The Focolare Movement has existed for many years and so has its own history and organisation involving many people.How is this mass of people who make up the Focolare Movement organised? Just as in the human body there is a heart which supports the whole being, the same holds true of the Focolare Movement.

The heart of the Focolare Movement is the people who brought it to birth: the men and women focolarini. Chiara herself defined them, more than once as, “the guardians of the flame of the love of God and their neighbours.”  The focolarini live in small single sex communities known as focolares. They have lived out that sentence from the gospel to ‘leave father, mother, children and fields’ in order to follow God, leaving them completely available for the Movement throughout the world. There are also some married people who are part of the focolare communities who are called to a total giving of themselves to God as married people within that community whilst maintaining their commitments and duties as married people.
