BIS #6254 Divyadaan MPh symposium on Fratelli Tutti

by Cleric Samuel Baliarsingh for BISMumbai

Divyadaan Salesian Institute of Philosophy-Nashik, organized a philosophical symposium on Pope Francis' latest encyclical Fratelli Tutti on 18 January 2021. The event was coordinated by the 1st year scholastics of the Masters in Philosophy programme.

The symposium commenced with prayer invoking the presence of God. Rector and Principal, Father Banzelao Teixeira, gave a short reflection encouraging the students and other participants to imbibe the spirit of the Good Samaritan. The symposium consisted of three well-researched talks by the M.Ph students, focusing on the encyclical themes of ‘Human Family’, ‘Fraternity through Justice, Equality, and Dialogue’, and ‘Peace’.

Post-presentation some time was allotted to a wide-ranging discussion. The symposium ended with the ecumenical prayer from the end of the encyclical.
