JP II. As the Holy Father's life slowly ebbs away,
I remember the deep impression made on my thinking by reading his
encylicals on work and capitalism. I had tackled them as part of a
project that became my article Corporate Decisionmaking and the Moral Rights of Employees: Participatory Management and Natural Law.
I was critical of much in the enyclicals and still have reservations
about some of the prudential judgments therein, yet it was under their
influence that I began the process by which I eventually crossed the
Tiber. As far as I'm concerned, this Pope's encylicals remain the
finest expression of how our faith relates to work and the economy. []
