We are all one human family, and we are responsible for the well-being of each other. This responsibility reaches across national, racial, ethnic, economic, and ideological differences. Indifference to the pain and suffering of others has no place in our interdependent society. We are all responsible for all.
“Learning to practice the virtue of solidarity means that ‘loving our neighbor’ has global dimensions in an interdependent world” (Sharing Catholic Social Teaching: Challenges and Directions, USCCB, 1998).
