Part Three

IN BRIEF

1943

Society ensures social justice by providing the conditions

that allow associations and individuals to obtain their

due.

1944

Respect for the human person considers the other “an­

other self.” It presupposes respect for the fundamental

rights that flow from the dignity intrinsic of the

person.

1945

The equality of men concerns their dignity as persons

and the rights that flow from it.

1946

The differences among persons belong to God’s plan,

who wills that we should need one another. These

differences should encourage charity.

1947

The equal dignity of human persons requires the effort

to reduce excessive social and economic inequalities.

It gives urgency to the elimination of sinful

inequalities.

1948

Solidarity is an eminently Christian virtue. It practices

the sharing of spiritual goods even more than material

ones.
