Catholic Social Teaching (CST) has been described as the Church’s ‘hidden treasure’. It is the sum of the Church’s teaching on social justice issues and is an essential part of the Catholic faith. ‘We cannot be called truly Catholic unless we hear and heed the Church’s call to serve those in need and work for justice and peace’. The 1971 Synod of Bishops said that ‘Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of world [are] … a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel’.
