.- Clergy and Italian government officials will be gathering this evening in Rome for a symposium to discuss Pope Benedict's new social encyclical. The meeting will focus on how "Caritas in Veritate" is "an encyclical for understanding the future."

The gathering will be held at 6 p.m. this evening in the St. Pius X auditorium in Rome. In attendance will be Archbishop Rino Fisichella, rector of the Pontifical Lateran University and president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, and Giulio Tremonti, Italian finance minister.

The meeting was put together by the Congregation of Sons of the Immaculate Conception and by the ELEA company.

Another meeting was held on Tuesday to examine the encyclical under the theme, "Beyond the ideology of crisis. Development, ethics and the market in 'Caritas in veritate'."

The congress was organized by the Magna Charta Foundation and took place in the Roman church of Santa Marta. Archbishop Giampaolo Crepaldi of Trieste, Italy, and Maurizio Sacconi, Italian minister for social affairs and employment were in attendance.
