Duties of the Catholic State

Author: 
Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani
Description: 

Cardinal Ottaviani, in a 1953 lecture, explains why the Church teaches that the State has the duty of professing the Catholic religion and that rulers are to insure that the moral principles of the True Religion inspire the social activity and the laws of the State.

This is the true Catholic doctrine trampled upon by the Vatican II document Dignitatis Humanae.
