Day #114: Gaudium Et Spes 25

“Man’s social nature makes it evident that the progress of the human person and the advance of society itself hinge on one another.”

So begins our reading today from the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World.

We are social by nature.  This plays out in good ways and also bad ways.

Here are the footnotes:
