Default New papal encyclical on poverty

Pope Francis is reportedly working on an encyclical to be called "Blessed are the Poor". The topic would seem to be the vow/promise of poverty, but perhaps also the lure of wealth and materialism for all Christians.

Ron, are you still of the opinion this encyclical will be one of the triggers of the apostasy to come ? I'm not sure as it will not be a doctrinal encyclical.

If the next encyclical is on the vow of poverty, then it might not trigger the great apostasy. I would expect such a trigger to confront the members of the Church with their current unfaithfulness to Church teaching.
