“ Fratelli Tutti: On Fraternity and Social Friendship ” is the name of the new encyclical that Pope Francis will sign on October 3 this year, in Assisi, Italy.
The signing will take place after the mass celebrated in the Franciscan basilica, which, according to Matteo Bruni, director of the Vatican press, will be without faithful on this occasion, due to the current health crisis and at the request of Pope Francis.
For the faithful, this new encyclical letter means strength and courage to begin to live again in fraternity and union, despite all the suffering and difficulties that the pandemic has caused in families all over the world.
With this, the Pope has written a total of three encyclicals since his election on March 3, 13. The first was ” Lumen Fidei ” (The Light of Faith), signed on July 5, 2013. Then he wrote ” Laudato Si’ ” (Praised be you), on May 24, 2015, and finally the last, Fratelli Tutti ( All Brothers), which will be signed in October.
