(Not) Across the Universe: Under a Common Sky — 1 Comment

  1. Did you feel similarly uncomfortable on your stint in Africa? I guess that experience of being “out of your comfort zone” helps us have empathy for the immigrant/refugee(as, you know better than I, our Pope has asked us to do).
    It’s almost a shorter but steeper path of resistance with our own fellow Christians of different denominations. I recently attended a Lutheran-Catholic Joint Commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. I soon realized there were more Lutherans than Catholics there! Curiosity!?
    Maybe I’m biased because I am a cradle Catholic but I cannot help think that the curiosity of your visitors at the Vatican Observatories will alleviate any “discomfort”. And as you have made clear many times to me in your works, It’s Science AND Religion. Not “or”.
    Very good Posting, Glad you decided to release it after letting it “age”!
