Description

Chiara Lubich is now being called a great Catholic mystic of our times. Here we encounter this mystical side of Chiara who is also the bearer of a charism, a gift from the Holy Spirit in response to the special needs of the Church and of the world. Chiara’s charism is unity, the unity that Jesus asked for us from his Father: ‘so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one’ (Jn 17:22-23).

Chiara saw God’s love in everyone and everything. The light of this discovery enveloped her, and she felt like she was at the centre of the Father’s love. Very quickly, young women and others were drawn to Chiara by the way she presented the Christian life as a response to God’s love, which was shown to her in Jesus, most especially in his abandonment and death on the cross.

In these letters, Chiara communicates her burning desire that ‘Love be loved,’ and that ‘all the world be set ablaze by the fire of Love.’ Her words are full of fervour, but also simplicity and practical common sense.
