Montet, Switzerland, August 15, 2001. Chiara Lubich was surrounded by 50 young people and several professors from the Focolare’s Centre for Studies who were about to give birth to the Abba School and the future Sophia University Institute. Chiara wished to speak to them from the heart, conveying to them that particular experience with Igino Giordani that lies at the foundation of the Focolare Movement: the Pact of Unity at Holy Communion. It was July 16, 1949; Chiara was 29 years old.
A study on the Pact of July 16, 1949 has been published in a book entitled: Il Patto del ’49 nell’esperienza di Chiara Lubich.
