Comments: Archbishop who means business

Thanks so much for Christopher Lamb's article on +Welby. What a delightful piece of news in this statement "I have learnt much from Catholic spirituality and from the glorious and – if I may say so to The Tablet – far too well-hidden structure of Catholic Social Teaching, which surprisingly few Catholics know about, let alone others.”
Welby's interest in Catholic Social teaching is intriguing--not because it reflects an interest in something "catholic" per se, as a "code word" as it were, but because it is a clue to a mind that has a capacity for the complexity of social issues in relation to Christian faith, and a an interest in considering social policy alternatives that take both faith and the social order seriously.
