Quadro di Gabriele Marsili: Cielo e terra

The charism or spiritual gift from God to Chiara Lubich which she gave to the Focolare Movement is the Spirituality of Unity. It is based on the words from John’s Gospel ‘Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name (…) so that they may be one as we are one’ (Jn 17:12).

The spirituality expressed by Chiara Lubich soon became defined as a ‘collective’ or ‘communitarian’ spirituality, always in view of ‘That all may be one’ (Jn 17,21).

In Chiara the points of the spirituality of unity were not developed through thought out plans, reflections or some theological points. Rather, this is a spirituality demanding an immediate action, decisive and practical, something that brings life.

There are twelve point to the Spirituality. See links above
