Chiara Lubich on Christian Unity
This little book offers a refreshing approach to Christian unity based on Chiara Lubich’s spirituality of communion. It contains a series of Chiara’s addresses to the World Council of Churches, given over few days, and forming a kind of short ‘course’ on a lifestyle for ecumenism.
The principles behind this approach are various but all express humility, openness and respect for the other. It is a ‘methodology’ that already has brought together thousands of people from many different traditions in an experience of profound mutual love.
Preface by Cardinal Walter Kasper
About the Author
In 1943 Chiara Lubich (1920-2008) founded the Focolare Movement, inspired by Jesus’ prayer on the eve of his death ‘May they all be one’ (Jn 17: 21). Only in 1961 did the first ecumenical contacts begin. After that, starting with Lutheran Evangelicals, and then among Anglicans and Orthodox, Focolare spirituality spread to over 350 different Churches.
