This second volume is devoted to Henri de Lubac’s years of philosophical and theological studies. At Easter 1920, Henri de Lubac entered holy orders: his fundamental vocation resisted all doubts and suffering. In Jersey (1920-1923) and Mongré (1923-1924), he became passionately interested in philosophy and read the great authors (Plato, Thomas Aquinas, Blondel, Rousselot, Gabriel Marcel), writing elaborate dissertations. At Ore Place (Hastings) and in Lyon-Fourvière (1924-1928), he set down, with the approval of Father J. Huby, his essential ideas about the Supernatural, including that of its gratuitous nature. Propitious friendships were made with young people of his generation, which proved to be lasting. The particularly warm friendship with Robert Hamel was essential (Father Chantraine reveals their correspondence, which shows the strong bond between the two men); there were more intellectual friendships also with Yves de Montcheuil and Gaston Fessard; or, some examples of the generation before, Valensin and Teilhard de Chardin. These relations highlight one of the future cardinal’s characteristics: a fidelity that stands up to time and ordeals. In this book, we see the birth of a mind and a work that were structured right from the beginning, based on a global reflection that always linked theology and philosophy, and which Fr. Balthasar described as possessing ‘organic cohesion’. This book reveals Henri de Lubac as a sensitive, suffering man whose constant desire was to be useful to the Church.
