A post by Fr. James Kurzynski on The Catholic Astronomer website. “A key difference between modern physics and Augustine is that Augustine’s understanding of change also implies the change of our spiritual lives and our relationship with God.

This change does not happen in a moment, but is an ongoing process of continual creation by God.”
