Wikipedia, June 6, 2019 (Focolare Movement; "focolare" is Italian for "hearth" or "family fireside"; while Focolare is the common sobriquet, its official name when approved in 1990 as an International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right was "Work of Mary"; by 1955, the summer vacation gatherings begun after 1949 took on the name "Mariapolis", a model of peace for the world under Mother Mary's patronage; in 1964 Loppiano, the first permanent Mariapolis, was built near Florence; 32 other such towns have sprung up world, some with specific emphases such as ecumenism, ecology, interreligious dialogue, multi-ethnic harmony, or inculturation; the president of the Focolare movement is always a lay woman; the movement has branched out to address a variety of groups including families, youth, and different religions)
