Lecture 9: The Catholic Response – Part II

Dr. Matthew Petrusek

February 3, 2023


In the Catholic social thought tradition, all human beings, without exception, are made morally equal in the image and likeness of God, and all human beings, without exception, are mired in sin—chief among them the sin of pride. Lecture 9 explains how the Catholic social thought tradition can respond to progressivism’s dangerously utopian ideal of social perfection and its faulty understanding of human dignity.

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.
