Catholic social teaching: new links

Thomas Storck at The Distributist Review explains why Fr. Robert Sirico is a heretic, and how grossly he misrepresents his favorite encyclical.

The Protestant Gerry Neal gives an appreciative introduction, explaining that “social justice” has come to mean something much different from what the Church originally meant.

Alte quotes the pope.  Apparently, the number of fundamental social principles is up to four now.  As I’ve said before, I think the basics actually proceed from one principle, but it’s a principle we dare not name.
