Call to Family, Community, and Participation

At the heart of Catholic social tradition is the understanding that the human person is not only sacred but also social. How we organize our society—in economics and politics, in law and policy—directly affects human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community.

Marriage and the family are central institutions that constitute society. People have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.
