The Eucharist has always held an importance place in the life of Chiara Lubich, ever since her childhood. Both for her, personally, and in her experience with her first companions. The same was true throughout the decades in which the Movement was being built: it was marked by the presence of the Eucharist. And it couldn’t have been otherwise, since the Eucharist is the soul, the heart of the Church’s life. The action of the Holy Spirit, through the charism of unity, caused a great attraction in Chiara and her first companions for the Eucharist, so much so that they couldn’t wait for the moment of the Mass when they could share their life with Eucharistic Jesus. And later, when they began to travel around Italy, the first focolarine passionately peered from the train windows in search of church towers, so that they could look at them. There was the Eucharistic Jesus, there was their love. There is a wonderful interconnection between the Eucharist and the spirituality of unity.
