Lecture 8: The Catholic Response – Part 1

Dr. Matthew Petrusek

January 31, 2023


Hearing and heeding the cry of the poor and those suffering injustice, in its many forms, is central to the Church’s evangelical mission. In this lecture, we now turn from analysis and critique of progressivism’s ideological influences to a constructive response that draws on the rich resources of the Catholic social thought tradition. Dr. Petrusek discusses justice, telling the truth, and moral relativism.

In this lecture series, Dr. Matthew Petrusek discusses contemporary progressive ideology, also frequently referred to as “wokeism,” and the response of the Catholic social thought tradition.
