Explore 10 essential Church teachings with one of America’s most celebrated Catholic educators as your guide. Join Fr. William J. Byron, S.J., former president of the Catholic University of America, in this engaging 12-talk series.
This course will challenge and energize you about your Catholic faith as a powerful force for good in the world.
You’ll discover insightful contributions from a broad range of Catholic thinkers - lay, religious, and clergy - whose ideas help to explain and supplement the papal encyclicals, conciliar declarations, and statements from national bishops’ conferences that make up the documentary body of Catholic social teaching.
As you listen to this series, Catholic social teaching will come alive in your heart and mind. You’ll gain special access to this body of doctrine in the form of “credenda” (principles to be believed) that can become the basis of an “agenda” (actions to be taken) in order to build a better world.
You will cover topics such as the principle of human dignity and grapple with the question of how we can ensure that people and nations live together in peace secured by justice. As Fr. Byron reveals, the protection of fundamental human dignity requires that the question be asked at all times, and the organization of human life requires that it be asked in all areas of human activity.
