About

Ever felt a little old-fashioned as a Christian? As if you were somehow out of step with today’s culture?

I once felt like that. Not any more. Not since someone introduced me to the thinking of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Now I feel ahead of the culture, a cosmic Christian. Jesus is actually out there in front, leading evolution forward. We just have to try and keep up…

My name is Hilda Geraghty, and I live in Dublin, Ireland. I have spent much of my life teaching English, French, and Religion. I have post-graduate qualifications in Spirituality, Catechetics and Applied Youth Ministry.

I’ve started this website because I would like more on-the-ground Christians to know more about Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, in my view the most significant thinker of our times. I share a series of four PowerPoints which give a comprehensve outline of his thinking, with illustrations, and a number of my articles on him, explaining his significance. My hope is that you will find his unified vision of reality as deeply inspirational as I have.

  9. I am also passionate about Teilhard de Chardin and love that you have created this site. I live in South Australia and follow Ilia Delio within a Chrstophany group here. Thank you for your work, for its clarity and depth. I hope to stay in touch.

  11. Bravo, Hilda! I found the reference to this website when I read the article you wrote on Ilia Delio’s site. You and I met many years ago – perhaps you’ll recall my name. Interesting that I fell in love with Pierre Teilhard de Chardin when I was introduced to him in my college years 1962-66 and he has been a guide for me, increasingly as I have aged and have to come to grips with needing to enter in to the “long view” which he is the Master of. Currently I am engaged in a 10 month study/prayer/faith-sharing group online in which we are using Louis Savary’s book The New Spiritual Exercises in the spirit of Teilhard de Chardin and John Haught’s book The Cosmic Vision of Teilhard de Chardin. Thank you for creating this tool to help anyone discover the treasure we have been given in T.deChardin!
