by Thomas Masters and Amy Uelmen
"So, what do you do?" is a question many people ask members of new ecclesial movements such as the Focolare. Thomas Masters and Amy Uelmen answer the question by sharing the stories of children, young adults, married couples, senior citizens, single men and women, sisters, priests, and bishops who are part of the Movement. Each person has been struck by the same profound realization that inspired the Focolare's founder, Chiara Lubich, during the bombardment of Trent in World War II: God is Love. Through these personal narratives, readers will discover the Focolare's essential spiritual and practical values, the various 'vocational paths' its members follow, and its effectiveness in engaging American cultural questions and values such as happiness, freedom, community, and commitment to the common good in public life."
"This marvelous new book shares the captivating stories of a variety of Americans whose lives have been transformed by an encounter with Christ, who find inspiration in the life of the great Chiara Lubich, and who share their faith and work together in community. This is an inviting, inspiring and invaluable introduction to one of the great new adventures in the Church today."
James Martin, SJ
author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
