Photo of the Day - Chiara Lubich and Pope John Paul II

May 17, 2013
CHIARA LUBICH PICTURED WITH POPE JOHN PAUL II IN 1982
Pictured above with Pope John Paul II is Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare movement (1982). Learn more about the fascinating lay woman who founded one of the Church's great ecclessial movements. Tune in this Saturday May 18 at 8:30 pm ET / 6:30 pm PT for the premiere of Centro S.Chiara Audiovisivi's documentary, Trail of Light: Remembering Chiara Lubich. Focolare which now operates in 182 nations with over 100 000 members worldwide owes a great part of its success globally not only to the group's spirituality, which is deeply rooted in the Gospel, but also Focolare's charism of ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, patience, kindness, openness, and a desire to understand before passing judgment. If you can't wait till Saturday, we recommend that you check out Fr. Thomas Rosica's Witness interview with Maria Voce the President of Focolare to witness a radical example of the new evangelization at work.
Repeat broadcast times:
Sunday May 19 at 12:30 am and 2:00 pm ET
Wednesday May 22 at 10:00 am and 8:00 pm ET
