Vatican City, Mar 14, 2008 / 01:10 am (CNA).- Pope Benedict XVI's third encyclical will discuss Catholic social teaching, touching on issues as varied as poverty, peace, wars, international cooperation, energy sources, and globalization.
The encyclical will be titled "Caritas in Veritate," "Love In Truth," La Repubblica reports.
"Caritas in Veritate" will be Pope Benedict's third encyclical. His first encyclical, "Deus Caritas Est," examined the virtue of love while the second, "Spe Salvi," focused upon the virtue of hope.
The four-chapter encyclical will no longer be published on May 1 as previously planned, but will be delayed so that translations, especially the Chinese translation, may be completed.
