Reclaiming Catholic Social Teaching brings Pope Leo XIII's social teachings to the 21st century in an attempt to show where society has gone wrong and what we can do to fix it. And he has many good and useful points to make on that subject. With chapters dedicated to personal, family, and societal issues, the book is both concise and thorough covering quite a bit in only eight chapters. It also manages to avoid jargon and remain accessible to a beginner to the subject of Catholic social teaching. Perfect for anyone interested in the topic or those looking to begin at study of Leo XIII's teachings. Highly recommended. ( )

This book is dedicated to my grandparents: John and Mary Esolen and Peter and Angeline Conserette. They came from Italy without any money but with a will to work hard and raise virtuous children. They lived in material poverty, but they possessed the natural moral virtues of temperance, wisdom, justice, and the one without which the others are but words—courage. They held the ramparts for their families against dispair and the follies of the day. All that I owe to my parents I also owe to them; and may God let perpetual light shine upon them.
First words
Is it possible, I have sometimes wondered for a well-intentioned and intelligent person to get everything wrong, in the matter upon which he sets his mind most energetically?
