When our Love is Charity
This second volume of spiritual writings binds together three of Chiara Lubich's previous works: When Our Love is Charity which places particular emphasis on mutual love as expressed by Jesus in his new commandment; Jesus in Our Midst focusing on the spiritual presence of Christ in the community; and When Did We See You, Lord? which deals with the need to discover God in our fellow human beings. It is full of formative insights that can help every Christian grow in their love of God and neighbor.
"The author draws on some of the best elements of the Catholic tradition to speak a credible word for the world today. The text actually is a compilation of three independent works with the first being the books title, When Our Love is Charity. The other two sections are Jesus in Our Midst and When Did We See You, Lord?”
"In these words, Chiara Lubich offers a simple antidote to the highly contagious malaise of the ego(t)ism symptomatic of the 1970s. By suggesting that people take a good look outside themselves to the life of Christ and His way of charity and to the presence of Jesus in our neighbor and our bond of love with all mankind, Lubich attempts to bolster the Christian community... Lubich's writing is always inspiring.”
