African Bishops Want Swift Action On New Encyclical

ROME – African bishops have responded to Pope Francis’s new encyclical on human fraternity insisting that “brotherhood” is the remedy to the global challenges posed by the COVID-19 coronavirus and calling for the document’s rapid implementation.

In an Oct. 6 statement, Cardinal Philippe Ouédraogo of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, president of the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM), thanked Pope Francis for his encyclical Fratelli Tutti, published Oct. 4, saying it urges people everywhere toward a “renewed commitment to universal brotherhood, friendship, solidarity and peaceful co-existence.”
