As a spiritual farewell, I would like to appeal to our members to join in a novena, beginning Tuesday April 21 and ending on Wednesday April 29, using the rosary or your own choice of prayer.
One final note for today: I have been re-reading Jaki's Scientist and Catholic: Pierre Duhem to find some guidance in our work, and have just discovered a curious parallel:
Pierre Duhem's father, Joseph Duhem, died on April 7, 1899.Such timing is not coincidental. It should urge us to work to have a "Collected Works of Pierre Duhem", in French and in English, for the centennial of his death in 2016. These seven years will go very quickly, but it is something to work towards.
Our spiritual father, Stanley Jaki, died on April 7, 2009.
