Catching up on a Papal Encyclical Caritas in Veritate

A belated collection of references and links on the papal encyclical Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth) as a resource if I need to follow up the topic.

Pope Benedict Gets It Right by Brian McLaren
Of particular interest to me is his strong endorsement of the key concepts behind the sustainability and fair trade/ethical buying movements. These related movements help us see that the economy is an important sphere where we can, in a sense, cast votes with every dollar we spend, literally loving our neighbors (or not) by the way we buy (or don't buy) groceries, clothing, corporate shares, and so on.
