A journey of prayer with Chiara Lubich


If someone out of impatience neglects the presence of God in their soul  – even if they may seem to have fraternal charity – it is a frivolous, light, superficial and dangerous charity because it is not built on Rock: it is therefore not charity.

Ho trovato l’amore is a book just released in Italian by Città Nuova Publishing House, following the French edition of “Prier 15 jours avec Chiara Lubich.”  The author, Florence Gillet, a theologian, has been part of Chiara Lubich’s personal secretariat since 1998.
