Physics is Sacramental

“A sacrament in the Catholic Church is an outward sign that points to something more.  These signs of grace connect us with divine life.”  (Page 26, You Are Loved, by Father Cedric Pisegna.)

I began my study of physics as a ten or eleven year old boy because it was cool. 

I continued as a twenty-something in college because it seemed the best way to “fisk” the universe.  Plus, it was still cool.

I return to physics now because it is, to me, a lower-case s sacrament.

(And it’s still cool …)
