Reflecting on Pope Francis’ new encyclical – “Fratelli Tutti”

I recently finished reading Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti On Fraternity and Social Friendship.  I read it in book form (Cottbus, Germany:  HijezGlobal Press. 2020).  You can also find it online on the Vatican website at

I found several interesting discussions in it and expect to write three or four blog articles from it in the coming weeks.  As I began to write the first article I realized it was a bit longer than most of my blog articles and the formatting might be a little difficult in a blog article.  So, I changed the formatting some and offer the article as a PDF file by clicking on this link

This article reflects on the first portion of the encyclical regarding how we interact with one another, especially on digital media.  I hope to write the rest of the articles in the next two weeks. When the articles are ready, they will be posted here and at


Fr. Jeff
