Pandemic, Politics, and Solidarity: A Discussion of Fratelli Tutti
Five years since his last encyclical, Pope Francis' Fratelli Tutti is a powerful message to a suffering world. In light of its release, the Boisi Center will host a theological ethicist, a preeminent ecclesiologist and church historian, a former journalist and specialist in the U.S. Catholic Church, and an attorney and director of policy for the AFL-CIO to discuss the new document, situating it within Catholic social teaching and the larger theological conversation, evaluating its implications for our current political situation, and exploring Pope Francis' vision for the post-pandemic world.
