The Encyclicals of Lumen Fidei, The Light of Faith, and Caritas in Veritate, Charity in Truth, were both issued on June 29, but are separated by four years. Each of the Encyclicals is centered around Christian faith that is built upon the principles of love and truth. With these principles as a guide, common good is within reach, and an overall fruitful life is achievable.
