…I felt… the most I could do was let go. Instead, now I feel enfolded in a marvelous plan of God, which is slowly being unveiled to me. I suffered a lot, but my soul was singing! I have nothing left, but I still have my heart, and with that I can always love. -Bl. Chiara Luce Badano
She died at 18 in 1990 and is the first member of “Generation X” to be beatified. These quotes of Bl. Chiara Luce reflect her profound sense of redemptive suffering, as well as her hope in uniting suffering to Christ’s on the Cross and the salvation He gives us through His death and resurrection.
