Prayer: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

The greater humanity becomes, the more humanity becomes united, with consciousness of, and master of, its potentialities, the more beautiful creation will be, the more perfect adoration will become, and the more Christ will find, for mystical extensions, a body worthy of resurrection…. The star for which the world is waiting…. Is necessarily Christ himself, in whom we hope.

The universal Christ… is none other than the authentic expression of Christ of the gospel. Christ, renewed, it is true, by contact with the modern world, but at the same time, Christ becomes even greater in order still to remain the same Christ.
