Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ

Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ Planetary Scientist at the Vatican Observatory talks about experiencing intimacy with the Creator through the study of astronomy.

“People sometimes ask me if I’m a scientist because of my faith, or am I a person of faith because of my science. In a wonderful interview I had one time, someone said to me, “Is it true? Are you a man of the God because of your science?” And I said, “No I don’t believe in God because of my science, I believe in my God because I’ve experienced God.” And there it was in black and white the next day in the headline “I DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD BECAUSE OF MY SCIENCE,” SAYS BROTHER CONSOLMAGNO. And I thought oh no no no no…” –Brother Guy
