TOP POPES' QUOTES ABOUT CATHOLIC SOCIAL JUSTICE
1. It Is More Important To Love Than To Obey
"Take care of the poor and the outcast! The Bible is full of these exhortations. The Lord says: it is not important to me that you do this or that, it is important to me that the orphan is cared for, that the widow is cared for, that the outcast person is heard, that creation is protected. This is the Kingdom of God!"
Pope Francis, Homily, 2014
2. Jesus Is There When People Suffer
“Where is God? Where is God, if evil is present in our world, if there are men and women who are hungry and thirsty, homeless, exiles and refugees..? These are questions that humanly speaking have no answer. But Jesus’ answer is ‘God is in them.’ Jesus is in them; he suffers in them and deeply identifies with each of them, He is so closely united to them as to form with them, as it were, ‘one body.’”
Pope Francis, Way of the Cross at World Youth Day, 2016.
3. Let's Have Social Institutions For The Human Person
“The goal of all social institutions is and must be the human person which for its part and by its very nature stands completely in need of social life.”
Pope Paul 6th, Joy and Hope, 25
