Encyclical Letter Fratelli Tutti of the Holy Father Pope Francis – On Fraternity And Social Friendship
Pope Francis signed his new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti Oct. 3, 2020, during a visit to Assisi, when the Holy Father celebrated Mass at the tomb of his namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi. “Fratelli tutti,” the encyclical’s opening words, means “All brothers” in Italian. The phrase is taken from the writings of St. Francis, one of the major inspirations for Pope Francis’ third encyclical, on fraternity and social friendship. The full text of the encyclical was released on Oct. 4, 2020 the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi.
