I recently picked up a copy of BXVI’s Caritas in Veritate in Latin. Paragraph 5 states that “societas” today “universaliter conglobatur”. Literally, that means that society today is everywhere turned into a ball—it’s all balled up. But I take it as a way of referring to the phenomon of “globalization”.
Speaking of which, I’d be happy to publically honor and applaud the reader who can define “globalization” succinctly and intelligibly.
