This chapter explores some of the paradoxes of Commission of the Conference of Religious in Ireland (CORI) Justice's circumstances and attempts to identify the formula of its successful ascent in the Community and Voluntary Pillar (CVP) of social partnership. It looks at the origins and in particular the distinctive outlook and analysis of CORI Justice. In particular there is a brief examination of its interpretation of Catholic social teaching. Catholic social teaching is infused with a pragmatic social reformism that goes well beyond the dominant approach of Irish Catholicism or the historic corpus of Catholic social teaching that informed social policy in continental Europe from the 1890s. The chapter reveals how CORI Justice proved adept not only in relation to the macro environment but also in the conduct of its tactics vis-a- vis allies in the CVP.
