Encyclical Letter of the Holy Father Francis on Fraternity and Social Friendship

Holy Father Francis says in the introduction of his Encyclical Letter:

“Issues of human fraternity and social friendship have always been a concern of mine. In recent years, I have spoken of them repeatedly and in different settings. In this Encyclical, I have sought to bring together many of those statements and to situate them in a broader context of reflection.”

Inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi, Bartholomew, the Orthodox Patriarch, the Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb and many individuals and groups throughout the world, he offers this social encyclical as an invitation to dialogue among all people of good will:

“The following pages do not claim to offer a complete teaching on fraternal love, but rather to consider its universal scope, its openness to every man and woman. I offer this social Encyclical as a modest contribution to continued reflection, in the hope that in the face of present-day attempts to eliminate or ignore others, we may prove capable of responding with a new vision of fraternity and social friendship that will not remain at the level of words.”


Carta encíclica del Santo Padre Francisco sobre la fraternidad y la amistad social

El Santo Padre Franciso dice en la introducción de su Carta encíclica:

“Las cuestiones relacionadas con la fraternidad y la amistad social han estado siempre entre mis preocupaciones. Durante los últimos años me he referido a ellas reiteradas veces y en diversos lugares. Quise recoger en esta encíclica muchas de esas intervenciones situándolas en un contexto más amplio de reflexión.”

Inspirado por el Santo San Francisco de Asís, Bartholomew, el patriarca ortodoxo, el gran imán Ahmad Al-Tayyeb y muchas personas y grupos de todo el mundo,  ofrece esta encíclica social como una invitación al diálogo entre las personas de buena voluntad:

Las siguientes páginas no pretenden resumir la doctrina sobre el amor fraterno, sino detenerse en su dimensión universal, en su apertura a todos. Entrego esta encíclica social como un humilde aporte a la reflexión para que, frente a diversas y actuales formas de eliminar o de ignorar a otros, seamos capaces de reaccionar con un nuevo sueño de fraternidad y de amistad social que no se quede en las palabras.”
