Quotes

This year’s theme for grant aid is "The intellectual endeavour of reviewing and contributing to Catholic Social Thought (CST) in Britain by identifying and analysing (through research, scholarship and/or policy formation) the specifically Catholic character of the mission of Catholic charities today and their links to CST"
Fr Morán said: "It taught me a model of Church which is close to the people, close to the poor and bears witness to the Gospel in everyday life; a Church which is committed to social justice" . Morán identifies closely with the teachings of Pope Francis who will receive the 500-strong Assembly at a private audience on 26 September at 12 noon...
"And so where is Christ in that? On Holy Cross Day we are reminded above all that he is with David Haines, that he is in the depths of evil and the depths of our own suffering because of the cross."
He went on to say: "Catholic Social Teaching continues to develop these fundamental principles of the priority of human dignity and the importance of the common good, across a wide spectrum of concerns."
