What is particularly interesting in this brief news piece from the Cutting Edge News about the new Encyclical ( tentatively entitled Caritas in Veritate (Charity/Love in the Truth) is the public acknowledgement of the team helping the Pope write it:

In his encyclical, the cardinal said, “[Pope Benedict] does not want to repeat obvious truths of Catholic social teaching," but will apply Church teachings to contemporary problems. “I am thinking of globalization and other problems, like the food crisis and climate change," Cardinal Bertone said.

Il Giornale's Andrea Tornielli reported last week that the committee working with the Pope on the encyclical includes the Pope's recently-named successor as archbishop of Munich and Freising, Reinhard Marx, a specialist in Catholic social teaching; the top two officials of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Cardinal Renato Martino and Bishop Giampaolo Crepaldi; and Stefano Zamagni, a lay Italian economist.

It makes perfect sense and is very much in keeping with the Church's understanding of the laity that the Pope should call upon the competence of lay experts when considering the application of Catholic social teaching in such areas. We know that there were significant lay contributions to the drafts of some Second Vatican Council documents, for instance. But I've not seen this sort of collaboration acknowledged in advance so clearly before.
