Science & Faith
So much confusion. So much misunderstanding. And so much potential for conversion! In a letter to the Director of the Vatican Observatory, St. John Paul II eloquently noted that, “Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish.” This workshop, taught by a scientist, urges those engaged in catechesis to abandon apprehension of this arena of study. God is the Author of both the physical and moral laws, of solar systems and souls. In a balanced view of creation and our exploration of its mysteries, faithful Catholics need not fear the outcome, and can expect that the “good news” of our Savior will instead be deepened and enriched.
