Four Key Principles of Catholic Social TeachingSandie Cornish
Four Key Principles Human dignity. The common good. Subsidiarity.The Pontifical Council for Justice & Peace’s Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, identifies four principles of Catholic Social Teaching that are valid always and everywhere: Human dignity. The common good. Subsidiarity. Solidarity. © Sandie Cornish , Australian Jesuits, October 2009.
Human Dignity Every human being is made in the image and likeness of God and has an inalienable and transcendent human dignity which gives rise to human rights. People are always more important than things. People are never a means or an instrument to be used for the benefit of another. Each person is equal in dignity and rights, and every human community, every race and culture is equal in dignity and rights. We are one human family because we are all children of the one God. © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

Human Dignity … “Respect for the human person entails respect for the rights that flow from his dignity as a creature. These rights are prior to society and must be recognized by it. They are the basis of the moral legitimacy of every authority; by flouting them, or refusing to recognize them in its positive legislation, a society undermines its own moral legitimacy ...” Catechism of the Catholic Church, n 1930 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

The Common Good We are all really responsible for each other and must work for social conditions which ensure that every person and every group in society is able to meet their needs and realize their full potential. Every group in society must take into account the rights and aspirations of other groups, and of the well being of the whole human family. God intended the goods of creation for the use of all, and so everyone has a right to access the goods of creation to meet their needs. © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

The Common Good … “To love someone is to desire that person’s good and to take effective steps to secure it. Besides the good of the individual, there is a good that is linked to living in society: the common good. It is the good of ‘all of us’, made up of individuals, families and intermediate groups who together constitute society ... To take a stand for the common good is on the one hand to be solicitous for, and on the other hand to avail oneself of, that complex of institutions that give structure to the life of society, juridically, civilly, politically and culturally, making it the polis, or ‘city’.” Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n 7 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.
The Common Good … “The dignity of the human person requires the pursuit of the common good. Everyone should be concerned to create and support institutions that improve the conditions of human life.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, n 1926 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

Subsidiarity Responsibility should be kept as close as possible to the grassroots. The people or groups most directly affected by a decision or policy should have a key decision making role. More encompassing groups should only intervene to support smaller, more local groups in case of need, and where this is necessary in order to coordinate their activities with those of other groups in order to promote the common good. © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

Subsidiarity … “Subsidiarity is first and foremost a form of assistance to the human person via the autonomy of intermediate bodies. Such assistance is offered when individuals or groups are unable to accomplish something on their own, and it is always to achieve their emancipation, because it fosters freedom and participation through assumption of responsibility. Subsidiarity respects personal dignity by recognising in the person a subject who is always capable of giving something to others... It is able to take account both of the manifold articulation of plans – and therefore the plurality of subjects – as well as the coordination of those plans.” Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n 57 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.
Subsidiarity … “... the principle of subsidiarity must be respected: a community of a higher order should not interfere in the internal life of a community of a lower order, depriving the later of its functions, but rather should support it in case of need and help to coordinate its activity with the activities of the rest of society, always with a view to the common good.” John Paul II, Centesimus Annus, n 48 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

Our salvation is bound up with that of each other.Solidarity Human beings are social by nature. We can not survive without others and can only grow and achieve our potential in relationship with others. Our salvation is bound up with that of each other. Solidarity is a firm and persevering determination to commit oneself to the common good. © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.

Solidarity … “Solidarity helps us to see the ‘other’ - whether a person, people, or nation - not just as some kind of instrument, with a work capacity and physical strength to be exploited at low cost and then discarded when no longer useful, but as our neighbour, a helper (cf Gn 2:18-20), to be a sharer, on a par with ourselves, in the banquet of life to which all are equally invited by God.” John Paul II, Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, n 39 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.
Solidarity … “Today we can say that economic life must be understood as a multi-layered phenomenon: in every one of these layers, to varying degrees and in ways specifically suited to each, the aspect of fraternal reciprocity must be present… Solidarity is first and foremost a sense of responsibility on the part of everyone with regard to everyone and it cannot therefore be merely delegated to the State.” Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, n 38 © Sandie Cornish, Australian Jesuits, October 2009.
