+  Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World

  • Description: "Societies live and die by their social teaching – history has shown it repeatedly. How they value human life, protect the family and rights of workers, assist the poor, and preserve and care for creation all ultimately make or break their legacy. Though the Catholic Church has consistently held social-justice guidelines, those truths have been largely distorted, misinterpreted, or forgotten. And the world today is paying a high price for that. The lives of 14 saints -- and how their example relates to modern social justice -- are examined in-depth by award-winning author, blogger and speaker, Brandon Vogt, in Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World (Our Sunday Visitor, 2014). In keeping with the call to extend mercy and care to the poor, Vogt will donate 100 percent of the book’s royalties to Catholic Charities, USA."
