Pope takes market financial system, nationalism to assignment as he addresses COVID-19 in contemporary encyclical

Pope Francis travelled to the birthplace of his namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, to signal his latest papal letter, which addresses points urgent to the Roman Catholic Church and the world because it reels from COVID-19. Nonetheless the title, which in English is “Brothers All,” has raised eyebrows for its lack of gender inclusivity.

Pope Francis signs his latest encyclical, titled Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All), within the crypt where St. Francis of Assisi is buried in Assisi, Italy, on Saturday. The file includes a plea for ‘the miracle of kindness’ and ‘social dialogue for a brand contemporary custom.’ (Vatican Media/Handout by strategy of Reuters)

A day after Pope Francis travelled to the birthplace of his namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, to signal his contemporary encyclical, Fratelli Tutti or “Brothers All” in English, its contents have been made public Sunday morning.

The 86-page file addressing points urgent to the Roman Catholic Church and the world because it reels from COVID-19 is largely a certain-spoken critique of a planet-plundering market financial system and nationalist-populism.
