The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society. Every person has a fundamental right to life, and a right to those things required for human decency. Marriage and the family are the central social institutions that must be supported and strengthened. Basic rights of workers must be respected, as work is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation.

Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities — to one another, to our families, and to the larger society. We are one human family, and loving our neighbor has global dimensions. We promote peace in a world surrounded by violence and conflict. We are instructed to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first. And care for the earth is a requirement of our faith.
