The paper Recovering Common Goods, written by the Irish Jesuit Patrick Riordan (Dublin, Veritas 2017) won the fifth edition of the International Award "Economy and Society" promoted by the Centesimus Annus Foundation - Pro Pontifice, for the section "Publications in Social Doctrine", together with Integral Ecology, La recepción católica del reto de la sostenibilidad. 1891 (Rerum Novarum) - 2015 (Laudato Sì), by Jaime Tatay (Madrid, Bibioteca de Autores Cristianos, BAC 2018).   The Prize, amounting to 20 thousand euros, is awarded every two years to those works that stand out for their original contribution to the deepening and application of the Social Doctrine of the Church and which are of recognized doctrinal soundness, as well as comprehensible to the general public.

Recovering Common Goods

Professor of Political Philosophy at Campion Hall, University of Oxford, Fr. Riordan holds a Master's degree from Die Hochschule für Philosophie, Munich, and a Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Innsbruck.

In Recovering Common Goods, Patrick Riordan explores how Catholic social teaching and the principle of the common good can be successfully applied in the public sphere, whether in relation to education, economics, democracy, or civil rights. From global conflicts to national politics and industrial disputes, we are bombarded with news about the divisions between people, the issues that separate them, and the violence of their language and actions toward one another. However, by working together to support the common good, we help both ourselves and our neighbours achieve their goals and, in turn, thrive both as people and as a community.

The Ceremony

The Award was presented at a ceremony that took place on Thursday, December 16 at the Palazzo Cancelleria in Rome. The ceremony was presided over by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State of the Vatican; the introductory speech was made by Anna Maria Tarantola, President of the Centesimus Annus Foundation - pro Pontifice. Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich and Freising, presented the awards to the winners. The reflection on the theme of this year's Award was made by Cardinal Silvano Maria Tomasi, Special Delegate for the Sovereign Order of Malta.
