It is indispensable, therefore, that in the training of youth, education should be complete and without interruption, namely, that in the minds of the young religious values should be cultivated and the moral conscience refined in a manner to keep pace with the continuous and ever more abundant assimilation of scientific and technical knowledge. The Principle of Subsidiarity These societies and organizations must be considered the indispensable means to safeguard the dignity of the human person and freedom while leaving intact a sense of responsibility.
This is the warning of God Himself: And since public officials hold office only for a specified period of time their authority, far from withering, rather takes on a new vigor in a measure proportionate to the development of human society.
The first is this: Finally, man’s personal dignity involves his right to take an active part in public life, and to make his own contribution to the common welfare of his fellow citizens.
They insist that they be always regarded as men with a share in every sector of human society: A man who has fallen into error does not cease to be a man. Hence encicpica, right reason, and the recognition of man’s dignity cry out insistently for encicllica cessation to the arms race.
The sentiment of universal fatherhood which the Lord has placed in Our heart makes Us feel profound sadness in considering the phenomenon of political refugees: It is also essential that, despite constantly changing conditions, legislators never disregard the moral law or constitutional provision, nor act at variance with the exigencies of the common good.
For “to safeguard the inviolable rights of the human person, and to facilitate the performance pacfm his duties, is the principal duty of every public authority. Paul teaches, “there is no power but from God”. Today, therefore, workers all over the world refuse to be treated as if they were irrational objects without freedom, to be used at the arbitrary disposition of others.
These men, necessarily few in number, but deserving recognition for their contributions in the field of human relations, We publicly praise and at the same time We earnestly invite them to persevere in their work with ever greater zeal. What wisdom has designed them all! Responsory at Matins on the Friday after Easter.

What has so far been achieved is insufficient compared with what needs to be done; all men must realize that. In Our opinion the explanation lies in a certain cleavage between faith and practice. Truth calls for the elimination of every trace of racial discrimination, and the consequent recognition of the inviolable principle that all States are by nature equal in dignity.
There is general agreement—or at least there should be—that relations between States, as between individuals, must be regulated not by armed force, but in accordance with the principles of terris reason: There is also a growing economic interdependence between States. God Himself warns us of this: And We are comforted by the hope that their number will increase, especially among those who believe, for it is an imperative of duty; it is a requirement of Love.
And lastly one must bear in mind that, even when it regulates the relations between States, authority must be exercised for the promotion of the common good. Each of them accordingly is vested with the right to existence, to self-development, to the means fitting to its attainment, and to be the one primarily responsible for this self-development. No State can be denied this right, for it is a postulate of the natural law itself, as also of international law.
It is Our opinion that the explanation is to be found in an inconsistency in their minds between religious belief and their action in the temporal sphere. For the common good, since it is intimately bound up with human nature, can never exist fully and completely unless the human person is taken into account at all times.
If we turn our attention to the economic sphere it is clear that man has a right by the natural law not only to an opportunity to work, but also to go about his work without coercion. Women have the right to working conditions in accordance with their requirements and their duties as wives and mothers. But it is not so; the laws which govern men are quite different.
Our Predecessors have constantly maintained, and We join them in reasserting, that nations are reciprocally subjects of rights and duties. Each is also legitimately entitled to its good name and to the respect which is its due.

fnciclica The common good requires that civil authorities maintain a careful balance between coordinating and protecting the rights of the citizens, on the one hand, and promoting them, on the other.
Far from bringing about the reconciliation of contending parties, it reduces men and political parties to the necessity of laboriously redoing the work of the past, building on the ruins that disharmony has left in its wake. On the contrary, all should help to develop in others a sense of responsibility, a spirit of enterprise, and an earnest desire to be the enciiclica to promote their own advancement in every field.
Hence, to quote Pope Pius XII, “The absolute order of living beings, and the very purpose of man—an autonomous being, the subject of duties and inviolable rights, and the origin and purpose of human society—have a direct bearing upon the State as a necessary community pace with authority. Mater et magistra Pacem in terris. They began by claiming their rights principally in the economic and social spheres, and then proceeded enciclida lay claim to their political rights as well.
At the same time We are encouraged to hope that many more men, Christians especially, will join their cause, spurred on terrs love and the realization of their duty.
Yes; out of nothing He made all things, and filled them with the fullness of His own wisdom and goodness. Moreover, just as it is necessary in each state that relations which the public authority has with its citizens, families and intermediate associations be controlled and regulated by the principle of subsidiarity, it is equally necessary terrks the relationships which exist between the world-wide public authority and the public authority of individual nations be governed by the same principle.
He has the natural right to share in the benefits of culture, and hence to receive a good general education, and a technical or professional training consistent with the degree of educational development in his own country.

And finally, each country’s social progress, order, security and peace are necessarily linked with the social progress, order, security and peace of every other country.
The idea that men, eciclica the fact of their appointment to public office, are compelled to lay aside their own humanity, is quite inconceivable Their very attainment to this high-ranking office was due to their exceptional gifts and intellectual qualities, which earned for them their reputation as outstanding representatives of the body politic Our concern here has been with twrris which are causing men extreme anxiety at the present time; problems which are intimately bound up with the progress of human society.

Pzcem very order of things rnciclica, demands that during this sacred season we pray earnestly to Him who by His bitter passion and death enciclics away men’s sins, which are the fountainhead of discord, misery and inequality; to Him who shed His blood to reconcile the human race to the heavenly Father, and bestowed the gifts of peace.
Yet peace is but an empty word, if it does not rest upon that order which Our hope prevailed upon Us to set forth in outline in this encyclical. Thus any government which refused to recognize human rights or acted in violation of them, would not only fail in its duty; its decrees would be wholly lacking in binding force.
It is necessary also that governments make efforts to see that insurance systems are made available to the citizens, so that, in case of misfortune or increased family responsibilities, no person will be without the necessary means to maintain a decent standard of living.
