Today we begin Part Two of the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World. In this section, we take a look at “some problems of special urgency” in our world today.
Article 46 starts us off with a brief introduction to Part Two and a listing of what issues will be addressed in the remainder of the document. Article 47 kicks off Chapter 1 on Marriage and the Family. As the Church has stated repeatedly, the health of society as a whole depends on the health of the family.
