Caritas in veritate

In case ye socks missed it last month, Pope Benedict XVI issued a major encyclical bearing that title.

It translates as "Charity in truth," if like me ye took some other language than Latin to satisfy your high school graduation requirements.

Anyway, it's a pretty lengthy document, and I've been weeding thru it for a couple of weeks now.

Not so much because I feel compelled to read all of the holy father's writings, but because the topic of charity has been popping up quite a bit in this little corner of heaven lately.

Don't know why, just has.

I'm finding there's a lot more to do with it than parting with your cash.

Probably already "knew" that, but it's being reinforced.

Not a bad thing to have reinforced on a Sunday . . .
