U.S. bishops urge cooperative effort to renew economy

Economy should place working people and their families at the centre, says Bishop Blaire

The B.C. Catholic has a Catholic News Agency story about the U.S. bishops' point man on domestic justice issues, Bishop Stephen E. Blaire, who is calling on an economic renewal in America:
“Everyone and every institution has a role to play in building a more just economy,” said Bishop Stephen E. Blaire of Stockton, Calif., who chairs the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
He recalled the words of Blessed Pope John Paul II that both “society and the state must ensure wage levels adequate for the maintenance of the worker and his family.”
