Annual Interfaith Conference 2011: The Spirituality of Unity: A Gift for Our Times


Many are concerned that increasing polarization is making it difficult to reach across differences in order to imagine and work toward solutions to our society’s political, economic, and cultural challenges.  On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Focolare Movement’s presence in the United States, this conference delves into the unique resources that the Focolare spirituality of unity might offer for transcending divisions and joining together to sustain constructive projects for the common good.  Topics for discussion include the “Economy of Communion,” featured in Pope Benedict’s 2009 social encyclical,  Caritas in veritate; as well as the “Love of Neighbor and the Law” interfaith project for lawyers, judges and law students.
