Did You know?

The phrase “fratelli tutti” is taken from St. Francis of Assisi’s “sixth admonition” to the friars, all of whom were men. In Italian, “fratelli” means “brothers” or “brothers and sisters” since the masculine form of nouns is traditionally used when referring to males and females collectively.

In the new document Pope Francis wrote that he was “encouraged” by a dialogue with Muslim leader, Sheikh Ahmad el-Tayeb, grand imam of Al-Azhar Mosque, and by their joint statement that “God has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and has called them to live together as brothers and sisters.”
