My Theology: The world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs.
How does a scientist find God in the universe? To Guy Consolmagno, Director of the Vatican Observatory, astronomy is more than observing the universe; it is a process of learning to Look, See, and Imagine, and a setting aside of everything that may distract us from a deeper knowledge of the universe and its Creator.
For Br Guy, Joy is his compass, Truth is his goal, and Imagination weaves them together. Most importantly, his science and his theology are developed within a community of fellow seekers, sharing the stories that teach them how to explore, and together making sense of what they discover.
Br Guy Consolmagno , Director of the Vatican Observatory and President of the Vatican Observatory Foundation, is a research astronomer, physicist, and religious brother.
