Pope Benedict XVI's First Encyclical is Here!

Today was the release of Pope Benedict XVI's first encyclical - "Deus Caritas Est" (God is love).

I just learned from one of the readers of my blog that the Vatican has now made all Encyclicals copyrighted. This means I can't publish it here, but I can link to the document and read it free of charge. So please go ahead and read, but remember that it is now a copyrighted document along with all encyclicals going back to Pope John XXIII. I don't agree with this because I think that the words of our Holy Father should be free, but that's just me.
