Celebrations are starting today, 7 December, all over the world, to mark the 100th anniversary of Chiara Lubich’s birth.
In this article written in 2008, not long after Chiara’s death, Sally McAllister recalls some of the key moments of Chiara’s visits to Britain between 1965 and 2004 and the contribution she brought to ecumenism and dialogue with people of different faiths or convictions. Her words on those occasions encourage, indicate pathways to walk along and offer sparks of hope that continue to inspire us today.
76 years have passed since that morning of 7thDecember 1943. A 23-year-old girl, Silvia,consecrated herself to God in secret. She will be known by everyone with another name, Chiara. And today, 7thDecember 2019, the centenary of Chiara Lubich’s birth begins. You have perhaps understood that this link-up will be special: we will try to go the roots of that yes to God said 76 years ago, and we will travel the world to meet her charism today -this time in a special way -in the “focolare”.[more]
