Pope Francis on Transforming A Broken World

Pope Francis on Transforming A Broken World

In his recently published encyclical entitled “On Fraternity and Social Friendship,” Pope Francis first sketches a bleak but accurate picture of the broken world of which we are a part and then provides a program for transforming it. He offers the story of the Good Samaritan as an example of how we are all called to open our hearts to the whole world. Join us as we explore and reflect upon this new encyclical.
