Aprender a Vivir En Comunidad – Enciclica Centesimus Annus
This need, however, must not lead to a slackening of efforts to sustain and assist the countries of the Third World, which often suffer even more serious conditions of poverty and want. La non-storia del pensiero medievale nell’enciclica Fides et ratio.
This goal calls for programmed and responsible efforts on the part of the entire international community. Thus a great deal of educational and cultural work is urgently needed, including the education of consumers in the responsible use of their power of choice, the formation of a strong sense of responsibility among producers and among people in the mass media in particular, as well as the necessary intervention by public authorities.
Nowadays there is a tendency to claim that agnosticism and sceptical relativism are the philosophy and the basic attitude which correspond to democratic forms of political life. A person who is deprived of something he can call “his own”, and of the possibility of earning a living through his own initiative, comes to depend on the social machine and on those who control it.
Aprender a Vivir En Comunidad – Enciclica Centesimus Annus : Silvia Jauregui :
Would that these words, written at a time when what has been called “unbridled capitalism” was pressing forward, should not have to be repeated today with the same severity. Here we find the first reflection for our times as suggested by the Encyclical.
In doing likewise for the hundredth anniversary, in response to requests from many Bishops, Church institutions, and study centres, as well as business leaders and workers, both individually and as members of associations, I wish first and foremost to satisfy the debt of gratitude which the whole Church owes to this great Pope and his “immortal document”.
But no political society — which possesses its own autonomy and laws 55 — can ever be confused with the Kingdom of God. In our time, in particular, there exists another form of ownership which is becoming no less important than land: Not only has there been a development in awareness of the rights of individuals, but also in awareness of the rights of nations, as well as a clearer realization of the need to act in order to remedy the grave imbalances that exist between the various geographical areas of the world.
The original source of all that is good is the very act of God, who created both the earth and man, and who gave the earth to man so that he might have dominion over it by his work and enjoy its fruits Gen 1: Instead of carrying out his role as a co-operator with God in the work of creation, man sets himself up in place of God and thus ends up provoking a rebellion on the part of nature, which is more tyrannized than governed by him.
In the light of today’s “new things”, we have re-read the relationship between individual or private property and the universal destination of material wealth. This demands renewed efforts of cooperation and solidarity between all countries. Socialism likewise maintains that the good of the individual can be realized without reference to his free choice, to the unique and exclusive responsibility which he exercises in the face of good or evil.
It is by uniting his own sufferings for the sake of truth and freedom to the sufferings of Christ on the Cross that man is able to accomplish the miracle of peace and is in a position to discern the often narrow path between the cowardice which gives in to evil and the violence which, under the illusion of fighting evil, only makes it worse. Here we recall the Jewish people in particular, whose terrible fate has become a symbol of the aberration of which man is capable when he turns against God.

Andrzej Filipiak – – Civitas 3 3: The Teaching of Centesimus Annus. Science used for military purposes had placed this decisive instrument at the disposal of hatred, strengthened by ideology. It has further highlighted the reality of interdependence among peoples, as well as the fact that human work, by its nature, is meant to unite peoples, not divide them. Certainly the mechanisms of the market offer secure advantages: A great effort is needed to rebuild morally and economically the countries which have abandoned Communism.
At the same time, encic,ica has a “social” dimension through its intimate relationship not only to the family, but encilcica to the common good, since “it may truly be said that centeesimus is only by the labour of working-men that States grow rich”. But the true cause of the new developments was the spiritual void brought about by atheism, which deprived the younger generations of a sense of direction and in many cases led them, in the cehtesimus search for personal identity and for the meaning of life, to rediscover the religious roots of their national cultures, and to rediscover the person of Christ himself as the existentially adequate response to the desire in every human heart for goodness, truth and life.
Socialism considers the individual person simply as an element, a molecule within the social organism, so that the good of the individual enciclic completely subordinated to the functioning of the socio-economic mechanism.
Amid changing historical circumstances, this movement has contributed to the building up of a more just society or at least to the curbing of injustice. One Protestant Looks at Centesimus Annus. The fall of Marxism has naturally had a great impact on the division of the planet into worlds which are closed to one another and in jealous competition.
Marxism thus ends up by affirming that only in a collective society can alienation be eliminated. This is the right to a “just wage”, which cannot be left to the “free consent of the parties, so that the employer, having paid what was agreed upon, has done his part and seemingly is not called upon to do anything beyond”. In the face of a conflict which set man against man, almost as if they were “wolves”, a conflict between the extremes of mere physical survival on the one side and opulence on the other, the Pope did not hesitate to intervene by virtue of his “apostolic office”, 9 that is, on the basis of the mission received from Jesus Christ himself to “feed his lambs and tend his sheep” cf.
Although people are rightly worried — though much less than they should be — about preserving the natural habitats of the various animal species threatened with extinction, because they realize that each of these species makes its particular contribution to the balance of nature in general, too little effort is made to safeguard the moral conditions for an authentic “human ecology”.
Today, at a distance of a hundred years, the validity of this approach affords me the opportunity to contribute to the development of Christian social doctrine. In reality, while on the one hand it is true that this social model shows the failure of Marxism to contribute to a humane and better society, on the other hand, insofar as it denies an autonomous existence and value to morality, law, culture and religion, it agrees with Marxism, in the sense that it totally reduces man to the sphere of economics and the satisfaction of material needs.
This should not however lead us to think that Pope Leo expected the State to solve every social problem. There is certainly a legitimate sphere of autonomy in economic life which the State should not enter.
Abela – – Journal of Business Ethics 31 2: This influence is evident in the numerous reforms which were introduced in the areas of social security, pensions, health insurance and compensation in the case of accidents, within the framework of greater respect for the rights of workers. When man does not recognize in himself and in others the value and grandeur of the human person, he effectively deprives himself of the possibility of benefitting from his humanity and of entering into that relationship of solidarity and communion with others for which God created him.
In a sense, for some countries of Europe the real post-war period is just beginning. Pope Pius XI refers to it with the equally meaningful term “social charity”.
Otherwise, there would be a violation of that law of justice which ordains that every person should receive his due. Work becomes ever more fruitful and productive to the extent that people become more knowledgeable of the productive potentialities of the earth and more profoundly cognisant of the needs of those for whom their work is done.
In so doing he utilizes the things of this world centesimuz objects and instruments and makes them his own. In a certain sense, it was a struggle born of prayer, and it would have been unthinkable without immense trust in God, the Lord of history, who carries the human heart in his hands. In defending her own freedom, the Church is also defending the human person, who must obey God rather than men cf.
The advancement of the poor constitutes a eciclica opportunity for the moral, cultural and even economic growth of all humanity.
The State, however, has the task of determining the juridical framework within which economic affairs are to be conducted, and thus of safeguarding the prerequisites of a free economy, which presumes a certain equality between the parties, such that one party would not be so powerful as practically to reduce the other to snciclica.
