Helpful experiences

Just wanted to tell you that the July Living City was excellent. It was chock full of lived experiences, which is how we learn to put the spirituality into practice in our lives.

Spiritual delight

I introduced my mother to Living City, and she loves all the articles. She has known the Focolare through me, but because of the magazine, she is learning more about it. One day, she asked me to buy her a book, The Cry by Chiara Lubich, because she read about it in the magazine. I have to admit, I have not read the book but I got it for both of us.

Now, since I get extra copies of Living City, she wants to give one to our nearby church, where she goes almost every day. I am grateful to you for giving my mother spiritual delight and also for making me discover more about the Movement!
