Saints and Social Justice
A Guide to Changing the World
By Brandon Vogt

About the Book

Catholic social teaching has explosive power for changing not just individuals, but whole societies. And it's the saints who light the fuse. —Brandon Vogt

The value of human life. The call to family and community. Serving the poor. The rights of workers. Care for creation.

The church has always taught certain undeniable truths that can and should affect our society. But over the years, these teachings have been distorted, misunderstood, and forgotten.

With the help of fourteen saints, it's time we reclaim Catholic social teaching and rediscover it through the lives of those who best lived it out. Follow in the saints' footsteps, learn from their example, and become the spark of authentic social justice that sets the world on fire.

Learn from heroes like:

  1. Bl. Teresa of Calcutta
  2. St. Peter Claver
  3. St. Frances of Rome
  4. St. Roque Gonzalez
  5. Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati
  6. St. Damien of Molokai
  7. St. John Paul II
