6.22.2007 – “The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church is a valuable instrument for the formation of everyone and particularly of the laity,” said the Holy Father.
For the last month, I have been reading (among many other things) the Compendium. My impression, thus far, is that it is “ok“. I haven’t taken any real issue (yet) with its content, but I do find the first 50-75 pages rather redundant and “fluffy”. I am often saying to myself, “I wish they would just get to the point”. Nonetheless, it is a good resource.
