As the U.S. Catholic Bishops' document "Sharing Catholic Social Teaching" states: "the roots of Catholic social teaching are found in the Scriptures, but its branches continue to grow. The body of social doctrine grew through the centuries as the Church encountered new social situations."

The bishops also say: "The Church's social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society. This teaching has been articulated through a tradition of papal, conciliar, and episcopal documents."

In his June 12, 2011, pastoral letter, "Parishes: Called to be Holy, Fully Engaged, Fully Alive," Bishop David Ricken said: "Imagine parishes that are the foundation from which parishioners give generously of their time, talent and treasure in the promotion of social justice and care for the poor and needy of our local communities as well as, nationally and internationally."
