It was a delight to welcome to afternoon tea recently nearly 40 bishops, friends of the Focolare Movement.
For four days the leaders from almost thirty different countries had met to explore the theme: “The Eucharist, mystery of communion”.
In an audience, Pope Francis praised the gathering as a “bright and attractive sign” of the common faith in Our Lord, Jesus Christ. “If we, as Christians, desire to respond in a meaningful way to the many problems and dramas of our time, then we need to speak and act as brothers, so that everyone can easily recognize that we belong to Christ, the One Lord."
Here is the text of my interview with Tim King of Focolare, in the movement’s New City magazine.
