SOCIAL JUSTICE It must likewise be the special care of

governments to provide for their citizens those conditions of life without which rhe State ' itself, however sound its constitUtiOn, is in danger of collapse; and particularly to secure employment for fathers of families and for young people.

Divini Redemptoris.

But social justice cannot be said to have been satisfied so long as working men are denied a wage that will enable them to secure proper sustenance for themselVes and for their families; so long as they are dented the opportunity of acquiring a modest fortune and avoiding that pauperism which is so widespread; so long as they cannot make suitable proVisiOn through public or private insurance for old age, for periods of illness and unemployment. In a word, to repeal what has been said in Our Encyclical Quadragesimo Anna: " Then only will the economic and social order be soundly established and attain its ends, when it offers, to all and to each. all those goods which the wealth and resources of nature, technical science and the social organisation of economic affairs can give."

-Divini Redemptoris.
