Christianity is not, as it is sometimes presented and sometimes practiced, an additional burden of observances and obligations to weigh down and increase the already heavy load, or to multiply the already paralyzing ties of our life in society.  It is, in fact, a soul of immense power which bestows significance, beauty and a new lightness on what we are already doing.  Pierre Teihard de Chardin, LE MILIEU DIVIN
