Equality and Inequality as Willed by God for Men

In a time in which false notion of equality is constantly being put before us, it is important to pause and reflect on the reason precisely why God has not created us equal.

Pope Pius XII reminds us that: "Social inequalities, even those related to birth, are inevitable: Benign nature and God's blessing to humanity illuminate and protect all cradles, looking on them with love, but do not make them equal."

As the Pope rightly points out, God loves all cradles but does not make them equal. He loves all the newborn, but His blessing does not make them equal. Obviously, these inequalities wanted by the Creator are harmonious and proportionate, for God orders all things well.

Further on, he continues: "On the other hand, to a mind instructed and educated in a Christian way these disparities can only be considered a disposition willed by God with the same wisdom as the inequalities within the family. Hence, they are destined to bring men more closely together on the present life's journey toward the Kingdom of Heaven, with some helping others in the way a father helps the mother and children".  Allocution to the Roman Patriciate and Nobility - 5 January 1942.

Furthermore, Pope Pius X explicitly stated several major points in this regard that are important for us to keep in mind:

1. Human society, as God established it, is composed of unequal elements, just as the members of the human body are unequal. To make them all equal would be impossible, and would result in the destruction of society itself.

2. The equality of the various members of society is only in that all men originate from God the Creator; that they were redeemed by Jesus Christ, and that they must be judged by God and rewarded or punished in strict accordance with their merits and demerits.

3. Wherefore, it results that, in human society, it is God's will that there should be princes and vassals, proprietors and proletarians, rich and poor, learned and ignorant, nobles and plebeians, all of whom, united in the bond of love, should help one another to achieve their final end in Heaven, and their material and moral well-being here on earth.  Encyclical - Quod Apostolici Muneris.
