The Role of Property

“ A global ethic of solidarity and cooperation in the service of a future (will be ) shaped by interdependence and shared responsibility in the whole human family.”  Fratelli Tutti (Para 127).

In a nutshell, it is the thesis of the exhortation – and the Pope’s belief that “all of us are born with the same dignity”. Privilege cannot be use to suppress the rights of the less privileged. What we have is a gift in common to all. Possessions, cannot be considered the cardinal right of individuals. As a community, we are obliged to ensure that everyone lives in dignity with opportunity for integral development. To be perfect is not an easy choice!
