The Social Agenda

The Social Agenda is a Web site of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. It is a very useful reference available in six languages.

The introduction to the Web site reads as follows:
Students, teachers, and all those who seek a better knowledge of the social doctrine of the Church will find contained within this collection the central statements of the Roman Pontiffs from a range of texts, including papal encyclicals, apostolic letters, and Conciliar documents, on matters relating to politics, economics, and culture.

The selections are arranged thematically according to the significant subject areas of Catholic social doctrine. Under each subject heading, the quotations appear in pedagogical—as opposed to chronological or magisterial—order, with each subject area opening with a quotation that explains the issue at hand.

For resources on Catholic Social teachings, you can also consult our listings of web sites on the Resources for Catholic Educators Web site: Social Justice and Peace.
