ANNUAL DAY OF CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATIVE REFLECTION

TEILHARD DE CHARDIN AND THE DAZZLING DYNAMISM OF GOD'S PLAN
Fr. Michael Holleran
June 3, 2017
9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

The Jesuit priest, scientist and mystic, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, was a unique figure in the first half of the 20th century, and therefore a controversial one.  Still, he has been an inspiration to millions, with his distinctive blend of the Greek Fathers, Jesuit spirituality, geology and paleontology.  His electrifying vision of Christ has become, like that of Raimon Panikkar, a beacon to the interspiritual and global evolutionary consciousness movement. Come and explore this exhilarating and inspiring vision!
