On October 26, Archbishop Gabriele Caccia, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations in New York, gave a virtual presentation to the bishops, priests, and deacons of the Archdiocese of New York on Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis’ recent encyclical on universal fraternity and social friendship.

Archbishop Caccia was asked to give the presentation by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, who hosted the session and introduced Archbishop Caccia. Clergy from the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre also participated.

After remarks about the purpose, audience, and structure of the encyclical, signed by Pope Francis on October 3 in Assisi and published the following day, Archbishop Caccia concentrated on Pope Francis’ use of Jesus’ Parable of the Good Samaritan as the means to create a society of friendship and fraternity by becoming “neighbor” to those in need.
