Pope Francis will travel to Assisi on Oct. 3. to sign a new encyclical on human fraternity at the tomb of St. Francis of Assisi, the director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, and the press officer of the Franciscan community in Assisi, the Rev. Enzo Fortunato, announced at midday today, Sept. 5.
Mr. Bruni said the new encyclical will bear the title “Fratelli tutti,” which could be translated as “Brothers and sisters, all,” although the Vatican has not yet given the official English translation.
