Reason to Believe

Bestselling author Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, spoke to over 1,100 in our Kellenberg Memorial Auditorium yesterday.

The day-long conference began with a discussion about the years leading to his conversion. The three presentations taken from his titled book, REASONS TO BELIEVE, explained,
"the "how and why" of the Catholic faith—drawing from Scripture, his own struggles and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather they offer complementary evidence that God exists. But He doesn't merely exist. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernible and knowable."

He showed, "that God created the universe with a purpose and a form—a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses."

Finally, at the heart of his talk was Hahn’s examination of Mary deliberately depicted as the Ark of the Covenant, as Queen Mother, as one to whom we give glory!
