Pope Francis says actions based on the common good must form the bedrock of our lives. He has a vision of society where human dignity and the rights of all are respected.
In Fratelli Tutti, his third encyclical, Pope Francis calls on us all to become agents of change in the world. He states, ‘the pain, uncertainty and fear, and the realisation of our own limitations brought on by the pandemic, have only made it all the more urgent that we rethink our styles of life, our relationships, the organisation of our societies, and, above all, the meaning of our existence.’
As Francis puts it, “if only we might rediscover once and for all that we need one another, and that in this way our human family can experience a rebirth; with all its faces, all its hands and all its voices, beyond the walls we have erected.”
