This exceptional work explores the concept expressed by Chiara that the Lord doesn’t ask us for an individual holiness, but for a communitarian holiness in which each person must help their neighbour to become a saint. This collective way of sanctity is explored on the thematic elements of John 17: 11b-19.
Chiara Lubich’s Communitarian Way to Holiness
in the Light of John 17:11b-19
Cabetas offers a deep meditation on the meaning of John 17 that reflects her own spiritual journey. Combining contemporary biblical scholarship with the spiritual reflections of Chiara Lubich, she points out that when Jesus sanctifies his disciples in the truth, this sanctity is modelled on the Trinitarian life. Sanctity does not mean withdrawal from the world. On the contrary it means being united in mutual love in Jesus’ name and in so doing, bearing witness to the world that unity among us is possible. Cabetas, as a follower of Chiara Lubich’s charism of unity, helps us penetrate John 17 with a freshness and attractiveness needed for our modern times.
