5-Day Program: Images of God in Teilhard and Merton


Presenter: Kathleen Duffy, SSJ Today, when so much of the evolutionary process is being explained from a materialist view, one of the most challenging questions for believers is how to envision the role of the Divine in the ongoing creation. Contemporary mystics have described powerful images that address this dilemma. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin speaks eloquently of the Cosmic Christ hinted at in Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians (1:9-10 and 4:9-10). Thomas Merton sings the praises of Divine Wisdom (Prov. 8:22-36) in his poem entitled "Hagai Sophia." Others see the Divine as fountain fullness and the World as a revelation of the Divine. During this program, we will explore these images, consider their relevance as we address the concerns of today’s world, and contemplate the presence of Divine Love at the heart of our ever-expanding Cosmos. 5-Day Program, in-person only
