This week’s trick or treating activities have left me in a self induced sugar coma, so my regular blog post has been put on hold until my insulin levels return to normal. Despite the coma, I was able to keep up on my catechism reading and here is this weeks paragraph that stands out to me.
This paragraph concisely addresses the issues of Faith vs Science:
159 Faith and science: “Though faith is above reason, there can never be any real discrepancy between faith and reason. Since the same God who reveals mysteries and infuses faith has bestowed the light of reason on the human mind, God cannot deny himself, nor can truth ever contradict truth.”37 “Consequently, methodical research in all branches of knowledge, provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things of faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are.”38 (283, 2293)
Look for regular blog posts to resume next week. I have a few in the hopper that I’ll finish once I learn how to say no to Snickers and Skittles. Have a great weekend.
