Popes and Science

“Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.”Pope John Paul II

“The truth of the matter is that the Church and the scientific community will inevitably interact; their options do not include isolation.”Pope J. Paul II

“Galileo saw nature as a book whose author is God in the same way that scripture has God as its author.”Pope Benedict XVI

“The church and her pastors are not opposed to true and solid science, whether human or divine, but that they embrace it, encourage it, and promote it with the fullest possible dedication.” Pope Leo XIII

“From no part of creation does there arise a more eloquent or stronger invitation to prayer and to adoration.” Pope Pius XI

“Man ascends to God by climbing the ladder of the universe.” Pope Pius XII

“The more true science advances the more it discovers God, almost as though He were standing, vigilant and waiting, behind every door which science opens.” Pope Pius XII

“The Divine Spirit reveals itself from the coldness of space to the scientist open to finding a purpose for the whole of existing reality.” Pope Pius XII

“Science, which has encountered the Creator in its path, philosophy, and much more, revelation, in harmonious collaboration because all three are instruments of truth, like rays of the same sun, contemplate the substance, reveal the outlines, and portray the lineaments of the same Creator.” Pope Pius XII

  2. I teach my pre-algebra students at our Catholic school a unit on Pope Sylvester II, who reintroduced the abacus to Europe after the Dark Ages… Popes and science go rather well together!

  3. Coming from a science background of biology, chemistry, physiology, I see that there is an inherent order in the way our bodies are made and in the way they function. Our bodies glorify the work of God in creation. To study pure, natural science is to study God.
