See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

What would St. Peter say?

Huh?
.
In encouraging the early Church, the first Pope wrote concerning St. Paul's writings; "Paul, our beloved brother, wrote you... in the spirit of wisdom that is his. There are certain passages in them hard to understand..." [2 Peter 2: 15-16]
.
I have to wonder what he'd say about Benedict XVI's latest encyclical Caritas in veritate. Way over my head, beyond my pay grade, and all of that. I suppose it will foster new apostolates and new studies however - which means books, the lecture circuit, seminars - profit for those promoting what they think the Pope's message was all about. "What Does The Pope Really Say?"
.
Kind of like TOB. Did you realize there are numerous blogs dedicated to TOB? Nothin' wrong with that. (Except maybe it's a cult? LOL! I still want an illustrated version...)
.
Ka-ching.
