Caritas in veritate is released

Caritas in veritate, Pope Benedict XVI’s latest encyclical, is released. Give it a read, I certainly plan to.

Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality. Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way. In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love. It falls prey to contingent subjective emotions and opinions, the word “love” is abused and distorted, to the point where it comes to mean the opposite.
