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)

She first worked in the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) in her home province of Leyte in 1997. Just last June 20, 2014, she was awarded the prestigious Aquino Fellowship Award by the US government in the US Embassy in Manila. She is currently the Assistant City Prosecutor at the Department of Justice in Cebu City.

PLAIN TALK

 



 

“Every man is one of a kind and must develop his uniqueness. However, we often say that we must be more like Jesus, another Francis, or another Mary etc. Do we not thus cancel the uniqueness of each person with this expression?”

“I argue with my husband often because I see that he is attached to his parents. What should I do?”
