comunità in MessicoOnce, when Chiara Lubich was asked about the structure of the Movement, the foundress of the Focolare first wished to point out something: “Before speaking of the structure of the Movement,” she said, “of its branches, etc, I’d like to point out that we see the Movement as a single entity, as a  whole, an entity which first lives within itself the message that it then tries to bring to the world: unity.
