Sister Ilia Delio, OSF, PhD

The environmental crisis poses a real danger to the future of planetary life. Our unhealthy consumer lifestyle, based on old philosophical principles, does not have a sufficient rationale for the radical change that is needed. Drawing on the work of French Jesuit, scientist, and theologian Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Sister Ilia reframes the question within the process of evolution, and offers new directives to bring healing to Earth.

Sister Ilia, a Franciscan Sister of Washington, D.C., specializes in the area of science and religion, with a focus on ways that evolution, physics, and neuroscience influence theology.
