Claude Ryan: Canadian public figure who played major role in promoting Catholic social teaching

Catholic social teaching has been called the Catholic Church’s “best kept secret.”  A rich body of modern papal social teaching begins with the papacy of Leo XIII (1878-1903).  In Anglo-Saxon circles, Catholic social teaching  generally refers to the body of teaching dealing with issues of social justice, politics and the economy.  In European contexts, Catholic social teaching is understood  to refer to the wider body of teaching dealing with questions of family life, sexuality, and bioethics, as well as issues of social justice.
