Leadership Conference of Women Religious Convention Keynote: “God is the power of the future.”

In a keynote address at the convention of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), Sister Ilia Delio said that to understand faith, “we have to think in terms of cosmology.”

Sister Delio, a visiting professor at Georgetown and follower of Teilhard de Chardin, spoke on “Religious Life on the Edge of the Universe.” She said:

God is within and up ahead — not above. God is the power of the future.

The LCWR is undergoing a Vatican-mandated period of reform after the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith found serious theological problems with the organization. Among the complaints cited by the Vatican after an investigation of the group was the heterodox presentations by speakers at LCWR conventions.
