What is Fratelli Tutti?

Fratelli Tutti is an encyclical which is a papal letter sent to all bishops of the Roman Catholic Church.  In Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis highlights the importance of being united as a global community, especially during the crisis of a global pandemic.

The Encyclical, which comprises eight chapters, aims to promote this universal aspiration, advocating a change in politics to reject the ‘virus’ of political individualism and build up the common good. Pope Francis explains how the Covid-19 pandemic has helped demonstrate that ‘no one can face life in isolation’ and that the time has truly come to ‘dream, then, as a single human family’ in which we are ‘brothers and sisters all’.
