Today, as in the past, the Church has as its primary tasks growing in love for God, which is shown through the means of grace, and being able to love our neighbors on the basis of what the Gospel tells us. The Church should publicly express its commitment to God and practice doing good to our neighbors. The Church must denounce the social sins of the contemporary world, which continues to exploit the poor, women, children, immigrants, etc. It must not remain silent. It is also the task of the Church to welcome all people—because all people are worthy of respect by the mere fact that they are created by God in God’s image.
