Whenever a homily about justice and charity is preached, whenever a union leader or politician inspired by papal pronouncements about just wages stands up to help poorly paid workers, whenever a diocesan newspaper publishes an article advocating creative ways to battle injustices of any sort?these are the ways Catholic social teachings are realized in the everyday world. "Catholic social teaching" is usually applied to approximately a dozen documents from Vatican sources?popes, councils, and synods of bishops. These "social" documents deal primarily with issues of life in modern society, including economic and political realities facing all people. A more expansive understanding of "Catholic social teaching" would extend the conventional definition of the phrase in three ways: first, to consider how Church leaders and theologians addressed social realities in eras prior to the advent of modern social teaching; second, to include developments on the local level, including statements by individual bishops in their dioceses and regional groupings of bishops such as national episcopal conferences; third, to include various types of "applied Catholic social teaching." In American Catholic Social Teaching, a CD-ROM and book, Massaro and Shannon focus on the second definition listed above?efforts at the local level?and address the role of the laity and the concrete application of social teachings on the part of the laity. The documents and resources in American Catholic Social Teaching present the core of the social teaching of the American Catholic Church. Volume I: The Documents, is a CD-ROM containing twenty-three documents of social teaching from bishops of the Catholic Church in the United States written between 1829 and 1999. Volume II: Analysis of the Tradition, is a book containing twenty essays on the same social issues addressed by the bishops' statements in Volume I. Volume I: The Documents contains the following documents on CD-ROM: "Pastoral Letter: John Carroll, 28 May 1792," "Pastoral Letter: First Provincial Council of Baltimore, 17 October 1829," "Pastoral Letter: Second Plenary Council of Baltimore, 21 October 1866," "Pastoral Letter: Third Plenary Council of Baltimore, 7 December 1884," "Program of Social Reconstruction, National Catholic War Council, 12 February 1919," "Present Crisis, Bishops' Conference, 25 April 1933," "Statement on Church and Social Order, National Catholic Welfare Conference, 7 February 1940," "God's Law: The Measure of Man's Conduct, National Catholic Welfare Conference, 18 November 1951," "Discrimination and Christian Conscience, National Catholic Welfare Conference, 14 November 1958," "Human Life in Our Day, National Conference of Catholic Bishops,15 November 1968," "This Land Is Home to Me, Catholic Bishops of Appalachia, 1975," "The Economy: Human Dimensions, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 20 November 1975," "Brothers and Sisters to Us, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 14 November 1979," "The Challenge of Peace: God's Promise and Our Response, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1983," "'What We Have Seen and Heard,' U.S. Black Catholic Bishops, 1984," "Economic Justice for All, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1986," "One in Christ Jesus: Toward a Pastoral Response to the Concerns of Women for Church and Society, National Conference of Catholic Bishops' Ad Hoc Committee, 1992," "Putting Children and Families First, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1992," "Moral Principles and Policy Priorities on Welfare Reform, United States Catholic Conference, 19 March 1995," "A Decade After Economic Justice for All: Continuing Principles, Changing Context, New Challenges, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1996," "An Economy of Paradoxes, Labor Day Statement by Bishop William Skylsatad, 1996," "Sharing Catholic Social Teaching: Challenges and Directions, USCC Task Force on Catholic Social Teaching and Catholic Education, 1998," "Faithful Citizenship: Civic Responsibility for a New Millennium, United States Catholic Conference Administrative Board, 1999."

الصفحة 24 - Like the vase, in which roses have once been distilled — You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will. But the scent of the roses will hang round it still.
الصفحة 179 - The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God's creation. If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers must be respected — the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to organize and join unions, to private property, and to economic initiative. Solidarity We are our brothers' and sisters
الصفحة 88 - The body of the faithful as a whole, anointed as they are by the Holy One (cf. Jn. 2:20, 27), cannot err in matters of belief. Thanks to a supernatural sense of the faith which characterizes the People as a whole, it manifests this unerring quality when, "from the bishops down to the last member of the laity," it shows universal agreement in matters of faith and morals.
الصفحة 167 - Just as it is gravely wrong to take from individuals what they can accomplish by their own initiative and industry and give it to the community, so also it is an injustice and at the same time a grave evil and disturbance of right order to assign to a greater and higher association what lesser and subordinate organizations can do.
الصفحة 80 - We do not intend that our treatment of each of these issues carry the same moral authority as our statement of universal moral principles and formal Church teaching. Indeed, we stress here at the beginning that not every statement in this letter has the same moral authority.
الصفحة 199 - By intervening directly and depriving society of its responsibility, the Social Assistance State leads to a loss of human energies and an inordinate increase of public agencies, which are dominated more by bureaucratic ways of thinking than by concern for serving their clients, and which are accompanied by an enormous increase in spending.
الصفحة 167 - It is a fundamental principle of social philosophy, fixed and unchangeable, that one should not withdraw from individuals and commit to the community what they can accomplish by their own enterprise and industry. So, too, it is an injustice and at the same time a grave evil and a disturbance of right order to transfer to the larger and higher collectivity functions which can be performed and provided for by lesser and subordinate bodies.
الصفحة 26 - To priest, to Bishop, or to Pope (I am willing to consider the hypothesis) who should attempt to rule in matters civil and political, to influence the citizen beyond the range of their own orbit of jurisdiction that are the things of God...
الصفحة 159 - capitalism" is meant a system in which freedom in the economic sector is not circumscribed within a strong juridical framework which places it at the service of human freedom in its totality, and which sees it as a particular aspect of that freedom, the core of which is ethical and religious, then the reply is certainly negative.
