The day thou gavest, Lord, is nowhere near ended, though it has been travelling steadily onwards since that first grey moment when you gave it leave.

"Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay,
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way
to something unknown,
something new.

Teilhard de ChardinMay 1st was the birthday in 1889 of Pierre Teilhard deChardin, that is 124 years ago today.

His life sparkles with scholarship and faith. Ordained in 1930 as a priest in the Society of Jesus, his life experience spanned the scientific world and his Christian belief. In 1950 he was named to the French Academy of Sciences for his ground-breaking work in palaeontology whilst at the same time his writings incurred the displeasure of Rome. He was for many years, up to his death in 1955, forbidden to publish his writings or lecture in Catholic Institutes. He was effectively silenced. But he continued to write.

Unfortunately this site along with others on the same server were hacked. A vulnerability in other sites was found. I have had to roll back the site to the 18th April 2013 for a clean install. If you registered on this site on or after the 18th April you will need to register again. My apologies but out of my control and in the hands of the cyber terrorists ! Pray for them, as I have done !!!
