For 24 years Chiara Lubich nourished spiritually the many people born from her charism with the thoughts of her Conference Calls. Twice a month it brought countless people together in a kind of virtual cenacle. There was no better opportunity of renewing the commitment they had made together to make life a ‘holy journey’.
For Chiara holiness does not so much exist in removing our faults one by one, but in loving, in thinking of others, in forgetting ourselves. In this way she formed the members of the Focolare Movement for a life of communion.
Unity is the ‘high point of the Gospel’, and Pope John Paul II saw the task of ‘making the Church the home and school of communion’ as the great challenge of the third millennium, as an educative principle in every place of formation, and this not only for Christians but for everyone.
Chiara Lubich (1920-2008) was the founder of the Focolare Movement and her gospelbased spirituality has inspired millions. She is an internationally renowned religious writer and has published over thirty books in dozens of languages with more than one million copies sold. The movement to which she gave birth stands at the forefront of ecumenical and interreligious dialogue
