Dear Father Spitzer, is it possible for there to be Divine intervention in our universe?

I have seen what you had to say about Hawking’s theory of a self-creating universe. What I want to know is your response to the theory of Hawking’s that if God did create the universe that he doesn’t break the laws that govern it.

And if that is true how can there be things like Divine intervention? (ex: Jesus walking on water defying the law of gravity, or the Resurrection). If such things occurred how does it not break those constants that you talk about that give us a life sustainable universe?


Divine Intervention

Dear Neil,

You cannot disprove God or an attribute of God from anything within the universe.

God is independent of the Universe, but can affect it any way he wishes. Thanks for your question.

God bless,
Fr. Spitzer
