Gospel Values:

The Roots of Catholic Social Teaching

 

     Gospel Values are the basis of Christianity.  Before the 20th century they were primarily applied to individual and interpersonal relationships.

 Beginning with the encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII at the end of the 19th century, and culminating with the Documents of the Second Vatican

Council in 1962, Gospel Values provided the foundation for Catholic Social Teaching by extending them beyond personal relationships to

the systems, structures and social institutions of modern life.

 

                                      

    All of the Gospel Values begin with and derive from Jesus' Law of Love:

 

wRespect for the Life and Dignity of Each Individual

wTrust in God 

wHonesty

wCompassion

wForgiveness

wMercy

wCommunity

wServant Leadership

wEquality

wSimplicity

wJustice

       wPeace
