Teilhard de Chardin Quote of the Week (December 15, 2014): Suffering as a Means to Union with God

Teilhard de Chardin

Monkey Head Nebula

“I like to think that gradually, instead of being weighted down by your external cares, you’ll find yourself to some extent carried by them towards God, by the need you feel, in your love, to do something for him and your inability to do anything worth while except in close union with Him. Prayer and action should nourish one another — that goes without saying.” (emphasis in original)

–– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The Making of a Mind; Letters from a Soldier-Priest (p. 206)
