The social encyclicals

Here’s a handy compendium of the social encyclicals from Leo XIII’s Rerum novarum to Benedict XVI’s Caritas in veritate. The older I get the more I see that these old popes know a thing or two about the proper ends of society. I used to be a “Mater si, magistra no” Buckleyite; now I just try to be a Catholic.
