So true. Catholicism's respect for nature, for science, for all life and for learning is shown in founding of schools, universities, hospitalsand care centers of all types. "By virtue of the Creation and still more of the Incarnation, nothing is profane here below for those who know how to see" (Catholic paleontologist T. de Chardin). The Church's rituals include healing and invoking the Spirit of God, with laying on of hands and anointing of the sick.
