“In God’s family, no one ought to go without the necessities of life”

on Thursday, 01 June 2006. Posted in Encyclical letters, Pope Benedict XVI

This quote from Pope Benedict XVI, taken from his encyclical letter Deus Caritas Est (God is love), will be the theme of our International Congress this year in Rougemont, September 2-4, 2006. Since we are all children of the same God, all human beings are our brothers and sisters, and we should care when many of them suffer from hunger, and even starve to death, in a world where there is enough food to feed all people.

In the same encyclical, the Pope adds that "the aim of a just social order is to guarantee to each person, according to the principle of subsidiarity, his share of the community's goods." This would be achieved so well by the Social Credit dividend to all, which would respect the dignity of the human person created in the image of God. (See article pages 2-3.)
