“The Church, as the divine guardian of revelation and the moral order, must proclaim the truth against all forms of injustices. Just as we condemn irresponsible government action, we must condemn business whenever business exploits man for material gain. And whenever the institutional church itself fails to live up to its preachings, the institutional church itself stands condemned.”

Not only must they speak out against injustice, but they must see to it, by practical and persevering action, and by witness of their lives, that justice is done to every man”.
