After exploring the evolutionary and integrative vision of the Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin regarding Christianity and spirituality in an introductory PowerPoint presentation on Friday evening, Teilhard expert Louis Savary will introduce participants to Teilhard's special insights on an evolutionary approach to understanding the Eucharist, suffering, compassion and the Mass. The workshop will touch upon questions such as: Who is the Christ on the altar after the consecration at Mass today? How can one's human suffering be transformed into energy to help build the Body of Christ? What would an evolutionary view of compassion involve? How does ecology fit into Teilhard's ideas? In evolutionary terms, what does it mean to say in the Lord's Prayer: "Thy will be done on Earth"? How did Teilhard see Mass being celebrated on the altar of the world? There will be question and answer periods as well as workshop activities in solitude and small groups.

Louis M. Savary, Ph.D., S.T.D., has been lecturing and teaching on Teilhard's spirituality for over thirty years. He is most known for his ability to explain Teilhard to a popular audience. His books, The Divine Milieu Explained and The New Spiritual Exercises in the Spirit of Teilhard de Chardin have been widely acclaimed. Most recently, co-authored with his wife, Patricia Berne, Ph.D., is their book on discerning your life's purpose using Teilhard's evolutionary ideas, Why Did God Make Me?
