    Is science only another human intellectual achievement, as is music, literature, philosophy? Or is it something more? Are the techniques used in science—mathematics, experiment, and rational inquiry—given to humankind by God so that His creation be understood and glorified, as in Psalm 19A? What ethical constraints, if any, does God set on science? And why did science develop only with Christendom? And finally, why should we not worship the idol of Science? These questions will be addressed in this webinar.

    A Sword Will Pierce by Linda Blosser-Medley https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/aswordwillpierce/ This is a love story, showing the great love Mary has for God, always saying, “God’s will be done” and doing His will, always trusting fully in Him.

    Vale of Hope by Grace Bourget https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/valeofhope/ In 15th-century Spain, a reckless youth finds himself grounded with the worst punishment he can imagine: volunteering in a leper camp.

    Obsidian Mirth by Thom Brucie https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/obsidianmirth/ This is a heart-rending and beautiful story, and these characters will hover at the outskirts of your thoughts like whispering ghosts of past kinships.

    The Messiah of the Metro Cafe by Ronda Chervin https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/metrocafe/ It was 9:00 A.M., October 24, 2022. The reporters of the Catholic Weekly of Los Angeles met in the chief editor’s office for their special assignments. “This cult leader is influencing some St. Mark’s seminarians from his throne in a nearby café.” “I’ll take that one,” Teresa grinned enthusiastically. And so began the conversion of Michael Kaufman.

    Goat-Song and Other Stories by David Ross https://enroutebooksandmedia.com/goat-song/ “Goat-Song” concerns an exclusive theatrical production, and the two people involved, one alive, the other dead. “Gaps” concerns a recluse who wakes to find a growing hole in his backyard. “Poison” concerns a small-business owner who invents a product that produces the ability to manifest memories in reality.

    Dr. Gerard Verschuuren and Dr. Stacy Trasancos on Faith That Makes You Think (December 10, 2022)

    Dr. Gerard Verschuuren and Dr. Stacy Trasancos on Faith That Makes You Think (December 10, 2022)

    In this episode of I Thought You'd Like to Know This, Too, ITEST presents a webinar with Dr. Gerard Verschuuren and Dr. Stacy Trasancos on Faith That Makes You Think (December 10, 2022)

    Can faith ever make you think? For most people, thinking contradicts having faith. People who think do not have faith. And people who have faith do not think. That is the most common perception nowadays. But that perception is seriously flawed.

    In fact, there is a strong connection between thinking and having faith. St. Augustine expressed this quite clearly saying, “Believers are also thinkers: in believing, they think and in thinking, they believe.… If faith does not think, it is nothing.” In the Catholic tradition, this connection has been known as “faith and reason.” Pope John Paul II even wrote an encyclical on this issue, making them two sides of the same coin.

    Dr. Craig Turczynski and Dr. Mary Anne Urlakis with Laura Elm on In Vitro Fertilization & the Sanctity of Human Life (November 19, 2022)

    In this episode of "I Thought You'd Like to Know This, Too," Dr. Craig Turczynski and Dr. Mary Anne Urlakis present an ITEST webinar entitled "In Vitro Fertilization and the Sanctity of Human Life."

    Assisted Reproductive Technology Violates Natural Law and Causes Harm by Dr. Craig Turczynski

    The leaders in the field of assisted reproductive technology (ART) are promoting the use of technology in an increasingly more radical direction. Separating the unitive and procreative purpose of marital intercourse is foremost, but there are many ways in which ART promotes evil that even non-Catholics can identify with. These share a common characteristic of violating natural law. The first principle of natural law is “the good is to be done and pursued and evil is to be avoided.” This necessarily requires following an objective moral truth that can be ascertained using human reason. On the other hand, ART follows a subjective, relative interpretation of right and wrong. Application of the technology outside of objective moral boundaries often produces more complications and difficulty for the individual and society than the problem in which they intend to solve. This talk will summarize the 5 most undesirable consequences of ART’s disordered approach as experienced by an Embryologist who left the field after having a crisis of conscience.

    Sanctity of Life: IVF: Science, the Church, & Bioethics by Dr. Mary Anne Urlakis

    From the moment of conception, a profoundly unique and sacred relationship exists between every human person and Almighty God. Each and every person, bearing the image and likeness of God, is created with a vocation to fulfill an eternal destiny of divine beatitude. The Church teaches us: “Endowed with “a spiritual and immortal” soul, the human person is “the only creature on earth that God has willed for its own sake. From his conception, he is destined for eternal beatitude (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1703, referencing Gaudium et Spes 14 §2; 24 §3).” In this presentation, we will examine the role of bioethics regarding In Vitro Fertilization and other Artificial Reproductive Technologies (ARTs). After a brief survey of the history and role of bioethics and the anthropology of the human person, this presentation will focus on both science and theology which underpins the Magisterial teaching regarding the sanctity of human life and the role of Artificial Reproductive Technology.

    Dr. Thomas Sheahen and Dr. Stacy Trasancos present on How Science and Theology Read One Another (October 29, 2022)

    Pope St. John Paul II began his famous encyclical, “Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth.” Dr. Thomas P. Sheahen, with a Ph.D. degree in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, examines truth from the wing of science. Scientists depend on empirical data for conclusions. Dr. Stacy A. Trasancos, with a Ph.D. in chemistry and M.A. in dogmatic theology, explains how we find truth from the wing of faith. Theologians derive formulations from divine revelation. Together they seek an understanding of the axiom, truth cannot contradict truth.
