A living Saint's life reflected with warmth and admiration Dec 12, 1997
This book shouldn't be exposed only under the "religious books" category. It has a wider coverage by far. It reflects the daily life of a Woman that was called to transform the way we "live" religion. And lives this way. Her dialogues with other christians, other religions, "non believers" and each one that has virtues and respects basic principles leads us to the hope of a better world. And not only to the hope but to the reality of this LIFE practiced in so many places in the world through her "cittadadellas". Jim Gallagher has gone deeply into Chiara Lubich's beliefs, and has transmitted her values and her life in a way that makes us want to be "Chiara's sons", as her Buddist friends said.
