From the collection Hearts on Fire, this prayer by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin for the fourth week of the Spiritual Exercises:

“Glorious Christ,
you whose divine influence is active
at the very heart of matter,
and at the dazzling center
where the innumerable fibres of the multiple meet:
you whose power is as implacable as the world
and as warm as life,
you whose forehead is of the whiteness of snow,
whose eyes are of fire,
and whose feet are brighter than molten gold;
you whose hands imprison the stars;
you are the first and the last,
the living and the dead and the risen again;
it is to you to whom our being cries out
a desire as vast as the universe:
In truth you are our Lord and our God! Amen.”
