Hat tip to Dan Burke over at Religion News Service for his comments and assembly of reactions to the new papal encyclical.
He writes: "Reaction to Pope Benedict XVI's long-awaited social encyclical 'Caritas in Veritate,' is starting to pour in. In it, Benedict calls for a reformed United Nations with policing power and a new financial world order to enforce business ethics. ... Already, Catholic progressives are embracing the document."
