.- The Christian Life Movement has launched a solidarity program to assist those affected by the earthquake in Chile, providing food, medicine and spiritual counseling.
The Christian Life Movement (CLM) is an international association of the faithful that was recognized by the Holy See in 1994. With members in 25 countries around the world, the CLM is the largest ecclesial movement born in the Americas.
Members of the movement have set up a website at http://mvcsolidario.org/en/ where people can donate to the cause as well as offer prayers for the Chilean people.
Luis Fernando Figari, founder of the CLM, urged the faithful to pray for the victims of the tragedy and to help with their urgent material needs. He then noted that catastrophes like those in Chile and Haiti ought to lead believers into a deeper reflection on the true meaning of human existence.
“Tragic situations such as these should lead us to meditate on the fragility of life and the eternal horizon to which the human being is called,” Figari said. “Together with our prayers, which are essential,” he continued, a concrete, fraternal love for the victims must arise from our hearts.
