The author explores Chiara Lubich’s mystical writings in light of the Letter to the Ephesians, focusing on the Holy Spirit, the Risen Christ, the church, and the cosmos. The Holy Spirit is seen as creating the conditions for unity between persons, in the church and throughout the cosmos, according to the pattern of the Trinity, that shows the “mothering face of God.” The Risen Christ is presented in his cosmic dimension, which brings creation to its eschatological recapitulation, a “marriage of the Uncreated and the created.” The Risen Christ within the church is presented in terms of his upward movement to its fulfilment (pleroma) in God, bringing in its recapitulation fullness of life to humankind and all creation. In addressing these topics, the author quotes both the Letter to the Ephesians and the writings of Chiara Lubich.
