Chiara Lubich-Rimini: A Gift, A Challenge

INVITO 10 MARZO 2019 pagina 1picAmong the many honorary citizenships bestowed on Chiara Lubich is that awarded in 1997 by the city of Rimini, the capital of the province in Emilia Romagna, bearing the same name. It is a city that Chiara visited four times, for varying occasions. Rimini knows the wounds of the Second World War with its invasions and the devastation of the social fabric which led to 80% of the city being destroyed. But the project of reconstruction went beyond the rebuilding of houses and material goods; there was a rebuilding of values which make this city a place of welcome and a symbol of fraternity. In fact, it has been described as “European Capital of Volunteering” due to the vast number of voluntary associations and groups that operate in the territory.

“Chiara Lubich and Guglielmo Marconi: Great personalities of the 20th century, protagonists of the communication era.”

What is the bond that unites Chiara Lubich to Guglielmo Marconi? What do these two figures of the last century have in common? What places, events, stories unite them? The conference, which was held on 6 April 2019 at the Civic Theatre in Rocca di Papa, presented precisely these questions through a reinterpretation of the life and thought of the two protagonists, a presentation that was able to communicate to those present the inherent strength which underlies the complexity of their existential experience. At the heart of the two figures there is an inherent love for humanity, a readiness to act, the ability to push the boundaries and to overcome all obstacles, the intuitions that enabled them to become prophetic persons of their times.

Early Letters
New City Press

Chiara Lubich is now being called a great Catholic mystic of our times. In these letters we encounter this mystical side of Chiara who is also the bearer of a charism, a gift from the Holy Spirit in response to the special needs of the Church and of the world. Chiara’s charism is unity, the unity that Jesus asked for us from his Father: “May they all be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity” (Jn 17: 22-23).
