Fordham University Press

This chapter includes a faith-justice autobiography and biographical sketches of witnesses. It sets the basic theme of this book. It talks about how to move students from naïveté to solidarity and what makes the crucial difference. It was a personal encounter and subsequent relationship with the poor that marginalized and stimulated a hunger and thirst for justice, and therefore a commitment to Catholic social teaching (CST) in the author of this book. The author believes that he has learned something from his own experience, that CST has much to learn about pedagogy and that Ignatian pedagogy is a sure foundation for this enterprise.

Keywords:   naïveté, solidarity, Catholic philosopher, Catholic social teaching, pedagogy
