Fr. Barron and The Popes Encyclical

Father Robert Barron of Word On Fire gives his thoughts and opinions of Pope Benedict XVI's latest encyclical, Caritas in Veritate. He has plenty of positive things to say, but also shares a few of his concerns~especially where the Holy Father speaks about a possible type of "world government".
As always Fr. Barron gives his clear and honest commentary on the topic at hand. You can view more of Fr. Barron's videos by clicking the Word on Fire link above.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
