Just how big is the universe?

Every now and then there is a science article that provides an insight into the nature of things that serves to reinforce Christian belief. The Globe and Mail has published such an article entitled "Where does the universe end?".

I draw your attention to following quote:

The Universe doesn't end, as counter-intuitive as this seems. Once again, language confuses concepts. We speak of a ‘Big Bang' but don't mean a ‘bang' like an explosion, which has a centre and a shock wave that moves spherically out into air from the explosion.

Instead, the ‘Big Bang' happened everywhere in the Universe at once, with no centre. Shortly after the ‘Big Bang', density and pressure of the Entire Universe were the same everywhere. So, pressure difference could not possibly create an explosion. The ‘Big Bang' wasn't a bang at all.

Humm... so the universe appeared everywhere all at once. Sounds like the Genesis account to me.

    The Church Fathers are rolling in their graves.

  2. Thanks for the link! It is an excellent summary of the early Church Father's positions that are now supported by science.

  4. The universe is a type of God's love. There is no containing it, and no end to it. And the more "creation" that takes place in the universe, the more Love there is, and by definition, "greater" God.

  5. When God created the universe, he did just that, create. God did not make something out of nothing since there was no nothing to begin with. God simply declared it, and it was. His love is even bigger than we can imagine. "The heavens proclaim the Glory of God, and all creation is shouting for joy!"

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
