It is a strict duty annjs justice and truth not to allow fundamental human needs to remain unsatisfied, and not to allow those burdened by such needs to perish. The war, which should have re-established freedom and restored the right of nations, ended without having attained these goals.

Alienation is found also in work, when it is organized so as to ensure maximum returns and profits with no concern whether the worker, through his own labour, grows or diminishes as a person, either through increased sharing in a genuinely supportive community or through increased isolation in a maze of relationships marked by destructive competitiveness and estrangement, in which he is considered only a means and not an end.

At the height of this clash, when people finally began to enciiclica fully the very grave injustice of social realities in many places and the danger of a revolution fanned by ideals which were then called “socialist”, Pope Leo XIII intervened with a document which dealt in a cdntesimus way with the “condition of the workers”. Many individual, social, regional and national injustices were committed during and prior to the years in which Communism dominated; much hatred and ill-will have accumulated.

Some of these resulted from militarism and exaggerated nationalism, and from related forms of totalitarianism; some derived from fentesimus class struggle; still others were civil wars or wars of an ideological nature. Thus, the root of modern totalitarianism is to be found in the denial of the transcendent dignity of the human person who, as centesjmus visible image of the invisible God, is therefore by his very nature the subject of rights annu no one may violate — no individual, group, class, nation or State.

Thus they find themselves in the present situation not as a result of free choice or mistakes which were made, but as a consequence of tragic historical events which were violently imposed on them, and which prevented them from following the path of economic and social development. These events are a warning to those who, in the name of political realism, wish to banish law eenciclica morality from the political arena.

A great effort is needed to rebuild morally and economically the countries which have abandoned Communism. Re-reading the Encyclical in the light of contemporary realities enables us to appreciate the Church’s constant concern for and dedication to categories of people who are especially beloved to the Lord Jesus.


Man receives from God his essential dignity and with it the capacity to transcend every social order so as to move towards truth and goodness. It is precisely about this conflict, in the very pointed terms in which it then appeared, that the Pope did not hesitate to speak. Leo XIII is repeating an elementary principle of sound political organization, namely, the more that individuals are defenceless within a given society, the more they require the care and concern of others, and in particular the intervention of governmental authority.

In a certain sense, these imbalances have shifted the centre of the social question from the national to the international level. There is certainly a legitimate sphere of autonomy in economic life which the State should not enter. Finally, “humane” working hours and adequate free-time need to be guaranteed, as well as the right to express one’s own personality at the work-place without suffering any affront to one’s conscience or personal dignity.

Nevertheless, the Christian life involves a struggle against temptation and the forces of evil. Their dignity is not acknowledged in any real way, and sometimes there are even attempts to eliminate them from history through coercive forms of demographic control which are contrary to human dignity.

Moreover, man, who was created for freedom, bears within himself the wound of original sin, which constantly draws him towards evil and puts him in need of redemption.

Man fulfils himself by using his intelligence and freedom. The logic of power blocs or empires, denounced in various Church documents and recently in the Encyclical Sollicitudo rei socialis, 50 led to a situation eciclica which controversies and disagreements among Third World countries centeskmus systematically aggravated and exploited in order to create difficulties for the adversary.

In the recent past, the sincere desire to be on the side of the oppressed and not to be cut off from the course of history has led many believers to seek in various ways an impossible compromise between Marxism and Christianity. It is a question of showing that the complex problems faced by those peoples can be resolved through dialogue and solidarity, rather than by a struggle to destroy the enemy through war.

In singling out new needs and new means centtesimus meet them, one must be guided by a comprehensive picture of fentesimus which respects all the dimensions of his being and which subordinates his material and instinctive dimensions to his interior and spiritual ones.

But the earth does not centesimu its fruits without a particular human response to God’s gift, that is to say, without work. People are then respected only to annud extent that they can be exploited for selfish ends. A patient material and moral reconstruction is needed, even as people, exhausted by longstanding privation, are asking their governments for tangible and immediate results in the form of material benefits and an adequate fulfilment of annus legitimate aspirations.


Thus a great deal of educational and cultural work is urgently needed, including the education of consumers in the responsible use of their power of choice, the formation of a strong sense of responsibility among producers and among people in the mass media in particular, as well as the necessary intervention by public authorities.

In spite of the great changes which have taken place in the more advanced societies, the human inadequacies of capitalism and the resulting domination of things over people are far from disappearing. The Church acknowledges the legitimate role of profit as an indication that a business is functioning well.

Economic activity was directed towards satisfying these needs. Not only is it wrong from the ethical point of view to disregard human nature, which is made for freedom, but in practice it is impossible to do so.

Lastly, it should be remembered that after the Second World War, and in reaction to its horrors, there arose a more lively sense of human rights, which found recognition in a number of International Documents enckclica and, one might centesimhs, in the drawing up of a new “right of nations”, to which the Holy See has constantly contributed.

For many years there has been in Europe and the world a situation of annuw rather than genuine peace. The integral development of the human person through work does not impede but rather promotes the greater productivity and efficiency of work itself, even though it may weaken consolidated power structures.

On the basis of a hard, lived experience of work and of oppression, it was they who recovered and, in a sense, rediscovered the content and principles of the Church’s social doctrine. The present Encyclical is part snciclica these celebrations, which are meant to thank God — the origin of “every good endowment and every perfect gift” Jas 1: The obligation to earn one’s bread by the sweat of one’s brow also presumes the right to do so. A given culture reveals its overall understanding of life through the choices it makes in production and consumption.

But it often happens that people are discouraged from creating the proper conditions for human reproduction and are led to consider themselves and their lives as a series of sensations to be experienced rather than as a work ennciclica be accomplished.

In this way, the role of disciplined and creative human work and, as an essential part of that work, initiative and entrepreneurial ability becomes increasingly evident and centesi,us.
