Pope Benedict XVI signs his encyclical in a photo released at the Vatican
Pope Benedict XVI (L) signs his encyclical in a photo released at the Vatican November 30, 2007. Pope Benedict, in a new encyclical released on Friday, launched an attack on atheism, saying it was responsible for some of the "greatest forms of cruelty and violations of justice" in history. In the second encyclical of his papacy, Benedict urged Christians to put their hope for the future in God and not in technology, wealth or political ideologies which can often be deluding.
