    Back in print again! May They All Be One is the best introduction to the origins and life of the Focolare Movement. With clear, vivid storytelling Chiara Lubich opens us to the adventure of living for God. “Back in 1943, in the northern Italian city of Trent, there were just a few of us. But it was wartime. Bombs were falling, destroying parts of our city and claiming their victims. We looked around at all the ruins and asked ourselves: ‘Is there anything that does not pass away? Any reality that no bombs can destroy?’ And as though someone had enlightened us from within, we answered: ‘Yes, there is such a reality: it is God. God endures forever.’ So, driven by a supernatural force, we decided to make God the “Ideal” of our lives.” (Chiara Lubich)
