Here and Now
Meditations on Living in the Present
Chiara Lubich (about)
"Chiara Lubich's Here and Now meditations have the unifying theme of the meaning of time, the present moment, in our spiritual journey. Our time is limited, but the present moment is the way to be connected with what is unlimited and outside: eternity.”
H. Warren Willis

"In the light of her Christian faith and a lifetime of experience with her friends, Chiara Lubich gives us advice on how to use well the "here and now." If we focus on the present moment, we are planting a seed in eternity, to be enjoyed forever.”
Julian Stead, O.S.B.
Author of Saint Benedict A Rule for Beginners
