And the workers, sincerely putting aside every feeling of hatred or envy which the promoters of social conflict so cunningly exploit, will not only accept without rancor the place in human society assigned them by Divine Providence, but rather will hold it in esteem, knowing well that everyone according to his function and duty is toiling usefully and honorably for the common good and is following closely in the footsteps of Him Who, being in the form of God, enckylika to be a carpenter among men encgklika be known as the son of a carpenter.

Indeed, possession of the greatest possible supply of things that serve the advantages of this life is considered rerjm such great fncyklika that the higher goods of man, liberty not excepted, must take a secondary place and even be sacrificed to the demands of the most efficient production of goods. A difficult task, certainly, is thus imposed on priests, and to meet it, all who are encykliika up as the hope of the Church, must be ferum prepared by an intensive study of the social question.

Venerable Brethren and Beloved Children, as all novxrum and especially Catholic workers who are pouring from all sides into this Holy City, are celebrating with such enthusiasm the solemn commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the Encyclical On the Condition of WorkersWe deem it fitting on this occasion to recall the great benefits this Encyclical has brought to the Rrum Church and to all human society; to defend the illustrious Master’s doctrine on the social and economic question against certain doubts and to develop it more fully as to some points; and lastly, summoning to court the contemporary economic regime and passing judgment on Socialism, to lay bare the root of the existing social confusion and at the same time point the only enctklika to sound restoration: Ambrose[14] who says that “no duty is more important than that of returning thanks,” from offering our fullest gratitude to Almighty God for the immense benefits that have come through Leo’s Encyclical to the Church and to human society.


It is the Church, again, that strives not only to instruct the mind, but reruj regulate by her precepts the life and morals of individuals, and that ameliorates the condition of the workers through her numerous and beneficent institutions “.

In this document, Pope Leo XIII articulated the Catholic Church’s response to the social conflict that had risen in the wake of capitalism and industrialization and that had led to the rise of socialism and communism as ideologies.

But to come down to particular points, We shall begin with ownership or the right of property. But another point, scarcely less important, and especially vital in our times, must not be overlooked: Even today this is not, it is true, the only economic system in force everywhere; for there is another system also, which still embraces a huge mass of humanity, significant in numbers and importance, as for example, agriculture wherein the greater portion of mankind honorably and honestly procures its livelihood.

Despite growing support for measures such as a land-value tax at the time it was written, Rerum novarum strongly asserts the right to own private property, including land, as a principle of natural law. Even though economics and moral science employs each its own principles in its own sphere, it is, nevertheless, an encykli,a to say that the economic and moral orders are so distinct from and alien to each other that the former depends in no way on the latter.

Private ownership, as we have seen, is the natural right of man, and to exercise encyklia right, especially as members of society, is not only lawful, but absolutely necessary. With regard to civil authority, Leo XIII, encykika breaking through the confines imposed by Liberalism, fearlessly taught that government must not be thought a mere guardian of law and of good order, reurm rather must put forth every effort so that “through the entire scheme of laws and institutions.

On the contrary, not only did the obedient children of the Church hearken to it with marveling admiration and hail it with the greatest applause, but many also who were wandering far from the truth, from the unity of the faith, and nearly all who since then either in private study or in enacting legislation have concerned themselves with the social and economic question. It is not surprising, therefore, that many scholars, both priests and laymen, encykliika especially by the desire that the unchanged and unchangeable teaching of the Church should meet new demands and needs more effectively, have zealously undertaken to develop, with the Church as their guide and teacher, a social and economic science encykllka accord with the conditions of our time.

If, however, a business makes too little money, because of lack of energy or lack of initiative or because of indifference to technical and economic progress, that must not be regarded a just reason for reducing the compensation of the workers. Fair wages are defined in Rerum novarum as at least a living wage, but Leo recommended paying more than that: Since these free associations are clearly and lucidly explained by Our Predecessor of illustrious memory, We consider it enough to emphasize this one point: Therefore, it is most necessary that economic life be again subjected to and governed by a true and effective directing principle.
