Letter from Bishop Checchio on the International Day of Human Fraternity


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As you may know, the Holy Father is participating in a virtual meeting today with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, with the United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, and other leaders, marking the first-ever International Day of Human Fraternity. The meeting can be viewed by visiting the Vatican News website.

In a time in which we are sadly afflicted by division, this meeting offers us a reminder that – regardless of our economic, political, and societal status or our race, ethnicity, or religious beliefs – we are all bound together as children of God, equally made in His image and likeness.
