From Fr. Z.'s readers--I am shocked that so many Catholics do not understand the Church's teaching as seen in over a hundred years of encyclicals, including some by St. John Paul II and the Pope Emeritus.....I sincerely hope these numbers change. Of course, I voted on "I plan to read it all, because I believe the Pope's views....etc.
This could have been written by the Pope Emeritus....mostly. That is the tone and most of the content--from his notes.
This is serious that Catholics do not read or take this encyclical seriously
