Finding great hope in "Fratelli Tutti"
St. Francis of Assisi challenged injustices of war, culture and religion in the time of the Crusades and counseled his brothers and sisters to live together in nonviolence, acceptance and fraternity. 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.

There is much to consider in the pope's third encyclical letter, published in October 2020. We offer reflections from Sister Laura Nettles, Sister Sarah Hennessey and Affiliate Emily Crook as invitation to "Fratelli Tutti" contemplation and conversation.
