It’s expected that on June 29th the Pope will
publish his latest encyclical, Caritas in Veritate (Love in Truth).
Last week he said: “As you know, my encyclical on the
vast theme of economics and labor will soon be published. It will highlight
what, for us Christians, are the objectives to be pursued and the values to be
promoted and tirelessly defended, with the purpose of realising a truly free
and human coexistence in solidarity.”
Pope Benedict’s two previous encyclicals are Deus Caritas
Est (God is Love, 2005) and Spe Salvi (Saved by Hope, 2007).
It’s time to get excited because the Pope’s words are always germane.
