Day #147: Gaudium Et Spes 66

Today in the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, we finish the section on economic development in Chapter 3.

Yesterday we looked at the need for economic growth (article 64) and how it should not be controlled by too few (article 65).  Today the Council discussed the great importance of avoiding economic inequality and any type of unjust discrimination towards workers.

Here is the footnote:

5. In reference to agricultural problems cf. especially John XXIII, encyclical letter Mater et Magistra: AAS 53 (1961).
