This chapter sketches the beginning stages of modern Catholic social thought (CST) in Europe between the 19th century and World War II. It then discusses the flourishing of Christian Democratic parties after the end of World War II, their crucial contribution to the launching of the process of European integration and to the “economic miracles” of many European nations, and their subsequent decline. The concluding section will look at some of the issues that Catholics must face if they want to uphold their testimony of the Christian message today.

Keywords:   Catholic social thought, sustainable prosperity, common good, World War II, European integration
