Teilhard de Chardin Quote of the Week (August 19, 2013)

Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa

“Christian faith is not fatal either to the rational method of conquering the world or to man’s confidence in himself (on the contrary, it stimulates and inspires them).  But, in conformity with the law of the integration of the natural in the supernatural, it is superimposed upon them both.  It is erected on the laboriously maintained foundation of human endeavor, to preserve it, direct, organize and transform it.”

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).

    Teilhard says so much in so few words but every time I read what he says, I find new meaning in those few words. This quote is a prime example of something that I will need to reread several times. Thanks for posting this.
