The 1987 Encyclical of Pope John Paul II, Solicitudo Rei Socialis is a most remarkable statement on the problem of development, particularly in relation to the Third World. While following the tradition of the social teaching of the Catholic Church, as outlined in previous Encyclicals from the famous Rerum Novarum of Pope Leo XIII onwards, and while commemorating in a particular way the publication in 1967 of Pope Paul VI's Encyclical Populorum Progressio, this document is impressively original in its definition of the development problem and in its suggestions towards a solution.
