Chiara Lubich con le gen, 1968

“Youth of the world, unite!”

This was the appeal Chiara Lubich made in 1967, addressing the young adults and children who were part of the Movement at that time; she invited them to “Get together the biggest number possible of youth around the world and begin a large scale revolution with the cry ‘Let’s unite!’.
