My name is Max and in short, I am a Catholic Physicist. Truth be told, I do not usually identify myself as a physicist, but I did, in fact, earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics so I think technically, that makes me a physicist… It’s up for debate. By the grace of God, I am also a Catholic and have been since my step-father married my mom, and we converted to the faith. My wife, Cassie, who is also a Catholic Physicist, and I went on to earn our Master’s degrees in Atmospheric Science and Structural Engineering, respectively. I am now working as a Structural Engineer and Cassie teaches high school physics.
Like most people, I like to learn things and I especially like to learn things about my faith. The issue with me, however, is that I can read all the books I can get my hands on or listen to all the inspiring talks I can find, but I will not be able to retain this information. Maybe that’s a bit of a broad over-generalization, but it has some truth to it. If I can be held responsible for the information that I am seeking, whether it’s in the form of a school exam or a blog post that someone else will read (maybe…), I will be able to retain that information much more easily than if I were to simply read it in passing. As a result, this blog was born. If all goes well, it will be a place for me, and for whoever visits this site, to learn interesting things about the Catholic faith.
