The September/October issue of Lay Witness magazine discusses Catholic Social Teaching–in particular, the balance between the things of this world and the things of eternity. The print edition features articles by some of your favorite authors.
David Fagerberg gives an entertaining and enlightening summary of Catholic Social Teaching from the perspective of beloved Catholic writer G.K. Chesterton. No matter the merit of our apostolic works, Fr. Dwight Longenecker reminds us, our efforts must be directed toward attaining holiness–not simply being “good.” Longtime friend of CUF Dr. John Crosby, in commemoration of the closing of the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, looks to Gaudium et spes as a blueprint for our attitude toward temporal affairs. Rounding out the issue, James Gaston comments on a topic relevant to all Christians: work. Noting the great dignity man has in relation to work, Gaston gives the readers of Lay Witness encouragement that the greatest benefit of our labor is the spiritual benefit it imparts.
