Vatican City, Nov 21, 2012 / 12:38 pm
Pope Benedict XVI continued his series of teachings on faith by examining how it is "reasonable and not in conflict with science."
People from all over the world gathered in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall on Nov. 21 to hear the Pope's catechesis, which he delivers every Wednesday.
"The Catholic faith is reasonable and also nurtures trust in human reason," he told the audience of thousands. "It's crucial for people to open up to faith and know God and his plan of salvation in Jesus Christ."
Pope Benedict explained that there is a fruitful link between understanding and believing, which is rooted in the harmonious relationship between science and faith. Scientific research, he added, leads to knowledge of the truth about man and the cosmos.
