stars & faith & life

May 3, 2019

Below you will find the audio of the second of three Christchurch conversations with Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno held in The Piano (Centre for Music & the Arts). The audio of the earlier session with the Canterbury Business community is available at this link: The Bigger Picture.”

Students from a dozen Canterbury high schools were present as well as a good number of university students, a total of around 300 young people. They came expecting to learn of astronomy and science and religion with questions about outer space and the possibility of life on other planets.

They were not disappointed since all expected topics were covered. But Br. Guy went well beyond their expectations with profound reflections on life and love, hope and joy and discernment of life choices.

Instead of questions from the floor I was asked to spend 40 minutes in conversation with Br Guy. With the podcast below Food For Faith is happy to share his encouragement and inspiration.

  1. If only the media would focus on hope and report events like this, our world would be a stronger happier place.

    Our young people are our only hope for the future and need to see themselves as that future and not as victims or slaves to oppression and violence.
