Among the best-known writings by Chiara Lubich, this reflection is a courageous invitation to put the Word of Life for this month into practice: “A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you.” (Ez 36: 26)
We need to enlarge our heart to the measure of the heart of Jesus.
How much work that means!
Yet this is the only thing necessary. When this is done, all is done. It means loving everyone we meet, as God loves them.
And since we live in time, we must love our neighbors one by one, without holding in our heart any leftover affection for the brother or sister met a moment before.
It is the same Jesus, after all, whom we love in everyone.
