Opening of beatification process for Chiara Lubich

2013-12-09

March 14 of this year marked five years since the death of Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare Movement. That meant the five-year waiting period, required by Canon Law, to open the cause for her beatification was over.

As a result, many Catholics and non-Catholics are calling upon the movement Lubich founded to press for the opening of her beatification process. They consider her to be a role model of personal commitment for the good of humanity.

The president of the Focolare movement, Maria Voce, has already signed the official petition, and will hand it to the bishop of Frascati, the diocese where Lubich passed away. 

The movement's charism focuses on promoting brotherhood and unity among all people from different faiths. They claim about 2.5 million members, distributed among 194 countries.
