Catholic Social Teachings

Common GoodAs humans we should continuously be striving for greatness and look for good of others. Our minds and hearts together shows us good from bad by comparing ourselves to God who is perfect. There are rules in our world that exist without physically existing. For example, we are all to wait our turn in line at the cash at a grocery store. This is Common good, meaning that we know it is the right thing to do without actually having a rule to tell us. However common good may be percieved differently depending on the person who informs us. Someone with not much knowledge may think that it is proper to cut people off while driving only because you are trying to get ahead resluting in a decision that is only benefical to yourself. This person may teach others that it is okay to do the same however it is not. Whoever informs us, forms us, menaing whoever tells us things, changes the way we think. Common good is essentially a "rule book" that does not physically exist but we should all follow. We as humans should always look for a solution to any problem that not only benefits ones self, but also bennefits others round you. Everyone likes their feelings to be thought of and cared for, so we should look for solutions that are beneficial to all.

Human DignityWe as humans are all created in the image of God. We are all equal and are all the same and are worthy of respect. People are created equally by God, and so we should treat others with equality as we oursleves would wnat to be treated. In order for us to gain repsect from others, we must respect all humans. Every person has the right to have their primary needs met. Respecting humans for who they are is important. Humans are all indivuduallly important and different but should not be respected for their abilities and what they offer to us, instead humans should be respected for who we truly are. Since humans are all to be treated equally, everyone has the right to participate in society. Lastly, as humans we are to recognize the needs of the poor, the isck, and the disabled and are to strive to help. If we are human, we are all equal, and we should treat eachother with the respect and with the same equality as we would want to be treated.

SolidarityWe are one large human family no matter what our differences may be. We should care for others before ouselves because we are our brothers and sisters keepers. We as humans are set out to persuit justice and peace. God the creator should come first and then after comes others and lastly comes ourselves. Imagine a world where everyone only care for themsleves and do whatever they wish when they wish. Our world would be chaos. We would live in a narsasitic world with much violance and crimal acts occuring very often due to the hunger of pleasing oneself befor eothers and only thinking about the benefits to oneself. We can not let this take over our world. It is not peaceful nor justice to put ourselves before others. Yes, people form their own groups based on their common interests and common goals however, in reality, we are all a big group who are all created in the image of God and should all feel accepted and important to a group or community.
