Ah, those cities of men

St. Augustine suggested that we be wary of cities of men and trust only in the City of God. But to watch some industrial giants portray their works—good ones for sure, and perhaps some not so good—you'd think that the solution for all human suffering is in their products and the skillful engineers who created them.

The Siemens ad below does just this. But remember the words of our Holy Father; true salvation comes not from science, but from love. (Spe Salvi, section 26.)

About the Blog

Catholic Ecology posts my regular column in the Rhode Island Catholic, as well as scientific and theological commentary about the latest eco-news, both within and outside of the Catholic Church. What is contained herein is but one person's attempt to teach and defend the Church's teachings - ecological and otherwise. As such, I offer all contents of this blog for approval of the bishops of the Church. It is my hope that nothing herein will lead anyone astray from truth.
