“Charity in Truth”
In his third encyclical letter, Pope Benedict XVI discusses the relationship between morality and the economy. Building on Pope Paul VI’s Populorum Progressio, Pope Benedict reminds us that living by Christ’s truth in love is at the heart of the Church’s social teaching. He affirms the necessity of the common good and the social teachings that help protect it. At the same time he warns us to make love our highest priority rather than investing ourselves too much in earthly perfection.
