The Founder

Lubich, an Italian educator and author, founded the Focolare Movement, which aims to bring unity among people and promote universal family.

In her early days, in 1943, the laywoman had proposed themes and openings, which was acknowledged by the Second Vatican Council. Valuing life and seeking the meaning of suffering were the driving force to Lubich’s spiritual movement, thus carving a path of religious and civil holiness that is accessible to anyone.

The luminary joined our Creator on March 14, 2008 in Italy.

At present, Focolare Movement has reached 182 countries with around 2 million followers strong from different walks of life and from various religions that share the same cause.
