Monday, June 10, 2024: Films to Watch -- grab your popcorn!

Monday, June 10, 202: Films to Watch -- grab your popcorn!

 On Sunday we discussed several ideas about how and when to view these films: I'll send out a survey asking with several dates for viewing  all together -- or if we prefer to watch them in small groups or as individuals we can also meet to discuss them  for an hour prior to our usual celebrations. Here are the films:

Film #1: From Steve – watch on PBS


The life of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a French priest-paleontologist-visionary, suppressed by his Jesuit order for advocating evolution is revealed in a drama of personal awakening, a search for meaning, scientific adventure, unresolved conflict with authority, and human love.



Script from the Film:

TEILHARD DE CHARDIN: Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love.

And then for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire!


ILIA DELIO, OSF: He is a Jesuit priest.... And yet he's a scientist.

NARRATOR: He was a paleontologist, dedicated with equal passion to God and to the Earth.

His new insights into evolution, create conflict with religious authorities.


JOHN F. HAUGHT: Teilhard de Chardin said, "We need a new God."


NARRATOR: His life is rich with human drama.


JOHN: From the time he was a very young child he became frightened to death of perishability. He spent almost all the rest of his life trying to tie himself to something that does not perish.



Film #2 – from Victoria: Watch on Prime Video
