Economic Justice

Every economic decision and institution must be judged in light of whether it protects or undermines the dignity of the human person. We believe the person is sacred — the clearest reflection of God among us. Human dignity comes from God, not from nationality, race, sex, economic status, or any human accomplishment. We judge any economic system by what it does for and to people and by how it permits all to participate in it. The economy should serve people, not the other way around. Economic Justice for All
