ON-Lion Letter
In July, the Vatican released Pope Benedict XVI's much-anticipated social encyclical, Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth).  In it, the first social encyclical issued in nearly 20 years by the Holy See, Benedict strongly reaffirms and deepens the connection between morality and the free economy. 

The encyclical is a rich document with very deep theological and practical reflections on the duties of Christians to build a better world.  Specifically, it repudiates practices that led to a global economic crisis in which the love of truth has been abandoned in favor of a crude materialism.

An online resource page compiled by the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty in Grand Rapids, Mich., provides news and analysis on the Holy Father's document.  It includes commentary from Acton's president Rev. Robert A. Sirico, its director of research Samuel Gregg, and its Rome-office director Kishore Jayabalan.

Updated content on the Pope's work is also available on the Acton Institute PowerBlog.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports Acton.
