A New Social Encyclical is Coming

It is long been rumored that Pope Benedict XVI has been preparing a new social encyclical which will address the current crises. Robert Moynihan writes of it here. The Pope may have given some hints about its contents during a meeting with the clergy of Rome on February 27.

This is exciting. I have been eagerly anticipating this for some months now when I first learned of it. That was a nice plug for distributivism in the article ! Despite the chaos we are currently living through I think this is the beginning of the "fullness of time" for distributivism, and these are indeed exciting times to be alive.

We probably won't live to fully see what will develop from all this - but it is an honor and a privilege to be a part of it and try to leave something better for future generations.

I am also looking forward to this document, and am excited to read the other article's comment on distributism.

I get news updates from Yahoo on the Vatican and here's a couple of articles regarding the encyclical; one from the National Catholic Reporter and one from Acton Institute. Both seem to support the point in John's book about Justice being the central emphasis on fixing the economic ills.
