A conference on the charismatic figure of Chiara Lubich, who knew how to look to the new millennium with all its epoch-making changes, proposing the ideal of universal fraternity.
This is the title of the conference to be held on 18-19 February and promoted by the Chiara Lubich Centre and the Central National Library in Rome. Consonances and common points between the spirituality of unity and lines of thought of great figures of our times.
22 January 2020 -22 January 2021: the Centenary year of Chiara Lubich's birth ends today. 365 days, marked by the pandemic, quite different from what has been planned, but they were ones that opened new paths and new perspectives.
“Chiara Lubich - love conquers all", a film shown recently on TV, offered a fascinating and historically accurate presentation of her life. The exhibition dedicated to the founder of the Focolare Movement, based at the Gallerie in Trent, Italy, was a source on inspiration for the cast and crew. Its images and documentation provided a historical and social context for her story.
Originally planned as part of the centenary year of Chiara Lubich’s birth, this event was postponed due to the pandemic, and the funds raised distributed to people in need. It’s now being launched on social media by the Focolare Movement in Brazil, with the original content but communicated in a completely new way.
On Sunday October18th, a web meeting will bring together some of the first young people of the Focolare Movement who, in the 1960s, accepted Chiara Lubich's invitation to the new generations to commit themselves to a united world. Moderator: journalist Gianni Bianco.
