In this time of paranoia over invisible viruses, we must comfort ourselves with the reminder that Our Heavenly Father is the God of Science, and continues His supernatural oversight of our world. As our family was painstakingly working through doctrinal issues before our conversion to Catholicism, my science-oriented brain was dumbstruck to come across the phenomena of INCORRUPT SAINTS.
