Catholic Contributions To Science

There is a general assumption that one cannot be a faithful Catholic and pro Science.

This is completely erroneous, but can explain why there is much resistance from several Catholics today to certain medicines, vaccinations & even something as basic as wearing a face mask during this pandemic.

Science and religion are compatible with other and you can be a faithful Catholic whilst also being a scientist or following science recommendations.

So this post is about all the amazing Catholics who have made significant contributions to the church role of science.

You will notice a few nuns on this list too.

Some people think I advocate for women to not have a career. Nothing could be further from the truth.

You can have a career, even as a scientist, as long as your vocation (be it as a wife and mother, or as a nun) comes first!

On to the list, beginning with a scientist-priest who taught us that plague can be prevented by isolation, quarantine, and the wearing of face masks

ST. DR. GUISEPPE

FR. GABRIELE

FR. LUIGI

FR. FRANCESCO

SR. MIRIAM

FR. ROBERTO

FR. NICHOLAS

FR. GEORGE

ST. HILDEGARD

BISHOP NICHOLAS

Science is how God reveals a little of His mysteries & omnipotence to us. It is how He lets us in to the discoveries of the world around us and it is how He leads us to medical, healing and life-saving therapies.

As you can see, one can be a faithful Catholic and also be pro science.

The Catholic Church isnโ€™t anti-science and neither should we.

And if you are in STEM, please carry on the good work. The world needs more of you – not just brilliant scientists, but brilliant scientists who are also Catholic.

 

Maria, Sedes Sapientiae, ora pro nobis
