A Statement on Poverty in New Jersey by The Catholic Bishops of New Jersey English | Spanish
Caritas in Veritate Caritas in Veritate, Pope Benedict’s third encyclical, is a call to see the relationship between human and environmental ecologies and to link charity and truth in the pursuit of justice, the common good, and authentic human development. In doing so, the pope points out the responsibilities and limitations of government and the private market, challenges traditional ideologies of right and left, and calls all men and women to think and act anew.
continue the mission of Jesus bringing glad tidings to the poor...proclaiming
liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, letting the
oppressed go free and announcing a year acceptable to the Lord.
