Caritas in Veritate: Resource material


Caritas in Veritate, Pope Benedict's third encyclical, is a call to see the relationship between human and environmental ecologies and to link charity and truth in the pursuit of justice, the common good, and authentic human development. In doing so, the pope points out the responsibilities and limitations of government and the private market, challenges traditional ideologies of right and left, and calls all men and women to think and act anew.

Order Caritas in Veritate from USCCB Publishing, online, or call 800-235-8722 (outside the United States or in Washington, D.C., call 202-722-8716).
