There Cannot Be Two Parallel Lives

“The social doctrine of the Church... is a question of the lay Catholic's duty to be morally coherent... There cannot be two parallel lives in their existence: on the one hand, the so-called 'spiritual life' with its values and demands; and on the other, the so-called 'secular' life, that is, life in a family, at work, in social responsibilities, in the responsibilities of public life and in culture.” (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Doctrinal Note on Some Questions Regarding the Participation of Catholics in Political Life 2002, no. 6)
