"YOU ARE ALL BROTHERS" (Mt 23:8)
On the 3rd of October Pope Francis signed his third encyclical letter "Fratelli tutti" during his visit to the tomb of St. Francis of Assisi.
"Fratelli Tutti" (FT) was published on October 4th, the feast of St. Francis, whose life inspired this encyclical.
In Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis stresses that fraternity and friendship in society are the means to build a better, fairer and more peaceful world. He also asks all people and institutions to say no to war and the globalisation of indifference.
In the Order of Preachers we also have the charism of fraternal life. It gives us the opportunity to reflect on today's world in the context of the celebration of the jubilee (Dies Natalis) of the 800th anniversary of the death of St. Dominic (2021).
In order to facilitate your reflection, we provide you with the following documents:

The pilgrimage of the Master of the Order to Lourdes, Toulouse and Fanjeaux
After having been elected at the General Chapter of Bièn Hoa in Vietnam on 13 July 2019, the Master of the Order made several visits to the brothers in different provinces. Gerard Francis Timoner III has described as those of his "novitiate as Master of the Order" (celebration in Fanjeaux, 6 October 2019).
