Why Does a Social Worker Act in a Fanatic, Cynical, or Composed Manner? On the Relationship Between Spirituality and the Moral Attitude towards What Cannot Be Changed
Selected Impulses of the Synods of Bishops on the Family (2014, 2015) and of the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia (2016) for the Helping Professions
The paper ref ects on some of the assertions of Pope Francis’s post-synodal apostolic exhor- tation Amoris laetitia. It aims to specify the exhortation’s impulses for the helping professions, pastoral care and social work. It implicitly addresses the question whether these impulses, deriving from the Christian worldview and assuming it in the interested persons, are of some relevance for secular social work, for which this worldview is neither a condition nor a general standard. For that reason the paper also of ers a brief overview of the form and signif cance of the Christian ethical paradigm in the history of the Church.
