… “We Christians ask that, in those countries where we are a minority, we be guaranteed freedom, even as we ourselves promote that freedom for non-Christians in places where they are a minority

… it is possible to find a means of serene, ordered and peaceful coexistence, accepting our differences and rejoicing that, as children of the one God, we are all brothers and sisters”

… the omission of Dignitatis Humanae and the presence of surgically selected passages from the Declaration on inter-religious dialogue

We believe that this one true religion subsists in the Catholic and Apostolic Church, to which the Lord Jesus committed the duty of spreading it abroad among all men” (Dignitatis Humanae)

… points out the path of evangelisation as an irreplaceable obligation for the Church

… “The Church ‘has a public role over and above her charitable and educational activities.’ She works for ‘the advancement of humanity and of universal fraternity’”

… Number 277 recalls Nostra Aetate 2, but omits the incisive and troublesome passages

… there is no trace of this precise obligation of the Church, which is the very purpose of her existence

… “Others drink from other sources. For us the wellspring of human dignity and fraternity is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ”

… the unity of the human race is achieved without any adherence to Jesus Christ and the supernatural action of the Church

… the Gospel is simply one of many sources that can contribute to the common good

Fratelli Tutti has decided instead to extinguish this announcement, to accommodate the Church among the architects of a new world without Christ, to give the green light to the idea that the unity of the human race can be achieved apart from the divine person of Christ, if anything by using the Gospel as one of the many inspirational texts of humanitarian principles
