By Katie O’BrienCatholic News AgencyThe Holy Spirit of Jesus is so strong, the Holy Spirit is so powerful, that He can bring down the heavens and send His angels to fight against the devil.
In this context, the word “blessed” can be applied to God as well as to science, with its belief that God’s gifts of science are more powerful than those of the Devil.
As for religion, it’s hard to find a time when the word does not appear in a Catholic prayer.
A prayer in the Latin language, “I bless you, O God,” reads, “Blessing and glory to You for making me a human being, and for giving me knowledge of you, Your Word and Your Truth, and Your will for me.”
But what about science?
Is the Holy One really “bountiful” when He sends His angels into battle against the demons, and to protect us from disease and death?
“There is a reason why people say that the Holy Ghost can bless science,” said Father Anthony Mancuso, an associate professor of Christian studies at New York University.
“The Holy Ghost is a powerful spirit and an agent of the Holy Trinity, which is a relationship between God and the universe.
It’s a relationship that is between the divine and the human.
The Holy Spirit can bless that relationship.”
It can be difficult to define exactly what science is.
But there are two things to consider: it is science that deals with the universe, and it is also science that is not, according to Fr.
The distinction is made because scientists, like all people, have access to the Holy Scriptures and other sources of divine knowledge.
“There are many ways that science can be defined as science,” he said.
“But when you look at science as the study of the natural world, that’s what we want to define it as.”
As an example, consider the way scientists have described the study and behavior of microbes in nature.
They say microbes are the most complex life on earth.
Some scientists, including some of the Nobel Prize-winning microbiologist Daniel Boorstin, have claimed that our understanding of life has evolved over the last 10,000 years.
And that is exactly what the Holy Father said when He said, “The first scientist to understand the universe was Jesus Christ, and that man has to learn to live with the truth of the gospel.”
While the Bible teaches that we are called to understand God’s Word and our fellow human beings by being born again, we have been given this gift of the Spirit by Jesus Christ.
And when the Holy Church teaches that scientists are servants of God, and thus worthy of a special gift, that is a blessing that the Catholic Church believes is not to be taken lightly.
“Science has to be seen as a vehicle of God’s grace,” said Fr.
“Science is a way of living that is able to give us answers to the questions we have about the world.
That is what is most valuable.”
The Church has also been called upon to be a defender of science.
“God has endowed the Catholic faith with the mission of promoting the truth and the goodness of life,” Fr.
Michael Zwicker, a professor of the history of science at the University of Notre Dame, said.
Science, he added, has to serve the good of all people.
That includes science.
