Is Your God Too Small?

The Lay Centre

at 5:30 pm

Is Your God Too Small?

Autumn conference
Speaker: Br Guy J. Consolmagno, SJ, director of the Vatican Observatory and president of the Vatican Observatory Foundation

 

Humanity’s robots have visited every planet in the solar system; and fifty years ago humans even walked on the moon. The contrast between “the world” and “the cosmos” is becoming blurred, even as we are learning just how big the cosmos is. We need to understand that all those other planets are real places, part of the same universe created by God and redeemed by the Incarnation. This presents a glorious opportunity for us to come to grips with what it means to be a creature, and what it means to be redeemed… and to truly appreciate the words of the Psalmist:
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honour.”

 

Event followed by a reception.
