The New Evangelization and Catholic Social Doctrine on Business

Catholic business leaders have always held great responsibility as witnesses to the Catholic faith through their daily interactions with the secular world.  Today more than ever, as the Church enters the period of New Evangelization, their role in society cannot be understated.   

The New Evangelization “calls each of us to deepen our faith, believe in the Gospel message and go forth to proclaim the Gospel.”  For the Catholic business leader especially, this will require not only a renewal of personal faith but also an increased knowledge of the Church’s teachings as they apply to business.   

But where does one go to learn about Catholic Social Doctrine on business?  These teachings have developed over many years as the Church has responded to specific issues and questions.  As a result, these teachings are not found in any one document but are spread throughout a breadth of Church documents.   

A Catechism for Business draws together the Church’s Social Doctrine on business, organized by topic and question.  It serves as a reference guide for Catholic business leaders who wish to deepen their faith and grow in their understanding of Catholic Social Doctrine as applied to business.
