Lay people have the principal responsibility to transform the social order in light of the Gospel. – USCCB 2002

The Public Life calls us to transform the social order. Biblical justice directs us toward the elimination of oppression and of everything that keeps men and women from their full development as human beings. For many people, this means eliminating the poverty and the causes of poverty that keep them at a sub-human level issues including education, housing, health care, environmental justice, racism, and global relations. Learn about the many opportunities to live out our call to justice!
