Benevolent churches and benevolent citizens?

In August 1996, the Hungarian Catholoc Church published an ancyclical for a more fair and fraternal world. Since then, it can be suspected that the church wants to take over the traditional role of the political left. The big question of teh future is, like in the past, whether the conservative, ideological-political role of teh church would be replaced by the need for a "social church" and the "service of society".
