Minister General, Br. Michael A. Perry, joins a group of panelists for a live webinar to discuss the peace dimensions of Fratelli Tutti.

Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, has much to contribute to the theory and praxis of peace, but this is a theme that has received relatively little attention since its release in October 2020.

How can it be a resource for peacebuilding and impact the practice of peacebuilding? Does it change teaching on just war? How does it open dialogue on peace with Muslims? How does its Franciscan influence deepen the understanding of peacebuilding?

This webinar will examine these questions and more as it probes the peace dimensions of the encyclical.
