so the parish email got its third announcement from USCCB Publishing, advertising the new publication of the Pope's first encyclical, "God is Love." What's not mentioned is that a neat .pdf version of the text is available on their website! Come on guys --- you're offering the text free! Be proud of that! (Of course, the blogosphere beat 'em --- Clayton Emmer had a .pdf text out the week the encyclical came out).
Not that it wouldn't be nice to have a few print copies floating around -- heck, I might get some just to show my appreciation of the USCCB's magnanimity on this occasion! At $6.96 a pop it's not a bad deal. But then, I'd much prefer the beautiful edition put out by Cantagalli .... wait! I'll be able to! In a week or so! :-)
