The primary foundation of a Christian spirituality of justice is faith in God who reveals himself as Father and calls everyone to become sisters and brothers. In Jesus, God reveals power as communication (cf. Phil 2:5-11) and through the Holy Spirit, teaches the attitudes and practices of sharing in all kinds of relationships. The process of learning the spirituality of justice begins with the commitment to others and their circumstances, done with a constructive and merciful attitude. This is fully expressed by means of dialogue, spiritual and scientific, which opens the way to discernment and the practice of justice.
“Redemptorists can never be deaf to the cry of the poor and the oppressed, but have the duty to search for ways of helping them, so that they themselves will be able to overcome the evils that oppress them. This essential element of the Gospel must never be lacking in the proclamation of the word of God.” (Stat 09)
“Members should try to establish works which have for their aim human and social progress, and this above all in regions which are still in a state of development.” (Stat 021)
