"We're on the brink. We need to pull back in a very human, in a very worldwide and in a very local way. In "Fratelli Tutti," Pope Francis offers us an opportunity to re-evaluate our priorities, decisions and overall way of life. He offers us a way to step back from the precipice and to see one another as children of God in need of one another rather than individuals marching through life with the goal of "egotistic self-preservation."--- CARDINAL MICHAEL CZERNY, Undersecretary of the Migrants and Refugees section of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development"In the midst of COVID, 'Fratelli Tutti' asks: Will we learn our lesson? How we respond to this opportunity will prove whether or not the coronavirus pandemic will be a moment of change for the better or, as Pope Francis wrote, "just another tragedy of history from which we learned nothing."-- ST. LOUIS REVIEW EDITORIAL ''The Lakota phrase mitakuye oyasin is often used at the end of a speech by an elder. It simply means, "we are all related, we are all relatives." It expresses an understanding of human existence as belonging to a people who share a common heritage and destiny. And, in stark contrast to radical individualism, it reminds tribal members that they discover who they are, their purpose and dignity, through their relationships with one another. This Native American expression came to mind as I read the Holy Father's new encyclical, Fratelli tutti. Pope's aim is to spark a fresh way of living, by reminding us that only through our relationships as brothers and sisters to one another do we gradually come to know ourselves.''--- CARDINAL BLASE CUPICH, Archbishop of Chicago
"Fratelli Tutti, demonstrates beyond doubt that the current coronavirus pandemic is a reminder that no one can face life in isolation and that the world is actually a single human family. Already in his second encyclical, Laudato si, the Holy Father, Pope Francis had demonstrated our interconnectedness to embrace the Earth, our Mother and Sister. St. John Paul II had earlier said: It is in building the communion of love that the Church appears as a sacrament; as the sign and instrument of intimate union with God and of the unity of the human race. Time has come to break totally with personal interests and cultural barriers, fixed ideological beliefs, religious persecution and radicalised religion; to end terrorism everywhere in the world, and to work assiduously for religious freedom."--- PHILIPPE CARDINAL OUEDRAOGO, President of Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM)"My brother, Pope Francis's message, Fratelli tutti, is an extension of the Document on Human Fraternity, and reveals a global reality in which the vulnerable and marginalized pay the price for unstable positions and decisions... It is a message that is directed to people of good will, whose consciences are alive and restores to humanity consciousness."--- AHMAD AL-TAYYEB, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar" We should read this memorandum from Pope Francis very carefully. 'Fratelli tutti' is the right word at the right time for our divided societies. Francis calls on all of us to be more willing to compromise on global solutions and more commitment in international organizations - and thus hit the core of many conflicts these days. For Francis, one lesson of the Covid 19 pandemic is quite rightly: comes at a time when our societies are becoming more aggressive and selfish.''--- ARMIN LASCHET, Prime Minister of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
