Reclaiming Catholic Social Teaching: A Defense of The Church's True Teachings on Marriage, Family and The State

In this book, Anthony Esolen unapologetically defends the authentic social teachings of the Church as articulated by Pope Leo XIII — widely considered to be the father of Catholic Social Teaching. Esolen pulls back the curtain on those who falsely claim that Church social teaching implies the existence of a secular and bureaucratic welfare state, arguing instead that any authentic teaching must focus first on building and stabilizing the most fundamental unit of society — the family. Only then can a virtuous society be built that leads us toward our purpose on earth: sanctification.

Justice and Charity

The dominating influence of Capitalism and Communism over modern societies has eclipsed the Catholic Church’s communication of her social and economic principles. Campaigns to win the affections of the faithful have persuaded many that Capitalism—with its promise of unlimited freedom and praise for the accumulation of wealth—is an authentic expression of Catholic social teaching and that the richness of the social tradition with its preferential option for the poor is driven by class-hatred, envy, and egalitarianism.

Grounded in his expertise of the social doctrine of the Catholic Church, Fulton J. Sheen explores how Capitalism’s failure to submit to justice and Communism’s rejection of Christian Charity can be corrected only by a revolution in the heart of men by means of encountering Jesus Christ.

Back in print for the first time since its original publication, Justice and Charity is a thought-provoking exploration into the social tradition of the Catholic Church led by one of her finest voices.
