Reflections on Caritas in Veritate

These meditations were created for Pope Benedict XVI's State Visit to the United Kingdom from 16th to 19th September, 2010, visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Birmingham.  This is a series of five meditiations on Pope Emeritus Benedict's third encyclical, Caritas in Veritate.

Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth) was issued on 7th July 2009, and deals with the question of social development in a global context, in the light of the Gospel.

The five prayer sessions, each dealing with a key theme of the encyclical, are available here and can be downloaded from our SoundCloud account.
