Cosmic Temple

I just finished a brief book about Teilhard de Chardin.  One of his convictions was that our notion of God, and of Jesus, and of Christianity must be greatly expanded to meet the reality.  In John's Gospel and in some of Paul's letters he finds support for his scientific reflection on evolution.
His notion of the Cosmic Christ reminded me of John's comment that I referred to in Monday's post, "Actually he was talking about the temple of his body (2:21)."  Once Jesus rises from the dead, there is no limit to his risen body.  It expands to include all of creation from beginning of time to the end.  The Risen Jesus becomes the temple where God comes to us and we go to God.
