Update: now with text, at new URL.

Update 2: Just looking here and there, I note
I reaffirm the beauty and the importance of a priestly life lived in celibacy as a sign expressing total and exclusive devotion to Christ, to the Church and to the Kingdom of God, and I therefore confirm that it remains obligatory in the Latin tradition. [24]

it is especially incumbent upon those who, by virtue of their social or political position, must make decisions regarding fundamental values, such as respect for human life, its defence from conception to natural death, the family built upon marriage between a man and a woman, the freedom to educate one's children and the promotion of the common good in all its forms [footnote omitted]. These values are not negotiable. [83]

and (some might say on the other hand)
We cannot remain passive before certain processes of globalization which not infrequently increase the gap between the rich and the poor worldwide. We must denounce those who squander the earth's riches, provoking inequalities that cry out to heaven (cf. Jas 5:4). [90]

Once again, too bad these documents lack internal links to sections, or even internal anchors so we could fashion our own links.

Update 3: At Open Book, Here ya go and New post.

Update 4: Short comments at Musings of an Pertinacious Papist.
