|Catholic Basics: Christian Morality|
Edited By: Thomas P. Walters
A Pastoral Ministry Series
To emphasize the "thisworldly" aspects of the reign of God and of Christian living does not at all suggest that in our daily lives we must become social activists. Many of us can identify important moral obligations arising from our relationships as parents, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends, workers, etc. Some of us are healthy; some of us are ill and homebound. Some of us have positions of enormous influence in public life; many of us do not. So the ways in which we actively participate in Gods work of fashioning a reign of justice, love, and peace are likely to vary greatly from person to person.
We must all care about our neighbor and, in the ways that are open to us, we must do what we can to contribute to Gods work. We must tend the garden we are in.
From chapter 2
