Pope Leo XIII quotes (showing 1-6 of 6)

“Nothing is more useful than to look upon the world as it really is, and at the same time to seek elsewhere...for the solace to its troubles.”
Pope Leo XIII, On The Condition of the Working classes
“Once the demands of necessity and propriety have been met, the rest that one owns belongs to the poor.”
Pope Leo XIII
“Mas, além da injustiça do seu sistema, vêem-se bem todas as suas funestas consequências, a perturbação em todas as classes da sociedade, uma odiosa e insuportável servidão para todos os cidadãos, porta aberta a todas as invejas, a todos os descontentamentos, a todas as discórdias; o talento e a habilidade privados dos seus estímulos, e, como consequência necessária, as riquezas estancadas na sua fonte; enfim, em lugar dessa igualdade tão sonhada, a igualdade na nudez, na indigência e na miséria. Por tudo o que Nós acabamos de dizer, se compreende que a teoria socialista da propriedade colectiva deve absolutamente repudiar-se como prejudicial àqueles membros a que se quer socorrer, contrária aos direitos naturais dos indivíduos, como desnaturando as funções do Estado e perturbando a tranquilidade pública. Fique, pois, bem assente que o primeiro fundamento a estabelecer por todos aqueles que querem sinceramente o bem do povo é a inviolabilidade da propriedade particular.”
Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum: On The Condition Of Working Classes
“Inadequacy of his own strength, learned from experience, impels and urges a man to enlist the help of others.”
Pope Leo XIII
“To refuse any bond of union between man and civil society, on the one hand, and God the Creator and consequently the supreme Law-giver, on the other, is plainly repugnant to the nature, not only of man, but of all created things; for, of necessity, all effects must in some proper way be connected with their cause; and it belongs to the perfection of every nature to contain itself within that sphere and grade which the order of nature has assigned to it, namely, that the lower should be subject and obedient to the higher.”
Pope Leo XIII, Libertas: On the Nature of Human Liberty
“No human law can abolish the natural and original right of marriage, nor in any way limit the chief and principal purpose of marriage ordained by God’s authority from the beginning: “Increase and multiply.”
Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum: Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII on Capital and Labor
