I feel the same way. Have you read any of the Holy Father's works?

I am currently reading 'On the Way to Jesus Christ'-- a series of meditations that the Holy Father wrote while he was Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and it is beautifully written and presents a new perspective on who Jesus Christ really is.

I want to read more of his works and can hardly wait to hear what he has to say in his new encyclical.
