Fratelli Tutti 106: The Worth Of Every Human Person

How do we promote the human person? And not theoretically, but in every instance? It must be an aim.

A UNIVERSAL LOVE THAT PROMOTES PERSONS

  1. Social friendship and universal fraternity necessarily call for an acknowledgement of the worth of every human person, always and everywhere. If each individual is of such great worth, it must be stated clearly and firmly that “the mere fact that some people are born in places with fewer resources or less development does not justify the fact that they are living with less dignity”.[Evangelii Gaudium 190] This is a basic principle of social life that tends to be ignored in a variety of ways by those who sense that it does not fit into their worldview or serve their purposes.
