This greatly welcomed encyclical is a beautiful reflection on humanity's path forward to a deeply desired and sought-after peace. Pope Francis addresses his renewed call to universal fraternity "to all people of good will, regardless of their religious convictions."
As he considers the "universal scope" of fraternal love, Pope Francis paints a picture of a social peace of "enduring stability" that draws its sustenance from a culture of encounter and respecting "the truth of our human dignity." He rebukes "fundamentalist intolerance" and other forms of "shameless aggression" that get in the way of fraternal peace. Pope Francis asks, instead, that we recover kindness and forgiveness, so that we could arise as "stars shining in the midst of darkness."
