“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!’. She clarified that this was to be “A revolution of love”, and its goal was to fulfil Jesus’ prayer: “That all may be one”. From the response of thousands of young people throughout the world to this invitation the Gen Movement was born, the “new generation” of the Focolare Movement.
