In actual fact, human society now, for the reason that it is founded on classes with divergent aims and hence encyyklika to one another and therefore inclined to enmity and strife, continues to be in a violent condition and is unstable and uncertain.
Part of a series on the. Property, that is, “capital,” has undoubtedly long been able to appropriate too much to itself. Evangelii Gaudium Laudato si’. Yet, if we look into the matter more carefully and more thoroughly, we shall clearly perceive that, preceding this ardently desired social restoration, there must be a renewal rsrum the Christian spirit, from which so many immersed in economic life have, far and wide, unhappily fallen away, lest all our efforts be wasted and our house be novarhm not on a rock but on shifting sand.
Under the guise of affection it tries in particular to attract children of tender age and win them to itself, although it also embraces the whole population in its scope in order finally to produce true socialists who would shape human society to the tenets of Socialism. And let them be convinced that nowhere, even on earth, can they find full happiness save with Him who, being rich, became poor for our sakes that through Novaruk poverty we might become rich, Who was poor and in labors from His youth, Who invited to Himself all that labor and are heavily burdened that He might refresh them fully in the love of His heart, and Who, lastly, without any respect for persons will require more of them to whom more has been given and “will render to everyone according to his conduct.
To Our soul’s great joy, We see in these ranks also the massed companies of young workers, who are receiving the counsel of Divine Grace with willing ears and striving with marvelous zeal to gain their comrades for Christ. You know, Venerable Brethren and Beloved Children, that the Encyclical of Our Predecessor of happy memory had in view chiefly that economic system, wherein, generally, some provide capital while others provide labor for a joint economic activity.
The civil government should not intrude into and exercise control over the family, the basic building block of society. Pope John Paul II.

The great novaru made in regard to the matter now under consideration is to take up with the notion that class is naturally hostile to class, and that the wealthy and the working men are intended by nature to live in mutual conflict.
Since a problem was being treated rdrum which no satisfactory solution” is found “unless religion and the Church have been called upon to aid,” the Pope, clearly exercising his right and correctly holding that the guardianship of religion and the stewardship over those things that are closely bound up with it had been entrusted especially to him and relying solely upon the unchangeable principles drawn from the treasury of right reason and Divine Revelation, confidently and as one having authority,  declared and proclaimed “the rights and duties within which the rich and the proletariat – those who furnish material things and those who furnish work – ought to be restricted in relation to each other,” and what the Church, heads of States and the people themselves directly concerned ought to do.
Anyone is free to join a syndicate or not, and only within these limits can this kind of syndicate be called free; for syndical dues and special assessments are exacted of absolutely all members of every specified calling or profession, whether they are workers or employers; likewise all are bound by the labor agreements made by the legally recognized syndicate. Rerym Brethren and Beloved Children, you know that Our Predecessor of happy memory strongly defended the right of property against the tenets of the Socialists of his time by showing that its abolition would result, not to the advantage of the working class, but to their extreme harm.
The Church can be credited with participating in the progress made and contributing to it. He also calls for the reconstruction of the social order based on the principles of solidarity and subsidiarity.
The conduct of such We shall never cease to censure gravely. Private societies are diverse and exist for various purposes within the civil society. No genuine cure can be furnished for this lamentable ruin of souls, which, so long as it continues, will frustrate all efforts to regenerate society, unless men return openly and sincerely to the teaching of the Gospel, to the precepts of Him Who alone has the words of everlasting life, words which will never pass away, even if Heaven and earth will pass away.
That, in the first place, the whole aspect of economic life is vastly altered, rncyklika plain to all. The question arose how the encyclical’s statements on Socialism applied to Catholics voting for or participating in Socialist parties.
Side by side with these unions there should always be associations zealously engaged in imbuing and forming their members in the teaching of religion and morality so that they in turn may be able to permeate the unions with that good spirit which should direct them gerum all their activity.
The encyclical mentions several fundamental principles to guide relationships between capital and labor.

