At the Origins of a New Spirituality
by Chiara Lubich
What a lovely and fascinating collection of letters written by a young Chiara Lubich to the early followers of the Focolare Movement. In these we see glimpses of the mystic spirit and charism that so embued her devotion and work. Indeed we see more than glimpses of the mystic in these letters because the tone and words are filled with the devotion and passion of a mystic, the faith of the heart driven by the spirit to see potential and wonder. These are lovely letters that work as devotions or meditations as well as showing how Focolare grew and developed. Certainly this book is a must for anyone involved in Focolare or for those wanting to understand Chiara better.
