Chiara Lubich is a significant figure in the development of spirituality.

They do not point to the transformation only of individuals but of persons in relationship, and hence of the whole of society. This latest addition to the “99 Words to Live By” series presents a mere sip of her writings, but nonetheless they give the essence of her message, offering an overview of the main points of her work, which has inspired millions throughout every country in the world.

“Chiara and I are friends; there is nothing that separates us, we are one. What she teaches are the same things that the Gospel says, and both of us are trying to put it into practice.”

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“This woman is transparent like an open page of the gospel…. By means of women like Chiara, God gives an incomparable instrument of unity to us Christians.”

Brother Roger Schutz of Taizé
