Father Sirico on Caritas in Veritate

Writing in the Wall Street Journal:
Caritas in Veritate is a reminder that we cannot understand ourselves as a human community if we do not understand ourselves as something more than the sum or our material parts; if we do not understand our capacity for sin; and if we do not understand the principle of communion rooted in the gratuitousness of God's grace. Simply put, to this pope's mind, there is no just or moral system without just and moral people.
The persistent claim that this Priest is an ideologue is usually disproved by a simple reading of what he actually writes.
