9781612786902: Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World

Catholic social teaching has explosive power for changing not just individuals, but whole societies. And it's the saints who light the fuse. - Brandon Vogt

The value of human life. The call to family and community. Serving the poor. The rights of workers. Care for creation.

The church has always taught certain undeniable truths that can and should affect our society. But over the years, these teachings have been distorted, misunderstood, and forgotten.

With the help of fourteen saints, it's time we reclaim Catholic social teaching and rediscover it through the lives of those who best lived it out. Follow in the saints' footsteps, learn from their example, and become the spark of authentic social justice that sets the world on fire.

Learn from heroes like:

  • Bl. Teresa of Calcutta
  • St. Peter Claver
  • St. Frances of Rome
  • St. Roque Gonzalez
  • Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati
  • St. Damien of Molokai
  • St. John Paul II

About the Author:

Brandon Vogt is an award-winning Catholic author, blogger, and speaker. He's been featured by several media outlets including NPR, CBS, FoxNews, and EWTN. After converting to Catholicism in 2008, he released his first book, "The Church and New Media: Blogging Converts, Online Activists, and Bishops Who Tweet" (Our Sunday Visitor, 2011), which won first-place at the Catholic Press Association awards. He blogs at BrandonVogt.com, runs StrangeNotions.com, the central place of dialogue between Catholics and atheists, and works as Content Director for Fr. Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries. Brandon lives in Orlando, FL with his wife Kathleen and their four children.

Review:

"A triumph! One of the best presentations of the Church's social teaching. Brandon Vogt adeptly and correctly positions social justice in relation to the lives of the saints and in doing so rescues it from the ideological constraints that have for far too long made this essential teaching of the Church inaccessible to most of the faithful. Social justice is not simply a theory, but a whole way of life, revealed in all its radical and saving grace in the lives of the Church's saints." - --Very Reverend Robert E. Barron, Rector of Mundelein Seminary and founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries

In this book, Brandon Vogt situates the principles of Catholic Social Teaching within the venerable Catholic spiritual tradition by presenting these principles within the details of the actual lives of the saints. Each description becomes as vivid as a stained-glass window as it illustrates how each saint lived out the Gospel, and then it presents us with concrete lessons we can learn today. This presentation will easily lead the reader to reflection and then to action. I highly recommend Saints and Social Justice as a rich resource for your spiritual reading. -- --Father Larry Snyder, President of Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA)

Incredibly accessible: Brandon Vogt brings Catholic social teaching to life through the actions and examples of the saints. As we cannot commit to what we do not understand, this book opens minds and hearts to connect faith with personal action. An indispensable teaching resource! -- --Dr. Carolyn Woo, President and CEO of Catholic Relief Services
