Two Jesuit priests have been named the winners of the 2021 edition of the Centesimus Annus Foundation’s prize for writing on Catholic social teaching.
Father Patrick Riordan and Father Jaime Tatay will each receive the “Economy and Society” award from the Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice Foundation in a ceremony in Rome presided over by Cardinal Pietro Parolin on Dec. 16.
The 20,000 euro award is granted every two years to works that stand out for their original contribution to the deepening and application of the Social Doctrine of the Church, according to the foundation.
Riordan received the prize in recognition for his 2017 book “Recovering Common Goods”. The book is focused on the application of the principle of the common good in the public sphere.
