The aim of New City publications is to promote a more united world through both the monthly magazine and the books it publishes and to support and inform its readers about the value of dialogue in many different fields.
The publishing house, one of 30 worldwide, is rooted in the Focolare spirituality of unity. The Focolare Movement counts among its followers members of most Christian traditions, as well as members of world religions and people who do not hold a specific religious belief but who want to work for the good of humanity.
The founder of Focolare, Chiara Lubich (1920-2008), inspired by the prayer of Jesus ‘that they may all be one’ (see Jn. 17: 20) committed herself to working for universal fraternity and to that end the articles in both the magazine and the books that New City publishes all in some way or other help promote dialogue, mutual understanding and unity in every sphere of human activity.
If we look at our own cities, what people yearn for today is precisely a ‘new city’ and a ‘fraternal city’ where, beyond every division, we are sisters and brothers to each other. Our goal is to be a pathway to fraternity, a means of dialogue at all levels, and an instrument of communion and unity.
Chiara Lubich, January 2006
