THE MYSTICISM OF TEILHARD DE CHARDIN
Led by Barbara Leonhard, OSF
Teilhard de Chardin, SJ, was one of the great 20th century mystics. Far ahead of his time, he found himself immersed in a profound experience of the sacredness of all life. His life story and his writings can inspire us to be attentive to the divine energy at work within us and in the universe.
