Plenitude of Action (Teilhard)


May the time come when men, having been awakened to a sense of the close bond linking all the movements of this world in the single, all-embracing work of the Incarnation, shall be unable to give themselves to any one of the their tasks without illuminating it with the clear vision that their work – however elementary it may be – is received and put to good use by a Center of the universe. When that comes to pass, there will be little to separate life in the cloister from the life of the world. And only then will the action of the children of heaven have attained the intended plenitude of its humanity.

— Teilhard de Chardin, The Divine Milieu
