Poverty Requires a Faith Response: What Can We Do?
If you have wondered what responses we can make to poverty, come hear world renowned economist, Dr. Jeffery Sachs, discuss what we can do.
If you have wondered what responses we can make to poverty, come hear world renowned economist, Dr. Jeffery Sachs discuss what we can do, as part of the Association of Pittsburgh Priests Speaker Series.
Dr. Jeffery Sachs (Harvard & Columbia), teaches us how the Social Gospel of the Church can bring justice and peace in our world. Dr. Sachs has concretely responded to the dire poverty in our world by guiding policies and efforts in developing countries toward sustainable development.
Although Jewish in faith, Popes John Paull II and Francis have sought him out for input into encyclicals, most recently for "Laudato Si: On Care for our Common Home. Sachs calls it ..."magnificent, breathtaking,...compellingly holistic. It inspires in its profundity." He is similarly enthusiastic about the Church's social teaching: "I love the leadership the Church shows in goodwill to humanity. Pope Francis has said repeatedly that his encyclicals are a call to all of humanity....they touch me very deeply."
