Fratelli Tutti 1

Fratelli Tutti - 

The first part of our Holy Father's encyclical called "Fratelli Tutti" is entitled "Dark Clouds over a Closed World."  It deals with global problems that call for global actions, also sounding the alarm against a “culture of walls” that favours the proliferation of organized crime, fuelled by fear and loneliness.

There are so many distortions in human life today.

Whether it is democracy, freedom, justice, loss of meaning of the social community and history, selfishness, indifference, unemployment, racism, poverty, disparity of rights, the culture of waste, slavery, trafficking, women subjugated and then forced to abort. 

The Encyclical aims to promote a universal aspiration toward fraternity and social friendship.
