Saturday 8th July
Hanora Desmond will be giving a presentation of the story of Chiara Lubich with a DVD called “Stream of Light” after the 10:30am Mass. Bishop Martinelli, introducing the call for Chiara’s beatification and canonisation last year said “with the passing of time her fame for holiness continues to increase.” Pope Francis sent a message asking “to make known to the people of God the life and works of one who has lit a new light for the church on the path to Unity.” The young teacher Chiara, looking around at the devastation of her native city of Trent during the 2nd World War took the line from the scriptures “May they all be one..” to guide her life’s work which unfolded in an unimaginable way. Never has her injunction “be the first to love” been more needed.
