The new encyclical letter from Pope Benedict XVI On Integral Human Development in Charity and Truth was released this past Tuesday.
I haven’t had a chance to read the whole thing yet, so I’m not going to post about it just yet. There are plenty of people doing that right now; for reactions and opinions, see the Opinionated Catholic linkfest.
There will be plenty of time to examine this encyclical later; I don’t feel any need to correspond to a frenzied news cycle.
Instead, I’m gearing up for a slow, methodical treatment of John Paul II’s document on priestly formation. I hope to have the first post prepared by the weekend.
