The Urging of Christ's Love: The Saints and The Social Teaching of the Catholic
Description: In “The Urging of Christ’s Love,” Omar Gutiérrez tells the story of eleven people who lived their lives in pursuit of Christ. Each Saint, Blessed, or Servant of God is considered in the context of Catholic Social Teaching. The end of each chapter features a prayer and quotes from the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, which help link the lessons we can learn from the saint’s life to Church teaching. By discovering new saints and rediscovering old ones, this book presents Catholic Social Teaching in an accessible and important way.
