A Mother's Work is Never Done

The latest issue of HUMANUM, the online research journal of the Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family (Washington, DC), which I edit, is on the theme of Mother's Work, in a series about Home and Family. The point of the journal is to review the latest thinking about topics that concern the most vulnerable members of our society, such as children. The present issue follows others on Absent Fathers, on Same-Sex Unions, on Reproductive Technology, and Divorce. It contains both articles and book reviews, and does not cost anything to read or download.

Social Teaching

Please be aware of a new website, based in the UK and devoted to Catholic Social Teaching. Introduced by Archbishop Vincent Nichols, contains among other things a simple guide to Caritas in Veritate.

Meanwhile another new site,, applies Catholic Social Teaching specifically to business management and leadership.  The Resources section contains a link to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace document on the Vocation of the Business Leader, co-published with the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought in Minnesota.
