Hubble for Bubble Catholics

Check out all the stars. My bad. They're galaxies.

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse."

New American Standard Bible: 1995 update. (1995). (Ro 1:20). LaHabra, CA: The Lockman Foundation.


  1. Like the stars of the morning,
    His brightness adorning,
    They shall shine in their beauty,
    Bright gems for His crown.

    -- from the hymn "When He Cometh", by Wm. Root and George Cushing

  2. Correction: Wm. Cushing and George Root.

  3. I don't understand how people can look at Hubble pictures and not be moved to faith. I know that would be dismissed as a naive proposition, but I think St. Paul was onto something. To think that each one of these island universes has billion of stars, and our Milky Way galaxy is just a drop in the bucket shows what a powerful, even *excessive* God we have. Also, I don't know why it should matter whether we are in the center of the universe or not, or why this picture should cause anyone to think we are insignificant. This was all created for us, as far as we know.
