The Night School with Teilhard de Chardin, Part II
Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ (1881-1955) was a Frenchman, Jesuit priest, geologist and paleontologist, and above all a mystic. At the center of his mysticism was a vision of how God is intensely alive and motivated with majestic purpose to bring all created things (not just human beings) into conscious unity. His stunningly beautiful vision of the unstoppable glory of God was given him during the four years that he served as a stretcher-bearer to soldiers fighting in the trenches of World War I.
