In this episode of Spotlights, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim talk with the host (Sam Mickey) about the new encyclical from Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti. They articulate historical, religious, and ecological contexts for understanding what this encyclical means and how it is relevant for efforts to create a more loving, just, and open world. You can read the encyclical here.
You can watch the episode below or listen to it (audio-only) here. As always, an archive of previous episodes can be found here, with audio versions available here.
This week’s episode fits well with the recent TED Talk that Pope Francis presented on the topic of climate change. You can watch it here. (Make sure to turn on Closed Captioning [CC] for translation.)
