Catholic Social Thought and Distributive Justice

"They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need." - Acts 2:42, 44-45

“When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours.  More than performing works of mercy we are paying a debt of justice.”  (St Gregory the Great) Catechism of the Catholic Church
