Christian Morality Social Justice and Chapter D Working

Christian Morality Social Justice and Chapter D Working for Justice Chapter Summary Working for Justice lassedesignen/www.shutterstock.com

In this chapter (a continuation of chapter 45 in the Handbook), you will consider the concepts of common good, Catholic social teaching, and solidarity. You will come to realize that in order for an action to support the common good, it must be good for the whole of society, not just for one group or one individual. As Catholics, we are called to stand together in solidarity with those who are disenfranchised. The welfare of the earth itself is part of our stewardship

and is addressed in this chapter. Together for Good (Handbook, pages 493496) We all have a duty to work together for the common good. Artishok/www.shutterstock.com Together for Good (Handbook, pages 493496)

God asks us to work for the common good of all. Helping those in need is everybodys responsibility. God calls us to work at local, state, national, and global levels to help bring about social justice. Together for Good (Handbook, pages 493496) Activity 1. Look up the definition of common good in the

Handbook. 2. Create a list of synonyms and antonyms for this word. 3. Each of you will write one synonym and one antonym on the board. 4. Discuss as a class! carmen2011/www.shutterstock.com The Secret Is Out (Part 1) (Handbook, pages 496497)

We are called to live the truths of Catholic social teaching. SilviaJansen/www.istockphoto.com The Secret Is Out (Part 1) (Handbook, pages 496497) Catholic social teaching recognizes the human dignity of each person. Catholic social teaching is concerned with making sure all people have what they need.

When members of our society lack basic needs, the whole society suffers. The Secret Is Out (Part 1) (Handbook, pages 496497) Activity: Stand Out for Justice 1. Your teacher will arrange the class into groups of two or three. 2. Your group will be assigned one of the following quotes:

If you want peace, work for justice. (Pope Paul VI) Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. (Martin Luther King Jr.) Let us remember that justice must be rendered even to the lowest. (Cicero) It is in justice that the ordering of society is centered. (Aristotle) I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice. (Abraham Lincoln) Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

3. Design a poster featuring your quote. hidesy/www.istockphoto.com The Secret Is Out (Part 2) (Handbook, pages 498499) We are called to live in solidarity with others, especially those in need. shapecharge/www.istockphoto.com

The Secret Is Out (Part 2) (Handbook, pages 498499) Jesus sent us to bring Good News to those who are poor, through charity and justice. Everyone is our brother and sister. In solidarity, we can work together for justice and peace. The Secret Is Out (Part 2) (Handbook, pages 498499) Activity: Revolution of the Heart

1. Your teacher will arrange the class into pairs. 2. In pairs, read together People of Faith: Dorothy Day on page 501 in the Handbook. 3. Discuss this quote: The greatest challenge of the day is how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us. (Reminder: A revolution does not imply violence, only change.) 4. Ask yourselves, how would you start a revolution of the heart? Then create a poster encouraging others to join your revolution. Illustrate the poster with appropriate images.

(Handbook, page 500) God tells us to care for all of creation. Like the Iroquois, we should make environmental decisions based on how they will affect the next seven generations.
