Focolare Movement

The Focolare Movement has brought spiritual and social renewal.   In less than 60 years of life, the movement has spread worldwide to 182 countries counting more than two million adherents with an outreach, difficult to quantify, of a few million people. 

The “focolare” is the first nucleus of unity from which the Movement developed “according to a precise plan of God which revealed itself over time,” as Chiara Lubich affirmed. 

It is a small, modern community modelled after the family of Nazareth, composed of lay people, single men and women (in separate communities), as well as married people who live in their own families, yet are totally given to God according to their state of life.

The members have as their primary commitment that of living the commandment of reciprocal love totally, so as to keep alive always the presence of Jesus, which he promised to those who are united in his name (Mt 18,20).

The first focolare started in 1944 in Trent, Italy, with Chiara Lubich and her first companions. In 1948, also the first men’s focolare house.
