Mater et Magistra Conference

This week, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace is holding a conference in Rome on Blessed Pope John XXIII's encyclical "Mater et Magistra" and what it means today in an era of globalization. It is good to remember that that encyclical was the occasion for the first instance of notabel public dissent from Church teaching by a prominent layman, when William Buckley's National Review ran an article entitled "Mater, Si, Magistra, No."
