Today we finished up our first week of reading through the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church. (Here’s the reading)
Let’s re-read paragraph 33 of the CSDC:
The commandment of mutual love, which represents the law of life for God’s people,must inspire, purify and elevate all human relationships in society and in politics. “To be human means to be called to interpersonal communion”, because the image and the likeness of the Trinitarian God are the basis of the whole of “human ‘ethos‘, which reaches its apex in the commandment of love”. The modern cultural, social, economic and political phenomenon of interdependence, which intensifies and makes particularly evident the bonds that unite the human family, accentuates once more, in the light of Revelation, “a new model of the unity of the human race, which must ultimately inspire our solidarity. This supreme model of unity, which is a reflection of the intimate life of God, one God in three Persons, is what we Christians mean by the word ‘communion‘”.
It is important to ask ourselves the following question, “How do we actualize Trinitarian love in things like the economy?”
Let’s transform our society so that all things we do are done in mutual love.
