An evening with Teilhard de Chardin



Calgary, Canada

Led by Sr. Ita Connery, fcJ

This evening on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ is titled Living in the Divine Milieu and is part of a series on male mystics. It will take place at the FCJ Centre in Calgary. We will reflect on some passages from Teilhard’s writings. Questions such as:

  • What is meant by the “Divine Milieu?”
  • What is the place of matter in our spirituality?
  • How can our lives contribute to God’s dream for our world?
  • How can we participate in the ongoing evolution of the universe?
  • How can a life of action lead us to a life of communion with God and others?
  • What vision of Christ sustains us in our dreams and hopes as well as our diminishments and sufferings?

A Prayer of Teilhard: Jesus, Saviour of human activity to which you have given meaning, Saviour of human suffering to which you have given living value, be also the Saviour of human unity; compel us to discard our pettiness and to venture forth resting upon you, into the uncharted ocean of charity.
