The Church, Being Church in Community

Filed under: Uncategorized — keelyem @ 4:32 pm

“The Church cannot be the Church without seeking justice through participation in the political and social life of the world.”

“… The common good is “common” because it belongs to everyone in the whole community. (It) refers to the bonds of community that link persons together, bonds that depend on such specific goods as roads, schools, housing and health care . . . An individual cannot obtain fulfillment in isolation; inseparable from personal flourishing is the flourishing of the neighbor.”

Clarke E. Cochran, Roman Catholic theologian, in “Church, State, and Public Justice,” IVP 2007
