This demands renewed efforts of cooperation and solidarity between all countries. For this reason the struggle to defend work was spontaneously linked to the struggle for culture and cnetesimus national rights. Allured by the dazzle of an opulence which is beyond their reach, and at the same time driven by necessity, centesimis people crowd the cities of the Third World where they are often without cultural roots, and where they are exposed to situations of violent uncertainty, without the possibility of becoming integrated.

Man receives from God his essential dignity and with it the capacity to transcend every social order so as to move towards truth and goodness. Instead, it has been overcome by the non-violent commitment of people who, while always refusing amnus yield to the force of power, succeeded time annuw time in finding effective ways of bearing witness to the truth. Leo XIII is repeating an elementary principle of sound political organization, namely, the more that individuals are defenceless within a given society, the more they require the care and concern of others, and in particular the intervention of governmental authority.

But it also corresponds to the interest and welfare of Europe as a whole, since Europe cannot live in peace if the various conflicts which have arisen as a result of the past are to become more acute because of a situation of economic disorder, spiritual dissatisfaction and desperation. The atheism of which we are speaking is also closely connected with the rationalism of the Enlightenment, which views human and social reality in a mechanistic way.

Miscellanea Francescana 91 However, what is condemned in class struggle is the idea that conflict is not restrained by ethical or juridical considerations, or by respect for the dignity of others and consequently of oneself ; a reasonable compromise is thus excluded, and what is pursued is not the general good of society, but a partisan interest which replaces the common good and sets out to destroy whatever stands in its way.

The social order will be all the more stable, the more it takes this fact into account and does not place in opposition personal interest and the interests of society as a whole, but rather seeks ways to bring them into fruitful harmony. His needs were few and were determined, to a degree, by the objective structures of his physical make-up.

When this question is eliminated, the culture and moral life of nations are corrupted. It will be useful to return later to this important subject of the limits inherent in the nature of the state. In this context, an abundance of work opportunities, a solid system of social security and professional training, the freedom to join trade unions and the effective action of unions, the assistance provided in cases of unemployment, the opportunities for democratic participation in the life of society — all these are meant to deliver work from the mere condition of “a commodity”, and to guarantee its dignity.

Aprender a Vivir En Comunidad – Enciclica Centesimus Annus : Silvia Jauregui :

In defending her own freedom, the Church is also defending the human person, who must obey God rather than men cf. In the face of a conflict which set man against man, almost as if they were “wolves”, a conflict between the extremes of mere physical survival on the one side and opulence on the other, the Pope did not hesitate to intervene by virtue of his “apostolic office”, 9 that is, on the basis of the mission received from Jesus Christ himself to “feed his lambs and tend his sheep” cf.


The war, which should have re-established freedom and restored the right of nations, ended without having attained annus goals. These objectives include a sufficient wage for the support of the family, social insurance for old age and unemployment, and adequate protection for the conditions of employment.

Indeed, besides the earth, man’s principal resource is man himself. A patient material and moral reconstruction is needed, even as people, exhausted by longstanding privation, are asking their governments for tangible and immediate results in the form of material benefits and an adequate fulfilment of their legitimate aspirations.

This should not however lead us to think that Pope Leo expected the State to solve every social problem. By means of his work man commits himself, not only for his own sake but also for others and with others. Indeed, it is through the free gift of self that man truly finds himself. The concept of alienation needs to be led back to the Christian vision of reality, by recognizing centesimud alienation a reversal of means and ends.

To call for an existence which is qualitatively more satisfying is of itself legitimate, but centesinus cannot fail to draw attention to the new responsibilities and dangers connected with this phase of history. Pope Leo XIII was aware of the need for a sound theory of the State in order to ensure the normal development of man’s spiritual and temporal activities, both of which are indispensable. The Pope is well aware that private property is not an absolute value, nor does he fail to proclaim the necessary complementary principles, such as the universal destination of the earth’s goods.

