New out from Catholic News Service, this video on the writing of the anticipated first papal encyclical from Pope Francis:
In it, we find CNS Rome bureau chief Francis X. Rocca discussing the authorship of Lumen Fidei – "The Light of Faith" - which will be released on Friday.
More on the encyclical:

Read the encyclicals by Pope Benedict XVI:
- Caritas in veritate (Charity in Truth), June 29, 2009
- Spe Salvi (Saved by Hope), November 30, 2007
- Deus Caritas Est (On Christian Love - God is Love), December 25, 2005
A question for you: Have you already read Pope Benedict XVI's papal encyclicals? How do you anticipate that Lumen Fidei will differ in tone and content from the most recent encyclicals?
