Papal science

A friend sent me this interesting article about the Pope's views on science and Christianity. Here's a short quote:

The fact that matter carries within itself a mathematical structure, or is full of spirit, is the foundation upon which the modern natural sciences are based. It is only because matter is structured in an intelligent way that our spirit is capable of interpreting it and of actively remodeling it.
Much more at the link, including the Pope referring to "the great Galileo."
