With perfect wisdom and insight
God freely displayed the mystery
of what was always intended:
a plan for the fullness of time
to unite the entire universe through Christ.
(Ephesians 1:10 ICEL 1995 translation)
I finished using St. Paul's Letter to the Colossians for meditation and started this morning to use the closely related Ephesians. Both letters were important to Teilhard de Chardin as he developed his idea of the Cosmic Christ. He understands the Risen Christ to be present in every human and in every bit of the created universe from the very beginning of evolution to it's final unity in God.
