Website of the Week: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

June 9, 2024

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. –Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

A few weeks ago, New Pilgrim Path featured an  essay entitled “Teilhard: Prophet of Cosmic Hope” as its website of the week.  It attracted many requests for further information on the remarkable French priest, paleontologist, and mystic.

This week’s featured website is a full length film on “Teilhard: Scientist and Visionary”. Silenced by the Vatican in 1941 because of his views on evolution, his life is revealed in a drama of personal awakening, a search for meaning, scientific adventure, unresolved conflict with authority, cosmic hope, and celibate human love.
