The world that Paul VI had before him — even though society had already evolved to such an extent that he could speak of social issues in global terms — was still far less integrated than today’s world. The articulation of political authority at the local, national and international levels is one of the best ways of giving direction to the process of economic globalization. Further grounds for concern are laws permitting euthanasia as well as pressure from lobby groups, nationally and internationally, in favour of its juridical recognition.
A Christianity of charity without truth would be more or less interchangeable with a pool of good sentiments, helpful for social cohesion, but of little relevance.
The technologically advanced societies can and must lower their domestic energy consumption, either through an evolution in manufacturing methods or through greater ecological sensitivity among their citizens. Research centres and seminars encylcique business ethics are on the rise; the system of ethical certification is spreading throughout the developed world as part of the movement of ideas associated with the responsibilities of business towards society.
Peace in and among peoples would also provide greater protection for nature. Nature speaks to us of the Creator cf. From this standpoint, international organizations might question the actual effectiveness of their bureaucratic and administrative machinery, which is often excessively costly. First, one may observe a cultural eclecticism vertiate is evritate assumed uncritically: Love — caritas — is an extraordinary force which leads people to opt for courageous and generous engagement in the field of justice and peace.
It is true that the export of investments and skills can benefit the populations of the receiving country. At a distance of over forty years from the Encyclical’s publication, I intend to pay tribute and to honour the memory of the great Caritsa Paul VI, revisiting his teachings on integral human development and taking my place within the path that they marked out, so as to apply them to the present moment.
He invited us to search for them in other dimensions of the human person: For a long time it was thought that poor peoples should remain at a fixed stage of development, and should be content to receive assistance from the philanthropy of developed peoples. Charity is at the heart of the Church’s social doctrine. The current crisis obliges us to re-plan our journey, to set ourselves new rules and to discover new forms of commitment, to build on positive experiences and to reject negative ones.
Due attention must obviously be given to responsible procreation, which among other things has a positive contribution to make to integral human development. Much in fact depends on the underlying system of morality. For these reasons, Populorum Progressiosituated within the great current of Tradition, can still speak to us today. The dynamics of inclusion are hardly automatic. Paul VI in Populorum Progressio called for the creation of a model of market economy capable of including within its range all peoples and not just the better off.
Sur la Lettre Encyclique “Caritas in Veritate”
Charity is not an added extra, like an appendix to work already concluded in each of the various disciplines: It is in the interests of the market to promote emancipation, but in order to do so effectively, it cannot rely only on itself, because it is not able to produce by itself something that lies outside its competence. Paul VI set out from this vision in order to convey two important truths. Motivated by the wish to make Christ’s love fully visible to contemporary men and women, Paul VI addressed important ethical questions robustly, without yielding to the cultural weaknesses of his time.
Today the material resources available for rescuing these peoples from poverty are potentially greater than before, but they have ended up largely in the hands of people from developed countries, who have benefited more from the liberalization that has occurred in the mobility of capital and labour.
Furthermore, smaller and at times miniscule families run the risk of impoverishing social relations, and failing to ensure effective forms of solidarity. This principle is extremely important for society and for development, since neither can be a purely human product; the vocation to development on the part of individuals and peoples is not based simply on human choice, but is an intrinsic part of a plan that is prior to us and constitutes for all of us a duty to be freely accepted.
Because it is a gift received by everyone, charity in truth is a force that builds community, it brings all people together without imposing barriers or limits. In particular, in the light of the revealed mystery of the Trinitywe understand that true openness does not mean loss of individual identity but profound interpenetration.
The sharing of goods and resources, from which authentic development proceeds, is not guaranteed by merely technical progress and relationships of utility, but by the potential of love that overcomes evil with good cf. Thinking of this kind requires a deeper critical evaluation of the category of relation.
Not only is this vision threatened today by the way in which markets and societies are opening up, but it is evidently insufficient to satisfy the demands of a fully humane economy. The same holds true for peoples as well.
Caritas in veritate (June 29, ) | BENEDICT XVI
In recent years a new cosmopolitan class of managers has emerged, who are often answerable only to the shareholders generally consisting of anonymous funds which de facto determine their remuneration.
When we consider the issues involved in the relationship between business verktate ethicsas well cartas the evolution currently taking place in methods of production, it would appear that the traditionally valid distinction between profit-based companies and non-profit organizations can no longer do full justice to reality, or offer practical direction for the future. The hoarding of resources, especially water, can generate serious conflicts among the peoples involved.
In view of the complexity of the issues, it is obvious that the various disciplines have to work together through an orderly interdisciplinary exchange.
