The Jesuits and Science: Letters from the Vatican Observatory

As we discussed recently with Fr Mitch Pacwa, the Jesuits are celebrating the 500th “anniversary” of St Ignatius’ conversion with an Ignatian Year. The Jesuit influence on society can be felt nearly everywhere you look, including in the field of Science. Fr Paul Mueller chats with us from the Vatican Observatory in Tucson, AZ.
