The common good is the total of all those conditions of social living – economic, political, sociological and cultural – which make it possible for women and men readily and fully to achieve the perfection of their humanity. Individual rights are always experienced within the context of the promotion of the common good.
"Catholic social thought’s vision of promoting the common good involves working on developing in society all those conditions of social living through which each and every person can be enabled to achieve their authentic human development more fully.” Edward P. Deberri, James E. Hug, Peter J. Henriot, and Michael J. Schultheis, “Catholic Social Teaching Our Best Kept Secret” (Orbis Books, Fourth Edition, 2004) 23
