Fratelli Tutti speaks to the day to day realities of our modern world.   It calls to action people and their institutions on diverse topics covering immigration, politics, justice, mercy, religion and interpersonal dialogue.  It points to Fraternal love and social friendship as the way to build better, more just and peaceful societies worldwide.   It adds valuable detail to previous teachings of  Pope Francis such as The Joy of the Gospel issued in 2013.    

Lord, Father of our human family,
you created all human beings equal in dignity:
pour forth into our hearts a fraternal spirit
and inspire in us a dream of renewed encounter,
dialogue, justice and peace.
Move us to create healthier societies
and a more dignified world,
a world without hunger, poverty, violence and war.

May our hearts be open
to all the peoples and nations of the earth.
May we recognize the goodness and beauty
that you have sown in each of us,
and thus forge bonds of unity, common projects,
and shared dreams. Amen.
