Pope’s quotes: Importance of fraternity

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Today, more than ever, it is necessary to bring fraternity back to the center of our technocratic and bureaucratic society; then liberty and equality will also acquire the correct tone. Therefore, let us not light-heartedly deprive our families, through apprehension or fear, of the beauty of a full fraternal experience. And let us not lose our trust in the broad horizon that faith is able to draw from this experience, enlightened by God’s blessing.”
