1 Corinthians 13:13♡

Father Georges Lemaitre, friend and Godfather of Pierre Matthews.

He (the Christian researcher) knows that not one thing in all creation has been done without God, but he knows also that God nowhere takes the place of His creatures. Omnipresent divine activity is everywhere, essentially hidden. It never had to be a question of reducing the supreme Being to the rank of a scientific hypothesis. -George Lemaitre (Big Bang Theory developer and Catholic priest).
