Today in the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, we begin Chapter 3 of Part II: Economic and Social Life.
Article 63 introduces the chapter which is divided into two sections: 1) economic development, and 2) principles governing socio-economic life.
Again, the Church calls to our attention the fact that we cannot overlook the dignity of the human person. “For man is the source, the center, and the purpose of all economic and social life.”
