Yes, I know you all know that Pope Benedict’s second encyclical Spe Salvi will be released on Friday (actually, probably that means late Friday night early Saturday for us here in the Antipodes), but I couldn’t let the next few hours pass without letting you know how excited we are at the very prospect of a second encyclical from the Niveous Doctor.
His choice of theme, on the virtue of hope, conincides well with our motto here at Sentire Cum Ecclesia: “Maior autem his est spes”.
We are told that “Vatican sources are indicating another papal document is still to come”. But of course. The trilogy would not be complete without an encyclical on “Faith”!
