New encyclical tomorrow!
Pope Benedict is set to sign and publish his second encyclical tomorrow. Entitled Spe Salvi ("salvation by or through hope"; it's from the writings of St. Paul), it's said to be on Christian hope, especially in the context of modern philosophy. Word from those who have read it is that it's weighty, which is no surprise.
The letter should be at the Vatican's website around 5:00 a.m. Central time, so keep your eyes peeled.
