How could the Son of God feel forsaken, abandoned by the Father? How could the Father abandon the Son? This is the mystery that Chiara Lubich encountered at the age of twenty-four on January 24, 1944. Her discovery was disarming: "If at that moment he suffered the most, it means that at that moment he loved the most. Let's make him the Ideal of our lives! Let's go look for him and 'console' him wherever he is suffering -- in any suffering."

Chapter after chapter unfold a great love story, increasingly far-reaching. The result will be an invitation to us to respond also to the cry that bursts from within the God-Man and rises up globally from humankind. A cry that invokes love.
