The Economy of Giving
By Chiara Lubich
From "Economy of Communion - a new culture" N.31 - May 2010
"Unlike the consumer economy
based on a culture of having,
the Economy of Communion
is the economy of giving.
This could seem difficult,
But it is not, because the human person,
made in the image of God who is love,
precisely in loving, in giving.
This need to love lies in the deepest core
of our being, whether we are believers
And in this affirmation,
supported by our experience,
is where lies the hope of the universal spread
of the economy of communion."
