New Encyclical Due July 7

Per Zenit:

Benedict XVI's new encyclical, titled "Caritas in Veritate," will be released Tuesday, the Vatican announced.The Vatican press office confirmed today that the Pope's first social encyclical, which is expected to offer an analysis of the current economic crisis, will be presented at a press conference in the late morning July 7. The text will then be released to the public at midday, local time.

We'll have a full breakdown when it comes out. And more frequent updating that what's been seen lately. I promise.

I'm actually pretty stoked to read this document. While I have certain issues with Populorum Progressio, the Magsterium's corpus on social justice is some of the deepest and most profound stuff you can read these days. Especially given the habits of the heterodox to use social justice as a smokescreen for their heresies.
