A New Way: The Spirituality of Unity

Free sample

The history of spirituality has never seen a way to God like this one. Till now all forms of spiritual growth have focused on the individualÂ’s discovery of the Beauty of Beauties, the God who fascinates the human heart. And they have striven to find ways in which individuals can be transformed, ways in which they can enter into the ultimate experience.
In essence none of this disappears. But the spirituality that Chiara Lubich and her companions have discovered is a “new way” in which people go to God not primarily as individuals, but together. It is a “spirituality of communion,” as described by John Paul II. No longer is the spiritual life about withdrawing from other people, nor just about serving them. It is about living with them in unity, growing together in God.

“What do I wish for this book? That it may become nourishment for the lives of many and that it may contribute to making the Church beautiful, so that for the salvation of the world and for the glory of God the Church may live among men and women, as a sign of and a pointer towards happiness.”

Cardinal Miloslav Vlk
Archbishop of Prague
