If development were concerned with merely technical aspects of human life, and not with the meaning of man’s pilgrimage through history in company with his fellow human beings, nor with identifying the goal of that journey, then the Church would not be entitled to speak on it. Labour and technical knowledge are a universal good.

In the notion of development, understood in human and Christian terms, he identified the heart of the Christian social messageand he proposed Christian charity as the principal force at the service of development.

What should be avoided is a speculative use of financial resources that yields to the temptation of seeking only short-term profit, without regard for the long-term sustainability of the enterprise, its benefit to the real economy and attention to the advancement, in suitable and appropriate ways, of further economic initiatives in countries in need of development.

The idea of a world without development indicates a lack of trust in man and in God. On this point too, there is a convergence between economic science and moral evaluation.

Pope’s new encyclical “Charity in Truth” on social teaching –

When we consider the issues involved in the relationship between business and ethicsas well as the evolution currently taking place in methods of production, it would appear that the traditionally valid distinction between profit-based companies and non-profit organizations can no longer do full justice to reality, or offer practical direction for the future.

After the collapse of the economic and political systems of the Communist countries of Eastern Europe and the end of the so-called opposing blocsa complete re-examination of development was needed. For the Church, instructed by the Gospel, charity is everything because, as Saint John teaches cf. On the one hand, charity demands justice: Natural resources must be acknowledged as gifts of God, belonging to all.


It would be wrong to uphold one set of duties while trampling on the other.

On veriitate other hand, formerly prosperous nations are presently passing through a phase of uncertainty and in some cases decline, precisely because of their falling birth rates; this has become a crucial problem for encyklika caritas in veritate affluent societies.

From the social point of view, systems of protection and welfare, already present in many countries in Paul VI’s day, are finding it hard and could find it even harder in the future to veriatte their goals of true social justice in today’s profoundly changed environment.

From this standpoint, international organizations might question the actual effectiveness of their bureaucratic and administrative machinery, which is often excessively costly.

The crisis thus becomes an opportunity for discernment, in which to shape a new vision for the future. My predecessor John Paul II drew attention to this question in Centesimus Annuswhen he spoke of the need for a system with three subjects: John Paul proposed a family wagei.

According to the Pope, it was not just a matter of correcting dysfunctions through assistance.

It is therefore helpful to consider these texts too in relation to Populorum Progressio. Moreover, the so-called outsourcing of production can weaken the company’s sense of responsibility towards the stakeholders — namely the workers, the suppliers, the consumers, carjtas natural environment and broader society — in favour of the shareholders, who are not tied to a specific geographical area and who therefore enjoy extraordinary mobility.

It is an instrument and an indispensable setting for formation in faith. Its source is the wellspring of the Father’s love for the Son, in the Holy Spirit.

The global market has stimulated first and foremost, on the part of rich countries, a search for areas in which to outsource production at low cost with a view to encykliia the prices of many goods, increasing purchasing power and thus accelerating the rate of development in terms of greater availability of consumer goods for the domestic market.

It is shaped by the cultural configurations which define it and give it direction.



In this way he caritsa applying on a global scale the insights and aspirations contained in Rerum Novarumwritten when, as a result of the Industrial Revolution, the idea was first proposed — somewhat ahead of its time — that the civil order, for its self-regulation, also needed intervention from the State for purposes of redistribution. Each of them requires and expresses a specific business capacity.

The Christian religion and other religions can offer their contribution to development only if God has a place in the public realmspecifically in regard to its cultural, social, economic, and particularly its political dimensions. On the one verifate, charity demands justice: Idealizing technical progress, or contemplating the utopia of a return to humanity’s original natural state, are two contrasting ways of detaching progress from its moral evaluation and cariats from our responsibility.

A Christianity of charity without truth would be more or less interchangeable with a pool of good sentiments, helpful for social cohesion, but of little relevance. Desertification and the decline in productivity in some agricultural areas are also the result of impoverishment and underdevelopment among their inhabitants.

At the same time, in some poor countries, cultural models and social norms of behaviour persist which hinder the process of development. In a modern work-space it becomes very complex to establish ownership rights. Jn the one hand, appeals are made to alleged rights, arbitrary and non-essential in nature, accompanied by the demand that they be recognized and promoted by public structures, while, on the other hand, elementary and basic rights remain unacknowledged and are violated in much of the world [].

In other words, there would no longer be any real place for God in the world. To create labor policies that ensure justice for every worker, it is necessary not only to work with the vrritate employers, but also to identify and coordinate the indirect employers. This doctrine is a service to charity, but its locus is truth.
