The British Teilhard Association promotes the work and vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - a vision of love, of fire, of convergence, of a world in evolution energised by spirit, a vision of dynamism and direction - of a universe in movement towards its ultimate consummation or completion in a 'universal cosmic centre' or 'centre of centres'.

  • Where are we heading?

NEWS - SATURDAY 20 MAY 2017
Teilhard de Chardin provided one of the readings at the wedding of James Matthews to Pippa Middleton, sister of the Duchess of Cambridge. The reading was actually a blend of two quotes - “Love is an adventure and a conquest… etc.” was a quote from Human Energy, Collins 1969, p.74.
“Put your faith in the spirit which dwells between the two of you… etc.” was a quote from Teilhard’s address at the wedding of Odette Bacot and Jean Teilhard d’Eyry, 14 June 1928, in The Heart of Matter, Collins 1978, p.137.


THIS MONTH'S SUGGESTED TITLE
Teilhard's Human Energy, Collins 1969, as quoted at Pippa Middleton's wedding (see above). The book is a collection of six essays on various topics, such as The Significance and Positive Value of Suffering and The Spirit of the Earth. "Love is an adventure" was taken from the essay Sketch of a Personalistic Universe.

 

SHOULD TEILHARD BE DECLARED A DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH?
Visitors may be interested in a petition to have Teilhard de Chardin declared a Doctor of the Church. The petition originated with members of the Teilhard-inspired Cosmos and Creation conferences at Loyola University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Please feel free to circulate the link to anyone you think would support this effort.
