Mentioned this Fratelli Tutti in yesterday’s post, and there it is! Right on time.He doesn’t support socialism or a New World Order, though, right? Wrong! Read it for yourself!–STL
The encyclical letter “Fratelli Tutti” returns to many major themes of Francis’ papacy, reports America’s Gerard O’Connell, but incorporated into a grand vision of social friendship and international cooperation.
In Chapter 3, Francis emphasizes the value of “solidarity” and suggests “re-envisaging the social role of property.” Significantly, he declares that “the Christian tradition has never recognized the right to private property as absolute or inviolable and has stressed the social purpose of all forms of private property.” He calls for “a new way of thinking” about “the foreign debt” of poor countries.
