From Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Writings in Time of War
“Then, it is really true, Lord? By helping the spread of science and freedom, I can increase the density of the divine atmosphere in which it is always my one desire to be immersed. By laying hold to the Earth I enable myself to cling closely to you…”.

“Since first, Lord, you said, ‘This is my body,” not only the bread of the altar but (to some degree) everything in the universe that nourishes the soul for the life of Spirit and Grace has become yours and has become divine- it is divinized, divinizing, and divinizable. Every presence makes me feel that you are near me; every touch is the touch of your hand; every necessity transmits to me a pulsation of your will.”
