Apostolic nuncio to US to hold webinar on Fratelli Tutti

CNA Staff, Dec 4, 2020 / 06:35 pm MT (CNA).- Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, will present a webinar on the pope’s recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti.

Entitled “Social Implications of Fratelli Tutti: A Call to Fraternal Love,” the webinar will be held 8 p.m. EST on December 7. It will be livestreamed on Facebook, and registration is currently open.

The webinar is the second event under the Common Good in the Public Square (CGPS) initiative run by Global Responsibility, an international nonprofit that says it is “inspired by humanist principles to act in our societies and to encourage responsible citizenship worldwide.”

The initiative seeks to encourage individual and group action on important social issues, based on Catholic Social Teaching.

“We intend to further spread the message of Fratelli Tutti across the country, as we believe that the guidance provided by Pope Francis is of paramount importance,” said  Felipe Flores Herrera, U.S. Coordinator for Global Responsibility. “These are polarizing and challenging times, and we want our faith to inform our civic engagement as lay Catholics.”

Fratelli Tutti was released by Pope Francis in October. It emphasizes the primacy of love, in both social and political contexts, and urges people of good will to promote fraternity through dialogue, renewing society by putting love for others ahead of personal interests.
