Catholic Social Thought and the Law

"Each community is defined by its purpose and consequently obeys specific rules; but 'the human person . . . is and ought to be the principle, the subject and the end of all social institutions.'" - (#1881) Catechism of the Catholic Church

"Peace is the fruit of the right ordering of things with which the divine founder has invested human society and which must be brought about by humanity in its thirst for an ever more perfect reign of justice." - (#78) Gaudium et Spes, Vatican Council II
