8--THE PROGRESS Fr;day, Sept. 28, Around the Archdiocese: Galileo Galilei: ,, , i i L 'Will (EDITOR'S NOTE: The Church has always been the patron of arts and science. With the modern emphaJis on technical science, it is well to recall Catholics who have made significant con- tributions in the field of natural science throughout history. This is the ninth in a series.) By JOHN J. ECKHART That this is the glor- i,ous age of science, is a fact known to all, with the possible exception of a goatherd in Patagonia and a potato farmer on the Cork-- Kerry border I once met. But for better or for worse, a later historical judgement, we live and struggle for salvation in a milieu that seems to have taken the lid off of possibil- ities, what with plunging into the heart of matter and per- haps life itself. Extravagant promises are made, and some will be kept, but gone forever is the simple life when man had the sure knowledge that "if God had meant man to fly he would have given him wings." The areas of science are as in- finite as the variety of God's magnificent creation. Prior to the Protestant re- bellion it is safe to assume that all of the scientists of the western world were Cath- olics. The enemies of the Church dismiss this possibility with the hurried assumption that there were no scientists prior to the age that sprang Luther, Calvin and Zwingli on the stage of the theology. True, there were not many that we would address as pure scientists in the light of contemporary understand- ing, but there were many men of incisive intellect and inquiring curiosity that laid, little by little, the ground to be walked upon by the "real" scientists of yester- day and today. For too many years the long finger of The World seam and depreciation has been pointed at the Church and some misguided 18th Century historian's idea of Catholicism's supposed hat- red of science. The Church has never hated science. This is a self-evident truism based on the most cur- sory study. She has always fostered science as well as the arts. I would hope this series will make that clear. Holy Mother the Church has loved learning from the beginning, as Our Lord told us, "The Truth shall set you free." Where less attention was paid to science it was merely a reflection of the age Not all periods have been blessed with our own brand of mania. Then, asks the clouded declaimer, if the Catholic Church has al- ways been for learning and science , . . How about Gal- ileo? Galileo Galilei (1584 - 1642) was born the son of noble but impoverished Florentine faro- Ever Forget?' University of Pisa, where he established the first principles of dynamics by supposedly tossing a weight over the edge of the leaning tower. (In ac- tuality, this probably never took place,) Later (1592) he was ap- pointed to fill the chair of mathematics at Padua, en- joying both monetary and professional s u c c e s s. The rumor concerning the inven- tion of a telescope was enough to set Galileo off on his own and he rapidly de- veloped a three power, and then with improvements, a 32 power telescope. With his telescope he rapidly confirm- ed his suspicions that the Copernican theory was sub. stantiaily correct. Galileo went on to greater success at Florence. He was a brilliant mathematician, formidable research enthusiast, and possessed a redoubtable dialectic and great zeal. This combination led him to take iI fly destined for the study of medicine at the University of Pisa. His love of mathematics led him from medicine and in- to immediate discoveries of a physical nature, i. e., while watching a lamp set swinging in the cathedral of Pisa he ob- served that, whatever the range of its oscillations, they were invariably executed in equal times. The experimental verification of this fact led him to the important discovery of the isochronism of the pen- dulum. He pursued a career as pro- fessor of mathematics at the McDonnells Father Kane To Conduct Novena Celebrate 50 Years MR. AND MRS. E, N. McDONNELL TACOMA N Mr. a n d Mrs. E. N. McDonnell ob- served their 50th wed- ding an iversary with a jubilee Mass at St. Leo Church Septem- ber 20. The celebrant was Rev. Gerald Morin. The couple was married Sept. 20, 1912, in St. Paul, Minn. They had met in Marshfield, Ore., now named Coos Bay, and re- turned to Marshfield following the wedding. After a year they moved to Tacoma where they have re- sided ever since. The McDon- nells have been members of St. Leo Parish 49 years.

He had no desire to start theological debate over the position of the sun relative to the earth, but once the question had been raised by the Holy Office, Galileo threw himself into a Coper- nican defense to the extent of trying to find justification in Holy Scripture for the Copernican theory (which by the way had been approved by Clement VII over 50 years before). However these were touchy The Rev. Patrick D. Kane, O. P. will conduct the annual Rosary Novena at Blessed Sac- rament Church beginning Sat- urday, Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Services will be at 7:30 each evening a n d morning s e r- vice will begin with Mass at 8 a.m. follow- ed by a ser- mon.

All are invited to attend the novena and pray for the suc- cess of the Vatican's Ecumen- ical Council. Serrans Cite Two Archbishops VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Arch- bishop Edward D. Howard of Portland and Archbishop Wil- liam M. Duke d Vancouver Saturday were honored here for their long terms of service in the hierarchy by Serrans. The two prelates, visibly moved at the honor, were presented w i t h scrolls and medals at the District One convention of Serra Interna- tional, a layman's organization which promotes vocations to the priesthood. The medals were two ster- ling gifts from Pope John XXIII and emblematic of his pontificate. T h e beautiful hand-drawn scrolls were pre- pared by Carmelite nuns of St. Joseph Monastery in Seattle. Both archbishops were also cited for their long period of "devoted friendship to Serra International," according to District Governor Igantius E. Morrison of Seattle. Among those delegates in at- tendance f r o m Washington,- Oregon and. Vancouver were more than 100 from the Arch- diocese of Seattle. Archbishop Howard w a s consecrated a bishop April 8, 1924. Archbishop Duke was consecrated a titular arch- bishop October 18, 1928.

Galileo promised at that time that he would say, teach or print no more about this mat- ter, and everybody was re- latively happy. Recall that neither proposition was a known, proven and established fact at the time. The Church erred, but not to the monstr- ous affect as is sometimes written. Galileo kept his promise for over 15 years. His astronom- ical treatises on comets and other subjects were heralded with great approval by ec- clesiastical as well as scienti- fic circles. However in 1632 he had printed his famous by ill-starred "Dialogo dei due massimi sistemi del monde." This was another outright justification of the Copernican theory and the Holy Office act- ed promptly. Galileo was brought to Rome, treated exceptionally well, held "prisoner" for three entire days. In obed- ience he recanted his scienti- fic theories. The times, in the opinion of the Holy Of- fice, did not justify any kind of tampering with the mean- ing of scripture, and the sun could not stand still at Josue's command if it did not rotate about the earth. But in spite of this eccles- iastical set-back, Galileo ted out the rest of his life immers- ed in scientific accomplish- ments and honors that neither age nor blindness could dim. He continued the favorite of ranking churchmen and intel- lectuals throughout Europe. He was working on the theory of impact when he was taken with fever which resulted in his death on January 8, 1642. The Church had not turned its back on knowledge or on the scientist, it had judged wrong- ly on one subjcct, not yet prov- en. Will the world ever forget? S.
