The dossier traces the stages in the historical journey of the Focolare, the life of the focolarini today, social involvement, and faith in daily life. Compiled by Vittoria Prisciandaro, the insert opens with the words: “Giving voice to the grassroots and to the Movement’s president, Maria Voce”.
Jesus Magazine which was founded in 1979, now publishes 37 thousand copies. The November issue will come with an attachment – the first in a series of audio books – dedicated, for this occasion, to Chiara Lubich. The anthology called “Love conquers all” contains thoughts of Chiara Lubich, recited by Italian actors.
“Focolare. Ideal of fraternity”. In the 32 pages dedicated to the Focolare – besides historical sites and stages and factual examples of daily Gospel living – there are also questions directed at the president and co-president of the Movement. Questions regarding the place of priests and bishops in the Movement were put to Giancarlo Faletti. Questions regarding ecclesial movements, education, inculturation, justice and reform, interfaith dialogue and the multiethnic society were directed to Maria Voce, “Emmaus, the lawyer-theologian who now holds the position that was once occupied by Chiara Lubich.”
An online interview (in Italian) with Maria Voce can be found on the Jesus Magazine website: http://www.stpauls.it/jesus/default.htm.
