On October 3, 2020, in the chapel of the tomb of Saint Francis of Assisi, Pope Francis signed his latest encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. Written in eight chapters, the encyclical seeks to underline what it means in concrete terms to recognize the intrinsic dignity of every human person. The pope uses the parable of the Good Samaritan as a model for all of our social relationships. This encyclical, which is described as a social encyclical, deals with many topics, including the common good and democracy as well as the vocation of the politician, the need for a culture of dialogue and reconciliation, and the role of the great religions in our globalized world.
