Infinite Gift of Love
The excerpts on the Eucharist from Chiara Lubich’s writings that are collected here reflect the deep union with God that she experienced as an individual and as a living member of the Body of Christ which is the Church.
Here are some selections: “The Eucharist is the bond of unity. The Eucharist is the source of unity. The Eucharist is the divine possibil-ity of being one with Christ and with one another.”
“In a tiny mountain chapel, in a majestic European cathedral, in a modern and ancient churches scattered throughout the world: flanked by a small red light, there stands the tabernacle, a divine treasure chest housing the King of kings, Eucharistic Jesus.”
“We know that unity is a grace, a freely-given gift. To obtain it, we must do our part: loving one another to the point of giving our lives for each other. Then the grace comes. But where does it arrive from? It arrives through the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the bond of unity.”
