Antipope Francis

Encyclical Letter Fratelli Tutti
on Fraternity and Social Friendship

October 3, 2020

The Vatican’s endless text factory has just released another monster of a document: Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has released his third Encyclical Letter, after Lumen Fidei (2013) and Laudato Si’ (2015). It is entitled Fratelli Tutti (“Brothers All”).

In its English version, Fratelli Tutti has 42,994 words. It consists of eight chapters that include a total of 287 numbered paragraphs, and it has 288 footnotes. The vast majority of them are references to himself, his own documents, his own addresses, and those of the conciliar and post-conciliar pseudo-magisterium. Not surprisingly, there are very few references to the real papal magisterium (i.e. prior to the death of Pope Pius XII). Pius XI is quoted several times on minor matters; the occasional Church Father is quoted, and St. Thomas Aquinas is referenced twice in the body of the text.

The Vatican has made the text of Fratelli Tutti available in sundry languages, of which we make the following available via direct links:

Highlights are also available:

The exhortation was signed on Oct. 3, 2020, but it was not published by the Vatican until today, Oct. 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

The following is a list of links with initial coverage, summaries, and commentary on Fratelli Tutti by various sources:

We have run the text of Fratelli Tutti through a word count engine. According to it, the top three words found in the lengthy document are: human, world, and love.

To counter the false teachings of the new encyclical, here are some real papal documents pertaining to Freemasonry, the unity of the human race, and genuine Christian fraternity:
