Pierre Teilhard de Chardin the Mystic: Exploring the Five Circles of the Divine Milieu

Presenter: Sr. Ruth Droege, OP, Ph.D.

By exploring the five circles of the Mystical Milieu, we come to understand that “by means of all created things, the divine assails us, penetrates us, and molds us…this world which we are prone to treat with boredom and disrespect…is, in truth, a holy place, and we sis did not know it…come, let us adore.” (The Divine Milieu, p. 112)
