Vatican Astronomer: Mars Discoveries May Reveal God’s Personality

Last edited 30th September 2015

A Vatican astronomer said the latest discovery of flowing liquid water on the surface of Mars was exciting. “You can see the traces of the rivers changing over the course of a Martian year. So we are not talking about water that was there a long time ago or water that is frozen under the surface, but actual liquid water on the surface,” Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, told Vatican Radio on Tuesday.

Perpetual Solitude in “Frankenstein”

Last edited 17th May 2015

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein offers a warning to its readers by presenting a perversion of the creation story in Genesis. By the end of the novel, Victor Frankenstein’s egotistical aspiration to cause life has brought about destruction, solitude, death, and ultimately a permanent exclusion from human community, for both himself and his creature. This story and its consequences align precisely with and can be illuminated by John Paul II’s diagnosis of what he calls the “civilization of death” in his Letter to Families.

Unfortunately, that is what happened at Disneyland in California, starting back in December. The measles virus, likely carried by a tourist from a foreign country, started a chain of infections that has now reached at least 87 people in seven states and Mexico. The outbreak has also resurfaced arguments surrounding the vaccination of children.
