“We need a community that supports and helps us, in which we can help one another to keep looking ahead. How important it is to dream together…” – the inspiring quote from the recent encyclical letter “Fratelli Tutti” by Pope Francis.
Thank you to Sr Anka Kogelnik from the Province of Slovenia for the idea of bringing this thought from the encyclical to us through pictures.
“It is my desire that, in this our time, by acknowledging the dignity of each human person, we can contribute to the rebirth of a universal aspiration to fraternity. Fraternity between all men and women. “Here we have a splendid secret that shows us how to dream and to turn our life into a wonderful adventure. No one can face life in isolation… We need a community that supports and helps us, in which we can help one another to keep looking ahead. How important it is to dream together… By ourselves, we risk seeing mirages, things that are not there. Dreams, on the other hand, are built together”. Let us dream, then, as a single human family, as fellow travelers sharing the same flesh, as children of the same earth which is our common home, each of us bringing the richness of his or her beliefs and convictions, each of us with his or her own voice, brothers and sisters all.”
