Sister Kathleen Duffy is a member of a Catholic religious order, the Sisters of Saint Joseph, and she’s also had a decades-long academic career as a molecular physicist at Chestnut Hill College. In this weaving together of science and spirituality, she’s been guided by the paleontologist and mystic, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, also a person with deep commitments to both scientific inquiry and religious faith. In this conversation, Sr. Kathy reflects on Teilhard’s understanding of our Universe as a journey of both matter and spirit, evolving toward greater unity, beauty, and love.
