How much do you really own?
Catholic teaching says that what's mine is yours when it comes to ownership of private property.
Catholic social teaching used to be called the church’s “best kept secret.” But the secret is getting out in a surprising way. Prominent Catholic Congressman and Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has invoked it repeatedly in support of his federal budget proposal. Not everyone agreed with his catechism lesson, and the controversy that ensued probably gave Catholic Social Teaching more public attention than any papal encyclical ever did.
