- The vision of Fratelli Tutti. Fr Kevin Lenehan Master Catholic Theological College University of Divinity

- Reflecting on Australia’s Relations in Southeast Asia. Rev Andy Tiver Uniting Church in Australia, Co-Chair Philippine-Australia Solidarity Association (PASA)
When Pope Francis speaks, as he did with Laudato Si, he often reaches out to many others beyond the body of the Catholic Church. Similarly, Fratelli Tutti, issued last year, is a groundbreaking vision urging us to “a Culture of Encounter”, transcending the barriers to genuine peace which are growing in our time.
Fratelli Tutti, or Brothers All, was St Francis of Assisi’s way of addressing his fellow friars in the 13th century. Today, he may well have said Beloved All.
Pope Francis challenges us to think not as isolated nations or groups, but as interconnected in the ‘one human family’, to exercise our shared humanity, irrespective of origin, nationality, ethnicity and religion; to build bridges, not walls. Dialogue is a necessity, not an option. We must seek ways of working with people of other faiths and goodwill for peace and reconciliation in the world, as individuals and as part of larger groupings, and society.
