Living Fratelli Tutti
Inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi, Pope Francis’ Fratelli Tutti calls for a way of life marked by the “flavor of the Gospel.” The pope’s latest encyclical focuses on contemporary social and economic problems, promoting a solidarity of sisterhood and brotherhood where none are excluded. Franciscan Action Network is excited to bring to you a series of discussions that will unpack the Holy Father’s directives to help heal divisions and guide us towards better unity.
“God is universal love, and as long as we are part of that love and share in it, we are called to universal fraternity, which is openness to all.” (Ch.3) The Holy Father implores us to strive for a world “without walls, without borders, without people rejected, without strangers.” In order to achieve this world, he says, each of us needs an open heart. (Ch. 4)
