The USCCB has posted a press release and the text of a letter signed by Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the presidents of the episcopal conferences of other G-8 nations, sent to the heads of government in advance of the G-8 annual summit. The letter is quite forceful in calling for a more just and equitable distribution of the earth's resources. I think it is fair to say that the text of the letter was not drafted by our friends at either the Acton Institute or the INstitute for Religion & Democracy. Is this more of the Pope Francis effect?
