  • “Belief in God, and the worship of God are not enough to ensure that we actually live in a way pleasing to God. The guarantee of an authentic openness to God is a way of practising the faith that helps open our hearts to our brothers and sisters. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 8 October 2020
  • “The process of building fraternity, be it local or universal, can only be undertaken by spirits that are free and open to authentic encounters. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 8 October 2020
  • “Video” @Pontifex 8 October 2020
  • “All of us, as believers, need to recognize that love takes first place: love must never be put at risk, and the greatest danger lies in failing to love (cf. 1 Cor 13:1–13). #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 9 October 2020
  • “Our love for others, for who they are, moves us to seek the best for their lives. Only by cultivating this way of relating to one another will we make possible a social friendship that excludes no one and a fraternity that is open to all. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 9 October 2020
  • “All Christians and people of good will are today called to work not only for the abolition of the death penalty in all its forms, but also to work for the improvement of prison conditions, out of respect for the human dignity of persons deprived of their freedom.” @Pontifex 10 October 2020
  • “Every person has the right to live with dignity and to develop him or herself completely, even if they were born with or grew up with limitations. For the immense dignity of the human person is not based on circumstances but on the intrinsic worth of their being. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 10 October 2020
  • “We achieve fulfilment when we break down walls and our hearts are filled with faces and names. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 11 October 2020
  • “Appearances notwithstanding, every person is immensely holy and deserves our love. Consequently, if I can help at least one person to have a better life, that already justifies the offering of my life. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 11 October 2020
  • “It is not enough to accept the invitation to follow the Lord; one must be open to a journey of conversion, which changes the heart. The garment of mercy, which God offers us unceasingly, is the free gift of his love; it is grace. # GospelOfTheDay” @Pontifex 11 October 2020
  • “I am near to those people affected by wildfires: on the West Coast of the United States, especially California, the central regions of South America, the Pantanal area, Paraguay, the banks of the Paraná River, and Argentina. May the Lord sustain them.” @Pontifex 11 October 2020
  • “The witness of Blessed Carlo Acutis indicates to today’s young people that true happiness is found by putting God in first place and serving Him in our brothers and sisters, especially the least.” @Pontifex 12 October 2020
  • “Tenderness is love that draws near and becomes real. A movement that starts from our heart and reaches the eyes, the ears and the hands. Tenderness is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women. #FratelliTutti” @Pontifex 13 October 2020
  • “In #Prayer, we place our worries and petitions in the hands of God, and we trust that He will listen, for He knows what we need and will give us what is good for us. #GeneralAudience” @Pontifex 14 October 2020
