A Return to the Communal Aspects of Christianity

To bring back the communal aspects of Christianity -- this is part of Peter's great mission. "A heresy comes about," he said, "because people have neglected one aspect of the truth or distorted it..." We have neglected the communal aspect of Christianity; we have even denied that property was proper to man. We have allowed property to accumulate in the hands of the few, and so a denial of private property has come about, ostensibly for the sake of the common good. St. Thomas says a certain amount of goods is necessary to lead a good life. Dorothy Day
