Rerum Novarum

The World Belongs to Everyone (click to view film) captures the social movement inspired by the Encyclical Rerum Novarum across the world.

The right to unite, justice for all, fair wages for every worker, solidarity with the weak and the poor – in 1891, Pope Leo XIII wrote exactly the same in his Encyclical Rerum Novarum. It would be the inspiration for many around the globe and the start of a social movement that is still going strong.
