Bruce Duncan CSsR will explain Why Pope Leo’s social manifesto remains critical today, noting also the influence of England’s Cardinal Manning on the document, and its impact in Australia.
‘Faced with our gig economy, low or stagnant wages, housing stress, astonishing wealth in the hands of a few, and neoliberal economics driving growing inequality, Pope Leo XIII’s 1891 encyclical, known in Latin at Rerum Novarum, is acutely relevant today.’
