On the occasion of the 2nd Anniversary of the encyclical letter Caritas in Veritate, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace is pleased to announce the publication of a series of multimedia resources, available online, to promote the spread and deepening of the Social Doctrine of the Church.
These initiatives have been made with the awareness that the media and new technologies should be used for the promotion of the dignity of persons and peoples, and that these media are animated by the charity at the service of truth, goodness and the natural and supernatural fraternity.
Goal of this initiative is that these popular tools offer extensive help to the community, promoting universal participation in the common search for what is right (cf. CV, 73). We hope that these resources will be fruitful for Christian education and formation of consciousness, indispensable basis for discernment and action of various agents that into the Church are called to realize the "new evangelization of society" and are invited to enrich with similar initiatives.
