"Fratelli Tutti" -- An Indian Perspective. A Webinar Talk



"Fratelli Tutti" is Pope Francis' invitation to every human being to build Global Fraternity and Social Friendship. Rather than simply mentioning the 'content' chapter-wise, I strive to read Pope Francis' mind as a theologian from the Global South. Truly, "Fratelli Tutti" is a must-read and must-act upon masterpiece from a world leader.
