A Second Discovery of Fire

Quote of the Day:

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”

- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. (1881 - 1955), as quoted earlier this month on the funeral prayer card of Eunice Kennedy Shriver (1921 - 2009).

An aside: Teilhard de Chardin has recently been the subject of posts by John Allen, Fran and A Concord Pastor.
