In this collection of spiritual reflections Chiara Lubich explores man’s aspiration to share in the life of God. The challenge of the Gospel is clear-cut: let your yes be yes and your no, no … he who is not with me is against me. Whether reviewing the life of a great saint such as Catherine of Siena or of the Indian spiritual leader Vinhoba Bhave, Chiara Lubich underlines that what counts is the quality of life as it is lived in each moment.
The way to build up the new man is to live the present moment to the full. Christians must be developed Christians’ with a deep love for the Church as their family and with a deep feeling of solidarity with all men in all ages. Chiara Lubich was awarded the 1977 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
