In the framework of the Cause of Beatification of the Servant of God Chiara Lubich, which opened on 27 January 2015 in the Diocese of Frascati, a practical brochure with all-encompassing contents on the figure of the Founder of the Focolare Movement has been released, and is momentarily available in Italian.
The new publication aims at illustrating, in a simple communicative language, her intense life and the numberless works and initiatives she promoted.
It is structured in three parts: Chiara and the charism of unity; the “great openings or dialogues in the ecumenical, interreligious and contemporary cultural fields; and her spiritual insight into the mystery of “Jesus Forsaken,” which she understood, lived and proposed as the “key” to achieving unity with God, and among peoples.
The idea of preparing a biographic Profile arose from the need to divulge some of the intense work of the “collection” which the Postulation of the Cause of beatification of Chiara is doing, starting from what she said about sanctity, and of how she lived it and proposed it to all, starting from the letters she wrote in the early years of the movement.
The drafting of the text was shared along all the phases of elaboration, not only by the members of the Postulation but also by experts, friends, elderly and the youth.
Those who wish to receive one or more paper copies may address:
