Petri believes that if a pope was to deny the admissibility in itself of death penalty, it would constitute a "rupture" with the previous teachings of the Catholic Church. Now, in a humanity overwhelmed by inequity of every kind, Pope Francis calls us, in “Fratelli Tutti,” to again follow our patron saint’s lead. Fratelli Tutti is the third of Pope Francis’ encyclicals—letters written by the pope that address the public on a wide variety of issues. I Love Jesus. [23][13] Most of the encyclical contains what the Pope has already said, and can be considered as a systematic, comprehensive rearrangement of the work Francis has produced during his seven-year papacy. A central message of Fratelli Tutti is the fundamental familial unity of all humankind. The limits and borders of individual states cannot stand in the way of this", and adds: "Each country also belongs to the foreigner inasmuch as a territory's goods must not be denied to a needy person coming from elsewhere. It also condemns believers who continue to "support varieties of narrow and violent nationalism, xenophobia and contempt, and even the mistreatment of those who are different".[26]. "[26] He also urges that the "right to private property" be accompanied by the "prior principle" of "subordination of all private property to the universal destination of the earth's goods, and thus the right of all to their use".[19]. No one is useless and no one is expendable” (see Par 215). item 3 Pope Francis-Fratelli Tutti BOOK NEW 3 - Pope Francis-Fratelli Tutti BOOK NEW. Pope Francis’ encyclical Fratelli Tutti was born during the COVID-19 pandemic. [15], John L. Allen Jr. of Crux compares Fratelli tutti to Pius XI's 1931 encyclical Quadragesimo anno based on similarities he sees between the political and economic contexts in which both encyclicals were released and the solutions they provided. The politics we need, Francis also underscores, is a politics centred on human dignity and not subjected to finance because “the marketplace, by itself, cannot resolve every problem”: the “havoc” wreaked by financial speculation has demonstrated this (see Par 168). They must be remembered always, anew, so as not be become anaesthetized and to keep the flame of collective conscience alive. Caro Papa Francesco, This letter is a follow-up to a letter sent to you via the Canadian Nuncio, His Excellency, Most Rev. [13], Our Sunday Visitor describes the encyclical as "a papal plea to care for our fellow man", in the same way the previous encyclical, Laudato si', is "a papal plea to care for our common home". In this chapter Francis exhorts us to go “‘outside’ the self” in order to find “a fuller existence in another” (Par 88), opening ourselves up to the other according to the dynamism of charity which makes us tend toward “universal fulfilment” (Par 95). In the encyclical, Francis writes about how the sense of inclusion in global kinship is disappearing, and how the quest for justice and peace is being replaced by a "globalized indifference". However, the Italian phrase has the common connotation of "all of humanity" and is, by default, inclusive. The theme of the fifth chapter is “A better kind of politics”, which represents one of the most valuable forms of charity because it is placed at the service of the common good (see Par 180) and recognizes the importance of people, understood as an open category, available for discussion and dialogue (see Par 160). Another hope present in the Encyclical regards the reform of the UN: in the face of the predominance of the economic dimension, a task of the United Nations will be to give substance to the concept of a “family of nations” working for the common good, the eradication of poverty and the protection of human rights. “Fratelli Tutti” is carefully constructed in a way that reveals a distinctive aspect of Pope Francis’ papal ministry. To many shadows, however, the Encyclical responds with a luminous example, a herald of hope: the Good Samaritan. Specifically, the Pope points to several “indispensable steps, especially in response to those who are fleeing grave humanitarian crises”: to increase and simplify the granting of visas; to open humanitarian corridors; to assure lodging, security and essential services; to offer opportunities for employment and training; to favour family reunification; to protect minors; to guarantee religious freedom. [15][20] Besides Francis of Assisi, he also states that he has been inspired by numerous non-Catholics, including Martin Luther King, Desmond Tutu, and Mahatma Gandhi. Fraternity and Social Friendship Part of the seventh chapter, then, focuses on war: “a constant threat”, that represents “the negation of all rights”, “a failure of politics and of humanity”, and “a stinging defeat before the forces of evil”. The document was signed on 3 October 2020, on the occasion of Pope Francis's visit to the tomb of his namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, and was published the following day on the saint's feast day. The Encyclical also places specific emphasis on the issue of foreign debt: subject to the principal that it must be paid, it is hoped nonetheless that this does not compromise the growth and subsistence of the poorest countries (see Par 126). [...] Let us dream, then, as a single human family, as fellow travellers sharing the same flesh, as children of the same earth which is our common home, each of us bringing the richness of his or her beliefs and convictions, each of us with his or her own voice, brothers and sisters all. [34], In the same section, Pope Francis also criticises those who believe that worshipping God is enough and are untrue to what their faith demands of them. What are the great ideals but also the tangible ways to advance for those who wish to build a more just and fraternal world in their ordinary relationships, in social life, politics and institutions? This is mainly the question that Fratelli tutti is intended to answer: the Pope describes it as a “Social Encyclical” (6) which borrows the title of the “Admonitions” of Saint Francis of Assisi, who used these words to “address his brothers and sisters and proposed to them a way of life marked by the flavour of the Gospel” (Par 1). Pope Francis' new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, is earning praise from the leadership of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), who say the letter is a confirmation of the types of bridge-build ministries that sisters engage in throughout the world. In the background – the Encyclical recalls – the spiritual stature of a person’s life is measured by love, which always “takes first place” and leads us to seek better for the life of the other, far from all selfishness (Par 92-93). [1], The Pope also calls for the establishment of the concept of "full citizenship" and the rejection of the discriminatory use of the expression "minorities". Francis expresses just as clearly a position with regard to the death penalty: it is inadmissible and must be abolished worldwide. Fraternity necessarily calls for something greater, which in turn enhances freedom and equality",[21][36] and adds that liberty and equality are nothing without fraternity.

The name of Pope Francis' new encyclical is "Fratelli Tutti," which translated means "All brothers." "[19], The encyclical is inspired by the Abu Dhabi declaration. [46], José Horacio Gómez, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, says the encyclical proposes a challenge "to overcome the individualism in our culture and to serve our neighbors in love". Phyllis Zagano also criticized the title, saying: "Too much is at stake. Too many women are being insulted. [15] Among other things, abortion, euthanasia, neglect of the elderly, discrimination against women, and slavery are included as part of this throwaway culture;[35] the word "abortion" is not present in the encyclical, but its condemnation is alluded.

Pope calls for politics to rediscover its vocation to work for common good St Francis of Assisi used to say: "All brothers and sisters". Pope Francis signed the encyclical Fratelli Tutti on October 3 after celebrating Mass at the tomb of St Francis of Assisi, and the Vatican released the more than 40,000-word text the next day. From the sixth chapter, “Dialogue and friendship in society”, further emerges the concept of life as the “art of encounter” with everyone, even with the world’s peripheries and with original peoples, because “each of us can learn something from others. In the eighth and final chapter, the Pontiff focuses on “Religions at the service of fraternity in our world” and emphasizes that terrorism is not due to religion but to erroneous interpretations of religious texts, as well as “policies linked to hunger, poverty, injustice, oppression” (Par 282-283). Francis attempts to reorient the right to property as a responsibility for the care of the whole planet: "All this brings out the positive meaning of the right to property: I care for and cultivate something that I possess, in such a way that it can contribute to the good of all. [19], Francis warns against selfishness in the economy, and against financial speculation which "continues to wreak havoc." [40], According to Eduardo Campos Lima of Crux, many Brazilians were surprised and delighted by the use of Pope Francis of a quote from the song Samba da Benção of Vinicius de Moraes in the encyclical.
