Pope Benedict XVI’s latest Encyclical.
Benedict’s third encyclical entitled Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth) has been published. In it, the Pope tackles various social issues of modern times, including environmental problems, migration and the latest financial difficulties. He argues that without a recognition of the Christian concepts of charity and truth, it is impossible to solve the problems connected with global economics.

On his visit to
God of all the ages,
my visit to
spiritual home to Jews,
Christians and Muslims alike,
I bring before you the joys,
the hopes and the aspirations,
the trials, the suffering and the pain of all
your people throughout the world.
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
hear the cry of the afflicted,
the fearful, the bereft;
your peace upon this
upon the entire human family;
stir the hearts of all
who call upon your name,
to walk humbly in the path
of justice and compassion.
“The Lord is good to those who wait for
him, to the soul that seeks him.” (Lam. 3:25)