In our time, the role of human work is becoming increasingly important as the productive factor both of non-material and of material wealth. On the contrary, he frequently insists on necessary limits to the State’s intervention and on its instrumental character, centesiums as the individual, the family and society are prior to the State, and inasmuch as the State exists in order to protect their rights and not stifle them.

In history, these two factors — work and the land — are to be found at the beginning of every human society. When man does not recognize in himself and in others the value and grandeur of the human person, he effectively deprives himself of the possibility of benefitting from his humanity and of entering into that relationship of centeesimus and communion with others for which God created him.

The Pope and the Church with him were confronted, as was the civil community, by a society which annsu torn by a conflict all the more harsh and inhumane because it knew no rule or regulation. It is his disciplined work in close collaboration with others that makes possible the creation of ever more extensive working communities which can be relied upon to centesimu man’s natural and human environments.

Like Pope Leo and the Popes before and after him, I take my inspiration from the Gospel image of “the scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven”, whom the Lord compares to “a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old” Mt Economic activity is indeed but one sector in a great variety of human activities, cenfesimus like every other sector, it includes annuw right to freedom, as well as the duty of making responsible use of freedom.

It is by responding to the call of God contained in the being of things that man becomes aware of his transcendent dignity. In Third World contexts, certain objectives stated by Rerum novarum remain valid, and, in some cases, still constitute a goal yet to be reached, if man’s work and his very being are not to be reduced to the level of a mere commodity.


Miglietta – – Alpha Omega 3 3: The culture and praxis of totalitarianism also involve a rejection of the Church. Among the many factors involved in the fall of oppressive regimes, some deserve special mention. In a word, it is a question of transferring to the sphere of internal conflict between social groups the doctrine of “total war”, which the militarism and imperialism of that time brought to bear on international relations. During the same period a widespread process of “decolonization” occurred, by which ebciclica countries gained or regained their independence and the right freely to determine their own destiny.

Re-reading this teaching on the right to property and the common destination of material wealth as it applies to the present time, the question can be raised concerning the origin of the material goods which sustain human life, satisfy people’s needs and are an object of their rights.

In the sphere of economics, in which scientific discoveries and their practical application come together, new structures for the production of consumer goods had progressively taken shape. This seems to be the most urgent problem which the international community has yet to resolve. The result of this transformation was a society “divided into two classes, separated by a deep chasm”. It is the task of the State to provide for the defence and preservation of common goods such as the natural and human environments, which cannot be safeguarded simply by market forces.

Then there are the other social forces and ideological movements which oppose Marxism by setting up systems of “national security”, aimed at controlling the whole of society in a systematic way, in order to make Marxist infiltration impossible.

Economic activity was directed towards satisfying these needs.

Still, we must acknowledge that its prophetic message was not fully accepted by people at the cengesimus. At the height of this clash, when people finally began to realize fully the very grave injustice of social realities in many places and the danger of a revolution fanned by ideals which were then called “socialist”, Pope Leo XIII intervened with a document which dealt in a systematic way with the “condition of the workers”.

As in the days of Pope Leo XIII, this doctrine is still suitable for indicating the right way to respond to the great challenges of today, when ideologies are being increasingly discredited.

Abela – – Journal of Business Ethics 31 2: If by “capitalism” is meant an economic system which recognizes the fundamental and positive role of business, the market, private property and the resulting responsibility for the means of production, as well as free human creativity in the economic sector, then the answer is certainly in the affirmative, even though it would perhaps be more appropriate to speak of a “business encicliva, “market economy” or simply “free economy”.

These passages are relevant today, especially in the face of the new forms of poverty in the world, and also because they are affirmations which do not depend on a specific notion of the State or on a particular political theory.

It would not be mistaken to see in this clear statement a springboard for the principle of the right to religious freedom, which was to become the subject of many solemn International Declarations and Conventions, centesimhs as well as of the Second Vatican Council’s well-known Declaration and of my own repeated teaching.
