War-torn Europe, the bombs smashing all that is precious or beautiful, hatred unleashed on all sides – in some ways, perhaps, a strange setting for the birth of a new Movement founded upon love for God and God’s love for his children. Or is it so strange? Against the backdrop of destruction, which emphasizes how everything passes away, that which has eternal value becomes clear: through the tears at night the stars appear.
Through a series of ‘interviews’ with Chiara Lubich, foundress of the Focolare Movement, Michel Pochet traces the development of the Movement and its spirituality and outlines many of its most significant features. In the course of this, many fascinating or little-known facts come to light. This book is a ‘must’ for all who want to deepen their knowledge of the life and spirituality of the Focolare Movement or who wish to get to know it for the first time.
