Come 'n' get it!

The day has finally arrived - the Pope's Apostolic Exhortation from the Synod on the Eucharist is here. I've already started to read it, but that pesky thing called work is keeping me from finishing it until (hopefully) later today.

Fr. Fox has done a nice, albeit very brief, overview of it for us. One thing I noticed in my brief scan through this morning was that the Pope re-affirmed the positive value (as opposed to the negative obligation, if you will) of priestly celibacy. That he tied those two issues together may give us a hint that this document has many layers. We will have to see...

Update: Pertinacious Papist has his review here. I'll be listing the reviews I see as I come across them.
