“It’s important for the entire church that welcoming the poor and promoting justice not be entrusted only to ‘specialists,’ but that it be given attention in all of pastoral life, in the formation of future priests and religious, in the normal activities of parishes, and in movements and other church groups.” ~ Pope Francis
“By our baptism, Catholics are committed to following Jesus Christ and to be “salt for the earth, light for the nations. It is necessary that all participate, according to his position and role, in promoting the common good. This is inherent in the dignity of the human person… As far as possible citizens should take an active part in public life” (Catechism of the Catholic Church nos. 1913-1915).
