The Art of Loving
In this small collection, Chiara Lubich’s simple down-to-earth language draws us into the very meaning of gospel love and challenges us to start living it. Even to her last days on this earth, in her urgency to spread the message of unity and peace to everyone, she never ceased reiterating the fundamental principles of the art of loving.
The Art of Loving is a steady guide in today’s turbulent times, a handbook for anyone who strives each day to answer the call of love, which Chiara Lubich believed to be the primary vocation of every human person and our individual and collective fullfilment.
“Chiara’s long life was a testimony to a way of loving that extends to everyone because it was so completely immersed in the love of God. It begins with people rather than principles, with relationships rather than rules. It is an art that transforms the artist.”
