Catholic papers on the reception of Sacramentum Caritatis

The Catholic Herald leader this week is sharply critical of the lack of the failure of the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales to give due publicity to Sacramentum Caritatis. Headed "A bewildering silence", the piece invites us to imagine the Church as an orchestra with Pope Benedict XVI as conductor:
Last Tuesday, the Pope took to the podium to lead us in a hymn of priase to the Eucharist through his Apostolic Exhortation, Sacramentum Caritatis. When he raised the baton, the Herald began to play at full volume, devoting pages to the new document and hailing it as a masterpiece. But we were bewildered when we looked up and saw that great sections of the orchestra were sitting in silence.
The Universe seems a little hazy on the difference between various types of papal document. However, a short article on page 3 manages to make the same point as the Catholic Herald leader, albeit probably without intending to. The headline reads simply "LMS welcomes encyclical."
