Seeing: Gazing into the Cosmos through the Eyes of Vatican Astronomers

Online at 12 pm – 2:00 pm ET

American Teilhard Association Annual Event

In the beginning of The Human Phenomenon, Teilhard tell us, “Seeing. One could say that the whole of life lies in seeing.” What better way to heed Teilhard’s imperative to SEE or to perish than to look contemplatively at the cosmos and to ask two Jesuit Astronomers from the Vatican Observatory, Guy Consolmagno, SJ, and Richard D’Souza, SJ, to be our guides through the beautiful cosmic images recently obtained from the JWST? And to remind us to look contemplatively at these images even while both admiring their beauty and probing more deeply their mechanisms, Teilhardian Libby Osgood, CND will interact with the astronomers, posing questions that will stimulate our ability to sense the mystery imbedded deep within. This event will be an occasion for seeing on a grand scale. We hope you will accompany us on the journey.
