospel. They are not optional extras but a way of life.
Our Church’s Social Teaching on justice is rich in wisdom about building a just society. Here are several of the key themes: Life and dignity of the Human Person – Human life is sacred and the dignity of human life is the foundation of a moral vision for Society. Human life is also social, so how we organise our society directly affects human dignity. Human dignity must be protected and a healthy community can only be achieved if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. A basic moral test for society is how the most vulnerable members are faring.
See below for some of the ways we try to help bring this about.
