Justicia in Mundo, Justice in the World
The 1971 Synod of Bishops, in their reflection on “the mission of the People of God to further justice in the world,” affirms the right to a culturally-sensitive, personalized development. The Bishops teach that Gospel principles mandate justice for the liberation of all humanity as an essential expression of Christian love. The Church must witness for justice through its own lifestyle, educational activities, and international action. Structural sin is discussed.
