Pope Francis: Document on Human Fraternity

 

Dear Colleagues,

Pope Francis: Document on Human Fraternity

The Holy Father has requested, via the Apostolic Nuncio and the Bishops’ Conference, that the attached document, signed jointly by Pope Francis and Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar,* be disseminated as widely as possible.

The Pope and the Grand Imam want the Document to become the object of study and reflection in all schools, universities and institutes of education and formation. The hope is that such an effort might contribute towards inspiring new generations to promote peace and the common good and, in particular, to defend the rights of the oppressed. (The attachment includes a copy of the Nuncio’s letter.)

The document itself can most easily be accessed on the Vatican website, at the following link:

http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/travels/2019/outside/documents/papa-francesco_20190204_documento-fratellanza-umana.html

A link to this document will also be sent out to schools in the CES monthly newsletter. I would be grateful if you would consider how this Document and/or the messages within it might be the object of study and reflection in school.

With thanks and best wishes,

Marie
