Soul Brothers? – St Paul and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ
Why would one dare to put a name beside that of St. Paul? – Other than that of St. Peter, of course. But that is what I am daring to do, if only to make people think about what is at stake for the Church in the modern world if it doesn’t have a St. Paul figure to do for it what he once did for a fledgling Christianity. The magnitude of the cultural challenge facing Paul in the Roman Empire of the first century is comparable to that facing the Church in the modern world, which is why the comparison springs to mind.
