The pro­gres­sive devel­op­ment of peo­ples is an object of deep inter­est and con­cern to the Church. This is par­tic­u­lar­ly true in the case of those peo­ples who are try­ing to escape the rav­ages of hunger, pover­ty, endem­ic dis­ease and igno­rance; of those who are seek­ing a larg­er share in the ben­e­fits of civ­i­liza­tion and a more active improve­ment of their human qual­i­ties; of those who are con­scious­ly striv­ing for fuller growth.
