GMD 127: Economic Questions

Wrapping up goal number three, the bishops aim to “involve Catholics, at every level, in questions of economic systems.” These concerns were addressed in earlier USCCB documents of the 1980′s, most notably Economic Justice for All.

Strategies listed are:

  • use of professional resources in the parish and diocese to raise questions about economic systems and their consequences concerning the dominant issues of justice, particularly homelessness, social inequities, educational opportunities, housing and employment, and racial equality; and
  • formation of ministries to deal with unjust economic systems and practices.

Many parishes do a decent job at these. A small minority keep raising issues and pushing them into the Catholic conscience. Connecting this to evangelization: that’s another task.

The last four posts will wrap up the US bishops’ 1992 document on evangelization.