Whoever has received from the divine bounty a large share of temporal blessings, whether they be external and material, or gifts of the mind, has received them for the purpose of using them for the perfecting of his own nature, and, at the same time, that he may employ them, as the steward of God’s providence, for the benefit of others.
Still, in order that what he novarjm happily initiated may be solidly established, that what remains to be done may be accomplished, and that even more copious and richer benefits may accrue to the family of mankind, two things are especially necessary: Now, in preventing such strife as this, and in uprooting it, the efficacy of Christian institutions is marvellous and manifold.
Those who want to be apostles among socialists ought to profess Christian truth whole and entire, openly and sincerely, and not connive at error in any way. God Himself seems to incline rather to those who suffer misfortune; regum Jesus Christ calls the poor “blessed”; Matt. Ethical considerations include the nature of private property  concerning which, within the Catholic Church, several conflicting views had developed.
Furthermore, the employer must rerrum tax his work people beyond their strength, or employ them in work unsuited to their novarumm and age. For, whatever some idly say to the contrary, no injury is done to any person when a thing is occupied that is available to all but belongs to no one; however, only that labor which a man performs in his own name and by virtue of which a new form or increase has been given to a thing grants him title to these fruits.
The teaching of Leo XIII on the form of political government, namely, that men are free to choose whatever form they please, provided that proper regard is had for the requirements of justice and of the common good, is equally applicable in due proportion, it is hardly necessary to say, to the guilds of the various industries and professions.
For, as one is wrecked upon, or comes close to, what is known as “individualism” by denying or minimizing nocarum social and public character of the right of property, so by rejecting or minimizing the private and individual character of this same right, one inevitably runs into “collectivism” or at least closely approaches its tenets. So novafum the war declared on private ownership, more and more abated, is being so restricted that now, finally, not the possession itself of the means of production is attacked but rather a kind of sovereignty over society which ownership has, contrary to all right, seized and usurped.
If Socialism, like all errors, contains some truth which, moreover, the Supreme Pontiffs have never deniedit is based nevertheless on a theory of human society peculiar to itself and irreconcilable with true Christianity. If all these relations are properly maintained, the various occupations will combine and coalesce into, as it were, novsrum single body and like members of the body mutually aid and complete one another.
Wherefore, since wageworkers are numbered among the great mass rerumm the needy, the State must include them under its special care and foresight. Destroying through forgetfulness or ignorance the social and moral character of economic life, it held that economic life must be considered and treated as altogether free from and independent of public authority, because in the market, i.
For Socialism, which could then be termed almost a single system and which maintained definite teachings reduced into one body of doctrine, has since then split chiefly into two sections, often opposing each other and even bitterly hostile, without either one however abandoning a position fundamentally contrary to Christian truth that was encyklkka of Socialism.

For what will it profit men to become expert in more wisely using their wealth, even to gaining the whole world, if thereby they suffer the loss of their souls? Unless this is kept in mind, one is swept from novrum course upon the shoals of that moral, juridical, and social modernism which We denounced in the Encyclical issued at the beginning of Our Pontificate. Every one knows, too, that no nation has ever risen out of want and poverty to a better and nobler condition save by the enormous and combined toil of all the people, both those who manage work and those who carry out directions.
Even though these laws do not conform exactly everywhere and in all respects to Leo’s recommendations, still it is undeniable that much in them savors of the Encyclical, On the Condition enncyklika Workersto which great credit must be given for whatever improvement has been achieved in the workers’ condition. Free competition, kept within definite and due limits, and still more economic rncyklika, must be effectively brought under public authority in these matters which pertain to the latter’s function.
For if the class struggle abstains from enmities and mutual hatred, it gradually changes into an honest discussion of differences founded on a desire for justice, and if this is not that blessed social peace which we all seek, it can and ought to rsrum the point of departure from which to move forward to the mutual cooperation of the Industries and Professions.
Venerable Brethren and Beloved Children, as all everywhere and especially Catholic workers who are pouring from all sides into this Holy City, are celebrating with such enthusiasm the solemn commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the Encyclical On the Condition of WorkersWe deem it fitting on this occasion to recall the great benefits this Encyclical has brought to the Catholic Church and to all human society; to defend the illustrious Master’s doctrine on the social and economic question against certain doubts and to develop it more fully as to some points; and lastly, summoning to court the contemporary economic regime and passing judgment on Socialism, to lay bare the root of the existing social confusion and at the same time point the only way to sound restoration: The supreme authority of the State ought, therefore, to let subordinate groups handle matters and concerns of lesser importance, which would otherwise dissipate its efforts greatly.
