Vatican City, Oct 4, 2020 / 07:05 am
A Vatican presentation Sunday for Pope Francis' third encyclical, "Fratelli tutti," highlighted the involvement of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity and its plans to promote the document.
"Fratelli tutti" was presented to journalists and other guests at the Vatican Oct. 4, shortly before its release.
The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity originated in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It began collaborating with the Vatican following Pope Francis' signing of the joint declaration on human fraternity with Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, in February 2019. The group takes its focus from the declaration.
Those who spoke at the presentation included Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, and Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.
