TEILHARD DE CHARDIN: A World Illuminated from Within - 1881 – 1955

Fr. Pierre Teilhard De Chardin sees the whole universe contained within the burning heart of the Cosmic Christ. His ability to integrate his scientific knowledge with his belief in a God present in all creation challenges us today to enlarge our vision of our role in the universe story and how we may integrate our spirituality with the increasing discoveries of science. Teilhard, a Jesuit, lived and practiced a spirituality of “finding God in all things”.

Teilhard sees matter and all of creation as a manifestation of God’s presence, as lit from within with a fire- the fire of God’s love. He sees all of humanity as immersed in a holy Presence, the Divine Milieu.

With Teilhard we will ponder the mystery of the holiness of everyday things, of work, of prayer and of times of diminishment.

He writes: Since once again, I have neither bread nor wine, nor altar, I will raise myself beyond these symbols, up to the pure majesty of the real itself; I, your priest, will make the whole world my altar and on it I will offer you all the labours and sufferings of the world.”
