Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy

Gone for the weekend, so don't get this one right out of the shoot. Please.

Category: Pen and paper

Where do the Latin names of Papal Encyclicals come from?

St. Alex says, place your answer in the form of a question in the combox, say some prayers for the Holy Father's intentions, while you wait for the answer to be revealed.

Your humble prize for a correct answer is the satisfaction of knowing you are a brainiac!

What are the first few words of the Latin Papal Encyclicals?

Joe of St. Thérèse said...

What are 1 Jn 4, 8 (Deus Caritas Est) and Rom 8, 24 (Spe Salve)?

Darn it, V. beat me. Yes, I knew that too. Really.

Okay, Miss Smarty....give an example of a papal encyclical that did not have a Latin title... what was the language and who promulgated it, and why? :-D

You are certifiably a brainiac! I have that the titles come from the first two words of the encyclical.

Um, I have no idea off the top of my head. I'd have to google it!

It's "MIT BRENNENDER SORGE" from Pius XI, regards the situation in Nazi Germany, issued in 1937.
