Chiara Lubich's Relationship with the Capuchin Franciscan Third Order in the Early Years of the Focolare Movement (1943-1949)

Lucia Abignente


The origin of the Focolare Movement is historically set in the years 1943-1949, the period in which Chiara Lubich and the first group of Focolarini were a part of the Capuchin Third Order of Trent. The article starts from this fact to describe the features of the relationship between Francescanism and the new eccelsial reality that was coming to life, making use of documentary souces and witnesses, most of which are unpublished.
