Pope Benedict could make himself the presentation of his Encyclical on Charity "Deus Caritas Est," before it is presented in the Vatican press room, according to the Italian agency ASCA.
Again according to the agency, this could take place before or during the Congress promoted by Pontifical Coucil Cor Unum and Caritas, next January 20 and 21, which will be held on the theme of Charity.
The Congress will count on the participation of important Church personnalities, among them Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Francis George, and President of Cor Unum Archbishop Paul Joseph Cordes.
Asca mentiones that in any case, the Encyclica will be made public before January 25, and on that day, the Pauline magazine "Famigli Cristiana" will publish the entire text of the Encyclical. For the occasion, Famigli Cristiana will print a million copies and a special edition that will cost a euro extra.
