On November 14, 2021, at 13:00 pm, at the San Luis Rey Mission
(Oceanside, CA), Prof. Martín Carbajo Núñez
, ofm, will give a conference on the theme "Fraternity, familiar relationships, and politics in the light of Fratelli Tutti
Prof. Carbajo will present the subject of fraternity in the encyclical Fratelli tutti
and he will explore its Franciscan roots. The Pope asserts that “it was the evangelical witness of St. Francis, with his school of thought, that gave this term the meaning it then preserved over the centuries.” The key to understand it rightly is found in the encounter with the needy (leper, wounded), which brings to light the dignity of each human person and the need for social friendship in order to achieve a "healthy and open" community life.
The meeting has been organized by the Secular Franciscan Order
