Parallel Texts from Pope Francis and Brother Charles-Mission of Brotherhood and Sisterhood

Pope Francis:

"Always, but especially in these times of pandemic, it is important to grow in our daily ability to widen our circle, to reach out to others who, albeit physically close to us, are not immediately part of our "circle of interests." To be on mission, "is to be willing to think as Christ does, to believe with him that those around us are also my brothers and sisters."

Brother Charles

‘I want all the people who live here, Christians, Muslims, Jews, to get used to thinking of me as their brother, a universal brother, the brother of all. They have started to call my house the fraternity and it makes me very happy.’
