"Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality”
Caritas in Veritate is the fruit of the Church's reflection on the challenges facing the world today, and the moral framework in which these challenges can be addressed.
The encyclical addresses contemporary themes: globalization, the economic crisis, the limits of free-market economics, the environment, poverty and development, social inequalities, the role of technology, human migration, consumerism, population control, religious freedom, religious and secularist fundamentalism, human rights - and their limits.
