Chiara Lubich’s spirituality is one to be embodied in everyday life and involves all aspects of human life. Universal gospel values are respectfully proposed in a distinctive communitarian perspective. It is a personal spirituality, which is not individual but rather communitarian, because union with God is achieved through and together with our brothers and sisters. Perhaps, precisely because of this distinctive communitarian aspect, those who live this spirituality feel they are in solidarity with each other and, in a certain way, united, even if motivated by different human, ethical and religious values.
Chiara’s spirituality expresses multiple perspectives of relationship: with God, with our neighbours and with history. It is a pathway of shared experience, which has initiated and sustained forms of dialogue among members of the Catholic Church and with other charismatic realities, with Christians of various Churches and ecclesial communities, with followers of other religions, and also with people who, while not referring to a religious belief, desire to contribute to bringing the human family together in fraternity.
