God himself will always be with them

January 1999

Commetary on the Word of Life: “God himself will always be with them” (see Rev. 21:3).

In January, in many parts of the world, Christians celebrate their common faith together with special prayers and meetings. The theme chosen for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is taken from the Book of Revelations. Let’s read the whole excerpt:

Behold, the dwelling of God is with men.
He will dwell with them
And they shall be his people,
And God himself will be with them;
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
And death shall be no more,
Neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more,
For the former things have passed away.

Let’s run to Love!

A letter from June 1944

Chiara LubichMy little sister in the immense Love of God!

Listen, I beg you, listen to the voice of this little heart!
You have been blinded with me by the luminous blaze of an Ideal that is greater than all and sums up all: the infinite Love of God!

O, my little sister! He is the one, He is my God, your God, who has bound us together with a bond stronger than death, because it will never decay, one like the spirit, immense, infinite, delicate, strong, immortal like the Love of God!

Mary, the Flower of Humanity

The All-Beautiful

Guardando la natura sembra che Gesù dia il suo comandamento nuovo anche ad essa.
When we look at nature, it seems that Jesus gives it his new commandment too.
I observed two plants and I thought about pollination. Before this happens the plants grow upward, as if they were loving God with all their being. Then they unite, almost as if they were loving one another as the Persons of the Trinity love one another. From two they become one. They love one another to the point of abandonment, to the point of losing their personalities, so to speak, like Jesus in his forsakenness.

Then from the flower that blossoms, a fruit is born and life, therefore, continues. It is like God’s eternal Life imprinted in nature. The Old and the New Testaments form a single tree.

Its flowering happened in the fullness of time, and its only flower was Mary.
