Working together to build a culture of solidarity

In an address during his visit to the community of Varginha, a favela in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis spoke of the necessity of building a culture of solidarity, where others are not seen as rivals but as brothers and sisters.

The aim of this resource is to help young people consider practical ways in which they can build a culture of solidarity. It includes links or embedded clips from CAFOD and Youth SVP.

The download contains a reflection based on the life of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. You can also read it here.
