SAN LUIS OBISPO – On 8 February 2023, the Social Justice Ministry of the parish of Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, 751 Palm Street will be having its next meeting from 5:30pm until 7pm in the Serra Room.
The dignity of work and the rights of workers is one of the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching. The late Pope Benedict XVI said:
“I would like to remind everyone, especially governments engaged in boosting the world’s economic and social assets, that the primary capital to be safeguarded and valued is man, the human person in his or her integrity. Man is the source, the focus and the aim of all economic and social life. Poverty results from a violation of the dignity of human work, either because work opportunities are limited (through unemployment or underemployment), or because a low value is put on work and the rights that flow from it, especially the right to a just wage and to the personal security of the worker and his or her family” (Encyclical Letter Caritas in Veritate (29 June 2009), n. 25).
