New encyclical slated for June 29 release

June 29 has been set as the release date for Pope Benedict XVI’s third encyclical, Caritas in Veritate (Love in Truth). Don’t hold your breath, though, as this encyclical has been delayed several times in the past. (I’m sure Borders and Barnes & Noble will have to be loose in their plans to hold release parties, as they did with the Harry Potter books.)

But seriously, an article in Britian’s The Catholic Herald today explains that “Benedict calls for new world economic order“. The pope stated, “As you know, my encyclical on the vast theme of economics and labour 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.”
