The U.S. Bishops list seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching. This podcast considers the theme of the "Life and Dignity of the Human Person."
Each human being is made in the image and likeness of God. Therefore each person has a God-given dignity that must be nurtured and protected. Fr. Ragan Schriver, special assistant to the president at Catholic Charities USA, talks about the pastoral foundations of the theme of human dignity. Brian Corbin, executive vice president of Member Services at CCUSA, offers insight into the practical implications of believing that each person is made in the image and likeness of God.
