Read NCR's coverage of Pope Francis' encyclical, "Fratelli Tutti, on Fraternity and Social Friendship."
Commentary: The recent encyclical by Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, offers a critical step toward the illumination of nonviolence and a just peace moral framework, breaking down the old concept of "just war."
Commentary: Our respective traditions not only teach us to be good and just, but offer us a language that can expand the horizons of what social solidarity can look like as the world grapples with crisis after crisis.
Just Catholic:Fratelli Tutti is written by a man who took the title from a man who was speaking to men, and now this document is addressed to men. Well, why not? It's not women who are ruining the world.
