God in Otherness. Chiara Lubich’s Ecumenism as Mysticism of Encounter

   | Aug 28, 2020


Chiara Lubich (1920-2008) is well known as founder of the Focolare Movement with its large ecumenical commitment, but not so much in her mystical experience and writings, not yet published in full. In her experience of faith, especially in the mystical period called Paradise ’49, lies the spiritual ground of her engagement in worldwide dialogue. ‘Unity’ (John 17,21) and ‘Jesus Forsaken’ (as a speci!c understanding of redemption) are the two sides of a spiritual life based on the Word of God.
