Impact of Gaudium et Spes on the Church in Southern Africa

Cardinal Wilfred Napier, O.F.M., Archbishop of Durbin, takes a practical approach to Gaudium et Spes by evaluating its impact on the Church in Southern Africa and the ways in which it obligates us to be involved in politics for the common good.

The Center for Social Concerns 2015 Catholic Social Tradition Conference, “Joy and Hope: Fiftieth Anniversary of Gaudium et Spes,” sought to explore the thematic social justice issues that have been addressed by modern Catholic social thought, especially those within the pastoral constitution such as human dignity, political structures, economic development, and internationalization.
