"The day will come when, after harnessing space,
the winds, the tides, and gravitation,
we shall harness for God the energies of love.
And then, on that day, for the second time in the history of the
world, we shall have discovered fire."
"The conclusion is always the same:
Love is the most powerful
and still the most unknown energy of the world"
- Teilhard de Chardin
When all the good is gathered up,
when all the pain is gathered, too,
then will an energy be born
to spark a world alight and new!
When all the spirit of the good
absorbs our suffering and fears,
then will an energy arrive
that grows creation out of tears.
Within a chemistry of change,
within the heart of all that beats
will be the energy of love
that nothing quenches or defeats.
Where all the elements combine
to fire new truth, to foster joy,
set loose that energy of love
to be in us God's strong alloy!
When goodness takes the place of gold,
when pain of war, of word and fist
becomes the energy of hope,
then peace and justice will have kissed.
