St. Dominic and St. Franciscus
FRATELLI TUTTI
"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:
