Why “a world in gestation”?
“We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pain of childbirth. Not only, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.”
“… because of the exuberance of life and the longing to live; to express a passionate vision of the Earth, and to seek an answer to the questions of my activity, because I love the Universe, its energies, its secrets, its hopes and because at the same time I am consecrated to God, the only Origin, the only End.”
Teilhard de Chardin
