en - Human rights at the heart of the christian spirituality

Those who live out an authentic spirituality of human rights pose a radical challenge to the individualism, exploitation, and abuse of authority which are rampant in our world. Following the guideline put forward by Jesus (Mt 18:15-16), those who are defending people’s human rights aim to have constructive dialogue with politicians, governments, and Church leaders, and also to influence public opinion in society and in the Church.

How can we live up to this ideal?
