Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, “The Divine Milieu”

“Thus every man, in the course of his life, must not only show himself obedient and docile. By his fidelity he must build– starting with the most natural territory of his own self– a work, an opus, into which something enters from all the elements of the earth. He makes his own soul throughout all his earthly days; and at the same time he collaborates in another work, in another opus, which infinitely transcends, while at the same time it narrowly determines, the perspectives of his individual achievement: the completing of the world…in action I adhere to the creative power of God; I coincide with it; I become not only its instrument but its living extension.”
