The Pope's First Encyclical Is Out!

Finally, it is here: Pope Benedict's first encyclical, Deus caritas est. It is interesting how La Stampa gives the document a reading from a standpoint that is political. Perhaps, it was the section on social justice that motivated such a reading. The following statement, for example can provoke... Sign in to see full entry.

Ten Things That Enriched Me This Year: Thoughts On My 44th Birthday
