Description: What does physics have to do with Holy Communion? Though it surprises most, St. Thomas Aquinas teaches that the first physics is needed to understand Communion. Dr. Anthony Rizzi is here to reveal the simple connection between physics, our everyday world, and God. This preamble of the Faith has been all but forgotten. He gives us, for the first time at the level of a 7 year old, this preamble in light of modern scientific thinking. It is the general framework for all of our knowledge given in simple terms, leading us from the things we see and hear as small children to the scientific method and finally proving the existence of God.
