In the Footsteps of Jesus: Catholic Social Teaching at Work Today (DVD)

How does God call you to make a difference in the world? That is the central question of a this 28-minute video, In the Footsteps of Jesus: Catholic Social Teaching at Work Today.

Ideal as an introduction to Catholic social teaching, the video can be used as a resource for sacramental preparation, small study groups, and youth and adult religious education. It also includes a study guide.

The video is designed to challenge all Catholics—teenagers and senior citizens, college students and RCIA candidates, pastors and parish councils, schoolchildren and families—to focus on this simple question: "How is God calling you to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and put his teachings into practice in the world?"

The video was developed in cooperation with the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the USCCB Department of Social Development and World Peace, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Catholic Charities, and the National Council of Catholic Women.

Key themes at the heart of Catholic social teaching include Life and Dignity of the Human Person; Call to Family, Community and Participation; Rights and Responsibilities; Option for the Poor and Vulnerable; the Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers; Solidarity; and Care for God's Creation.
