QuotationCommonweal has sent me the De Lubac book on Teilhard to review. I think it will move Teilhard a few blocks closer to the Chancery Office and get him more established than he already now is. It is good at showing that what the Chancery Office looks for is all right there and everything is cozy. Teilhard really loves the exercises of St. Ignatius, etc. And I can believe that he did. But this is not after all a very inspiring book and it makes Teilhard look quite unrevolutionary. I don't know if that is the best thing for Teilhard or for the Church.
