ESSENTIAL FOR MODERN CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RENEWAL

Pope Leo XIII is the modern patriarch of Christian social thought. From the perspective of God’s Law, he took a critical look at both capitalism and communism, which he argued are both in need of redemption. Having recourse to both natural and divine law, he was able to clarify the proper understanding of private property, the relationship of labor and capital, the demands of justice and charity, of democracy and the source of power and authority, of authentic freedom, and of the proper relationship between Church and State, the spiritual and temporal realms in a democratic society.

Product Description

Pope Leo XIII 
Kolbe’s Greatest Books Volume 76

Pope Leo XIII (1810-1903) was pope for 25 years (1878-1903) during which time he guided the Church into the modern world. Leo is best know  as the “Father of Modern Papal Social Teaching”. As such, his encyclical “Rerum Novarum” is known as the “Magna Carta” of Catholic social doctrine. He was also a  great devote of the Virgin Mary and of her rosary and scapular, which he saw as instrumental to spiritual renewal effecting the temporal order. Leo was a staunch opponent of Liberalism, but tempered his opposition with charity and a diplomatic understanding of political, economic and social renewal in the light of the Divine Law and of natural reason.
