Pope Francis gave his latest encyclical in Assisi on the vigil of the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi on October 3rd, 2020. The Encyclical entitled ‘Fratelli Tutti’ translates to ‘On Fraternity and Social Friendship.’ From the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website “This greatly welcomed encyclical is a beautiful reflection on humanity’s path forward to a deeply desired and sought-after peace. Pope Francis addresses his renewed call to universal fraternity ‘to all people of good will, regardless of their religious convictions.’ ”
