Science and religion intertwined writes Bishop Keenan

Posted by SCMO on 12th May 2015 in Christianity | Science, religion, Bishop John Keenan,

...our first encyclical letter ˜Deus Caritas Est , your words have always been given detailed attention and careful study not only by the Catholic faithful but by peoples of all faiths and none.

Your words to us; at Bellahouston Park, Twickenham, Westminster, Hyde Park, at the Beatification, and here in Birmingham will be studied and used to fortify us all in the faith passed on to us through the ages by the apostles and delivered over these four great days by the successor of Peter himself.
