An excerpt from a book publishing this month: Christmas at the Nativity, by Pope Francis. Published by New City Press.
On 7th December 1943 in Trent (Italy) Chiara Lubich pronounced her yes to God. A yes that, over time, has multiplied, generating a large family, the Focolare Movement, made up of people from different continents, ages, cultures and vocations
We asked Adam Bucko to join the network of contributing writers here at Living City because his life and work resonate with Focolare values. We asked him, have you had an experience with someone of another religious tradition in which that person made you a better Christian? He wrote this essay in response.
