Heaven on Earth
Heaven on Earth is an inspiring collection of meditations drawn from the writings of Chiara Lubich over the past fifty years. This beautiful medley of reflections, all newly translated and many available for the first time in English, provides a striking, panoramic view of her gospel-based spirituality, centered around Jesus' last testament, "that all may be one" (Jn 17:21).
"It is a singular pleasure for me to introduce these writings to those in the English speaking world who may not be familiar with this exceptional woman and her work... In these pages we are invited to drink from the spiritual sources which have nourished her own life and the lives of millions of others.”

"In Heaven on Earth, Chiara Lubich invites us to enter her powerful yet simple life with God so that our encounter with him can be a 'divine adventure' as well.”
