Teilhard de Chardin Quote of the Week (May 6): Harnessing the Energies of Love

teilhard_fire

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”

(“The Evolution of Chastity,” in Toward the Future, 1936, XI, 86-87)

The above is one of my favorite quotes, and I use it as background for my Twitter image.  The quote echos with Johannian theology of God, especially 1 John 4:7-21.

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).
