… who advocates a cosmological rethink of religion (which is good because she, unlike some, does not pretend that this is just another flavour of the same brand):
Sister Ilia Delio discusses an ‘evolutionary’ approach with the women religious [nuns] gathered in Orlando for the group’s 2013 annual assembly.
Quoting [Teilhard] de Chardin, she said Christianity is a religion of evolution. “Gospel life is now life. God is the God of the now.”
“We are on the cusp of an evolutionary breakthrough — one that requires our conscious participation as co-creative agents of love, midwives of the new creation,” Sister Ilia stated.
“Nothing is more awesome than to give birth to God,” she said.
Doubtless, but in traditional Catholic Christianity, it is not for every woman to do that. 😉
Incidentally, the religious orders who listen to this stuff are mostly evolving toward extinction.
I’m told the newer, dynamic ones usually don’t have time for it. Too many real life needs to meet in the community. – O’Leary for News
