In a world in which social communication networks are multiplying out of all proportion, paradoxically there seems to be an ever-increasing sense of isolation and loneliness. In this context, one wonders about the deeper meaning of life. Where do we find true happiness?
On the one hand, society exalts individualism and self-determination, and, on the other hand, people yearn for authentic and profound relationships. Chiara Lubich’s answer in this book is that

Chiara Lubich (1920-2008) was the founder of the Focolare Movement and her gospelbased spirituality has inspired millions. She is an internationally renowned religious writer and has published over thirty books in dozens of languages with more than one million copies sold. The movement to which she gave birth stands at the forefront of ecumenical and interreligious dialogue
