We all say and admit that God is love. God establishes justice equally among human being. If so why is there nevertheless injustice among men ?

All men have the same dignity, but not all of them meet with the same living conditions. In cases where injustice is man-made, it contradicts the gospel. In cases where men have been endowed by God with different gifts and talents, God is asking us to rely on one another: in charity one should make up for what other lacks. There is a kind of inequality among men that does not come from God but rather originates in societal conditions, especially in the unjust distribution of raw materials, land and capital worldwide. God expects us to remove from the world everything that is plainly contrary to the Gospel and disintegrates human dignity. Yet there is another sort of inequality among men that is quite in keeping with God’s will: inequality in talents, initial conditions and opportunities. These are an indication that being human means being therefore others in charity so as to share and to promote life. (Youcat-331)
