Many encyclicals are directed not only to Catholics but to all "people of good will". Just a few examples:
- Why should this document, addressed to all people of good will, include a chapter dealing with ...
[...] and to the Clergy and Faithful of the entire Catholic World, and to all Men of Good Will.
To the Bishops, Priests, Religious, and Faithful of the Whole Catholic World, and to All Men of Good Will.
Is there an official understanding by the Catholic church of what people of good will mean?
