Illness, a salutary moment?
Excerpt from a conversation of Chiara to the delegates of the Focolare Movement

We will celebrate the 20th World Day of the Sick on February 11th. “How can we live illness? With the appropriate treatment, certainly, but also with an attitude of faith,” of faith in the goodness and love of God. This is what Benedict XVI said at the Angelus on Sunday, February 5th, adding that paradoxically illness can be a salutary moment.

This is what Chiara Lubich invites us to do in a talk she gave in 1999, published in A New Way, New City Press, New York 2006, pp.112-116.
