Roger Bergman, director of Creighton’s Justice and Peace Studies Program, comes back to the show to discuss Pope John XXIII’s important encyclical Pacem in Terris. Published in 1963, Pacem in Terris is one of the few encyclicals to gain a wide audience beyond the Catholic faithful. It was also the last major publication of this remarkable pope, who died in the same year, 1963.
This program is part of our ongoing series on the Church’s social encyclicals. The other programs can be access by clicking on the category “Catholic Social Teaching.”
Listeners who wish to read the encyclical can find it at the Vatican web site.
