Rocca di Papa, December 6, 1973*

Last summer was a rather special one because of the suffering that God had planned for me personally and as a consequence- because of unity- for some who were with me.
We have always said that suffering and love must be kept secret, whereas the light that comes from our experience must be given.

I believe that what has happened in these past months is of fundamental importance for us. In fact, I feel that God wanted to highlight a part of His Gospel which we had not yet considered in depth.

* This text is the fruit of a spritual experience lived out by Chiara Lubichin 1973, when, physically struck by a very painful herniated disc and spiritually struck by other sufferings, she began to deepen on a new dimension of the Gospel. The text is in conversation form as it was originally addressed to some delegates of the Movement and it was kept that way.
