This Sunday sees the end of 'Science Week'. Last week we featured an article on how the Church is the patron of the sciences and how many of the greatest scientists were devout Christians. Here is a quote from one of them - Italian astrophysicist Enrico Medi:
"O you, mysterious galaxies... I see you, I calculate you, I understand you, I study you and I discover you, I penetrate you and I gather you. From you I take light and make it knowledge, I take movement and make it wisdom, I take sparkling colours and make them poetry; I take you stars in my hands and, trembling in the oneness of my being, I raise you above yourselves and offer you in prayer to the Creator, that through me alone you stars can worship"
