Kenotic Love And True Personhood: A Recorded Conversation

Audio recording with Ilia Delio and Cynthia Bourgeault

True love is fecundity, it’s generation, it’s outward moving — and at the same time it’s receptivity — we make space for the other, and allow that other to enter our world.

~ Ilia Delio

You don’t create oneness by eliminating diversity. You create oneness by increasing it within a flexible unity.

~ Cynthia Bourgeault

Ilia Delio and Cynthia Bourgeault enter into an engaging and lively conversation illuminating points brought forward in the vision and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and sharing some of their own related life experiences that support those views. Topics of their dialogue include the transformational power of kenotic and sacrificial love, the centrality of ‘personhood’ in our relationship to God, and the co-creative impact of human choices and action on the unfolding future toward Omega. The dialogue starts with Cynthia asking Ilia to elaborate on Teilhard’s premise of love as a universal force of attraction.

I have been watching Ilia's talks and reading her writings quite often. Last year I interviewed Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim in Beijing while they were here for an international conference. In that interview we also talked a lot about Ilia's great works not only through the Christogenesis Center, but also though her teaching and writing. One young student name Liu Zheng is planning to do a fellowship with Ilia when the Covid-19 pandemic is over; he has been in touch with me very often sharing his ideas. Hope to be able to communicate and interview Ilia as well in the not distant future!
