Continuing the Social Justice Series of adult faith formation for the Church in the Modern World, this week’s topic is poverty.

The readings represent just a small portion of the Church’s teachings on the issue. While the Church has taught about helping those in need since Christ himself said the words in Sacred Scripture, these readings come from the past 130 years or so. Together they touch on a wide variety of the related issues.

Here are the readings:
