Two professors at The Catholic University of America (CUA) are releasing a new book which draws together the rich teachings of the Catholic Church as they relate to business, according to a Facebook event planned for the books launch.
Andrew Abela, dean of the School of Business and Economics, and Joseph Capizzi, associate professor of moral theology, teamed up to edit, A Catechism for Business: Tough Ethical Questions and Insights from Catholic Teaching.
At the beginning of 2013, CUA announced the creation of a new School of Business and Economics based on Catholic social doctrine and the natural law with Abela at its head, as was reported.
The social teaching of the Church is based on reason and the natural law, and therefore can be helpful to everyone, not just Catholics, said Abela in a recent interview at National Review Online with Cardinal Newman Society Board Member Kathryn Lopez.
The new book draws together Catholic teaching and documents. Capizzi told Lopez:
We hope that people will use our Catechism to familiarize themselves with Church teaching and then look to the teaching for guidance in their work. The social teaching of the Church provides a series of principles, which then have to be applied in concrete situations. Readers should familiarize themselves with the relevant teachings and pray and meditate on them, to seek Gods guidance for their particular situation.
