Making All Things New: Tracing the Thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Winter/Spring 2022

The twentieth century Jesuit scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin believed that our salvation lies in becoming one with the universe. He saw divine incarnational energy at the heart of evolution and the birthing of Christ (which he called Christogenesis) as the emerging personal union of God, human, and cosmos. Teilhard’s thought offers a fascinating reunion of science and religion, which has profound implications for how we see ourselves and the purpose and meaning of our lives. Ilia Delio will be our guide. Canon Maxwell will be using her book “Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology, Consciousness” (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2015) as the basis for our class discussions and Sister Delio is also scheduled to be at the Cathedral in person on Saturday, April 23, 2022, to deliver a talk she has titled “Christifying the Universe.” Delio’s book and tickets to her talk are available in the Cathedral Book Store. Old Fashioned Sunday School returns this Sunday January 23, at 10:10 a.m. in Child Hall and here online.
