The 3rd of October, 2021 marked the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ ground breaking encyclical, Fratelli Tutti.
The document focuses on social friendship, solidarity and overcoming racism and zenophobia.
“Shadows over the closed world are spreading everywhere, leaving injured people by the roadside, cast out and discarded. The shadows plunge humanity into confusion, loneliness, and desolation. When we come upon an injured stranger on the road, we can assume one of two attitudes: we can pass by or we can stop to help. The type of person we are and the type of political, social or religious group we belong to will be defined by whether we include or exclude the injured stranger.
“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. There are no ‘others,’ no ‘them,’ there is only ‘us’.
The Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development has developed a new website which contains videos, photos, infographics, reflections, and other resources created to share the message of Fratelli Tutti.
For example, there are nine infographics, one summarising the encyclical and the others detailing the focus of each chapter.
