On December 12, 2006 Istituto Acton organized the sixth conference of the eight-part series dedicated to the papal social encyclical, Centesimus Annus. The international conference held at the Pontifical Gregorian University focused on the human, economic and moral-theological conditions for creating a more charitable society. The panel experts provided ample reflection on the teachings and witness of the Catholic Church in this realm, with a particular reflection on Benedict’s first encyclical, Deus Caritas Est and increased dependence on government-provided welfare programs in America and Europe. The audience of academic professors, seminarians, journalists and business persons asked challenging questions about how to implement and advocate the Church’s teachings in their own cultures and societies.
