Item Description...
Overview
Theologians and leaders from many Churches and from the major world religions, including the last four popes, have acknowledged the spiritual gifts poured forth through Chiara Lubich as unique in Christian history. Her "spirituality of unity" has the ultimate goal of bringing about on earth the unity for which Jesus prayed to his Father: "May they all be one" (John 17:21). This volume gathers her essential writings and presents them in a systematic fashion for the first time. It is a "summa" of the charism of unity, which will lead readers to ponder, understand and experience a spirituality particularly suited to the era in which we live.

Publishers Description
Theologians and leaders from many Churches and from the major world religions, including the last four popes, have acknowledged as unique in Christian history the spiritual gifts poured forth through Chiara Lubich. Her spirituality of unity has the ultimate goal of contributing to the unity for which Jesus prayed to his Father: May they all be one (Jn 17:21). This volume gathers her essential writings and for the first time presents them in a systematic fashion. It is a summa of the charism of unity, which will lead readers to ponder, understand and experience a spirituality particularly suited to the era in which we live. The history of the Church has seen many radicalisms of love ... that of Francis of Assisi, of Ignatius of Loyola. There is also Chiaras radicalism ... which seeks to make this love victorious in every circumstance. Pope John Paul II

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A prophetic and ecumenical view of the world....  Nov 18, 2008
Essential Writings: Spirituality Dialogue Cultures Chiara Lubich is probably one of the most significant religious figures of our times. Her Catholic spirituality of unity has given birth to a worldwide movement of several million people. She contributed to a major renewal in the Catholic Church, unity among Christians and dialogue among members of the world's religions. Only Mother Teresa could match Chiara Lubich's influence as a woman in the Vatican. But where the charismatic nun founded traditional male and female religious orders, aimed at charitable works, Chiara built one of the pioneering lay movements in the Church, a worldwide organization committed to social justice and ecumenism.
Millions of people around the world follow her teachings, her example and the lifestyle of unity she promoted for all nations.
And yet, her name remains almost unknown in the Catholic Church at large.
A spiritual leader, mystic but living in the world, for the world and with the world, Chiara was,until her death in early 2008, the president of the Focolare Movement she founded after WW2. Many of her innovations - a reassessment of the importance of laity, a return to Scripture, a joyful liturgy, an emphasis on love and unity with "Jesus in our midst" - are simply prophetic.
This book is a selection of Chiara's spiritual writings.She brings hope and unity between and among people of all faiths and denominations - and with those of no faith at all.
This charism is based on Jesus' call and final testament: "May they all be one". It is also a call to peace and reconciliation. The style is joyful and poetic, easy to read for all. She talks directly, in practical words, to men and women, to the young and not so young. She is addressing specific cultures and worlds: the media, the arts, politics and business.
Her "Essential Writings" are showing us how the "Good News" of the Gospel can transform our lives and our world. A reference book for all of us,
to better understand what's life is all about...
