"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Chiara Corbella: A love story.



This is such an amazing story.

I never read her story before today, though I've seen photos and heard stories about her.  What a beautiful young woman of faith - a holy wife and mother.  I was especially moved by what she said to her husband Enrico before she died.

The day of her death, Enrico asked Chiara, if she found Christ’s promise had come true, that the cross was easy, even sweet. She smiled and said yes, it was “molto dolce.” - Story here.

We need to love one another.

  1. Chiara and Enrico first met on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje. They returned as husband an wife in April 2012. There are some beautiful images of the visit taken by Cristian Gennari at this website:
