Item description for You Did It For Me: Care Of Your Neighbor As A Spiritual Practice by Kevin E. McKenna...

Most books dealing with the social teachings of the Catholic Church simply relate those teachings and comment on them. You Did It for Me breaks the mold and shows that when you live the social gospel you live the spiritual life. This model of prayer and action also helps dispel the commonly held understanding that only by praying and escaping from the world can we live a spiritual life. McKenna explores numerous aspects of the Church's social teaching--care of creation, human life and dignity, call to community, and the dignity of work among them--and shows through example and reflection, how you too can grow spiritually in the midst of the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about You Did It For Me: Care Of Your Neighbor As A Spiritual Practice?

Catholic Social Teaching: What, Why, and How  Apr 3, 2005
Fr. McKenna, who holds a doctorate in canon law, brings to life the practical elements of Catholic social teaching as addressed in Church documents and pronounced throughout sacred scripture. Separate chapters are devoted to each of the social teaching themes defined by the U.S. Catholic bishops: respect for the life and dignity of each person; call to family, community, and participation; rights and responsibilities of the human person; option for and with the poor and vulnerable; dignity of work and the rights of workers; solidarity; and care of God's creation.

Throughout, Fr. McKenna remains focused on integration of prayer and action in Christian life. "Doing works of justice should not be separated from a vital and personal relationship with Jesus Christ," he writes. "But neither should a life of prayer be immune or separated from concrete, practical efforts at living the teachings that Jesus proclaimed." This integration of prayer and action is exemplified in the personal stories that open each chapter. In addition to these stories and examination of church documents and scripture, each chapter contains reflections and questions for discussion.
