Read NCR's coverage of Pope Francis' encyclical, "Fratelli Tutti, on Fraternity and Social Friendship."
One year after the release of Pope Francis' encyclical Fratelli Tutti, two cardinals discussed the pope's call for greater human fraternity during a Nov. 8-9 conference. One lamented that "solidarity is a word that is not always well received."
Commentary: Pope Francis' encyclical Fratelli Tutti was a call to 'dream together' — while not addressing the ways the church perpetuates inequality. Now, a year later, we need to put solidarity into action.
L'Osservatore Romano has published a very personal reflection on Pope Francis' encyclical Fratelli Tutti by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a self-described feminist writer from Nigeria who has become one the world's most prominent young Anglophone authors.
