we are hearing and reading many articles, interviews, TV and web-TV shows which report words that Chiara never said, romantic words portraying her as a fearless woman, with supernatural strength. Such illusions are not good for any of us who are still on our journey toward holiness. On the contrary, it creates a distance between us and the Lord who – as the saints teach us – is close to us and caring for us.
Saints are indeed women and men like us who felt loved by the Lord and who discovered a Father with whom everything is possible. Placing their trust in Him they understood that fear never tells the truth. Let’s ask the Lord to be real witnesses of truth.
The words Chiara actually said are reported in the book and on this website, the two official resources anyone can refer to.
I want to sincerely thank you for all the love and care that you keep on giving us, and for all your prayers.
