What a wonderful surprise it was this morning to hear the discussion about Teilhard De Chadin ! ! I was driving up to Maine and the discussion enriched the trip for me A quote in The Pilot, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Boston,was my introduction to this learned and engaging philosopher.I found his books and added them to to my library for constant reference and enlightenment. Ever since then I use excerpts from his writings when I speak to groups Only once has a listener responded with a knowledge of Teilhard.I dare say that today there would would be no mention of this genius philosopher in The Pilot given the super conservative turn of the recent and current Church leadership. " A passionate longing to grow,to be is what we need. There is no room for the pessimists, the weary , the immobilizes,the sad of heart. Life is change. Life is movement." This is off the top of my head so may not be a perfect quote But, this is the essence of the quote that caught my attention many years ago.. .
