Bishop Curry quotes Teilhard at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding

The original quote was, “The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and on that day, for a second time in the history of the world, Man will have discovered fire.” It is the concluding sentence from Teilhard’s essay “The Evolution of Chastity”, one of his most important essays. You will find it in “Toward the Future”, a collection of a dozen of his essays dating from 1929 to 1954. You can find it online at
