From the earliest social ethics of the Judeo-Christian tradition to Pope Francis’s pastoral letters, students will delve into the Church’s accumulated wisdom on social issues that affect a more humane living and consider our Gospel call to respond. This course will offer a practical theological component as part of the learning experience.
