Nau mai, Haere mai – Welcome!
Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appears to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the gospel or, in other words, of the church’s mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation.
– World Synod of Bishops, Justice in the World, 1971
