The heavens declare the glory of God: the firmament proclaims the works of his hands.  Day unto day pours forth speech; night unto night whispers knowledge.Psalms 19:1-3

Without faith in a Creator God, one who looks at His universe and declares it Good, how can you justify the belief that this universe is worth studying; indeed, that the universe even makes enough sense to be able to be studied? - Guy Consolmagno (as in Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist).

Modern scholars reject the old idea the Catholic Church was nothing but an opponent of the sciences.  You would be considered almost beyond help, if you continue to argue that to a professional historian of science.Thomas E. Woods

Significant updates in rational approaches to God have been physics and cosmology. - Robert J. Spitzer

Tongues as of Fire

"When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim" (Acts 2:1-4).

The Solemnity of the Ascension

"And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain... But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep." -  Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 15:14-20

"What do atheists believe happens when we die? You are just no longer there..." - Hemant Mehta,

"Christ in his human body is leaving the world for the last time...The Ascension is the final leg of the Paschal Mystery: Passion, Death, Resurrection and Ascension into heaven (as mentioned in the Eucharist Prayer of the Mass). It is not until Jesus ascends and returns to His Father that His act of Redemption is completed." -

"In the silence of the heart, you speak..." - Audrey Assad
