Meditations

by Chiara Lubich


The most common experience when reading these Meditations is that they open up a dialogue with the Eternal, and the reader finds a new logic, the heavenly way of reasoning, begins to filter into the soul. We feel that we become better, and we discover a yearning, almost a homesickness, for heaven. And that turns us to face our everyday life, with its everyday struggles and all our everyday neighbours, with renewed resolution. We wish to care for others in the most realistic and down-to-earth way possible. Indeed, we feel enabled to take part in fulfilling the driving theme in the Meditations, the prayer with which Jesus summed up his life-work, uttered to his Father the night before he died: ‘May they all be one.’ (John 17:21)

PLAIN TALK

 



 

“For some time now, I can no longer tolerate my husband’s weaknesses. His defects are always the same, and mine are too, but while I try my best to change my habit of saying things that may hurt him, he’s a lazy person who never gives a damn about changing his ways?”

“We discovered that our boys, whom we tried to raise in the best way possible, spend time on the internet viewing pornographic images and material. We are definitely worried as parents!”

 
 



 

ISSUES

 
  This coming 2021, we shall be celebrating the 500th year of the arrival of Christianity in the Philippines. In preparation for this event, the Church in the Philippines has planned nine years of intensive evangelization, with a theme for every year. For the year 2013, we celebrated the Year of Faith provided by then Pope Benedict XVI. The Year 2014 is the YEAR OF THE LAITY.
