Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican observatory, says, “It (science) always makes my faith stronger because it makes my relationship with the Creator much richer. When I go to pray, the God I encounter in prayer I compare with the God I encounter in creation. And see it is the same God.”
The Vatican Observatory is hosting a major May 9-12 conference on “Black Holes, Gravitational Waves and Space-Time Singularities,” underlining the point that science and religion can actually get along. The director of the observatory says it might help if more scientists who are believers “came out,” sharing their faith.
Could there be other planets that harbor life? Is it possible that there might be multiple universes? What is the origin of the cosmos? Catholic and non-Catholic scientists from all over the world are meeting in Chicago for a conference of the Society of Catholic Scientists to focus on the answers to these big questions.
