extraterrestrial life

Reginald Garrigou-Langrange, OP, on extraterrestrial life

Quotation taken from: Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange. Christ the Savior: A Commentary on the Third Part of St. Thomas’ Theological Summa. United States: Herder Book Company, 1950. We may also say: 2. We do not know whether there are any other heavenly bodies suitable for human habitation, which are inhabited. On this point both the positive sciences and theology can offer only hypotheses. Therefore it is not on conjectural grounds that the testimony about the Incarnation must be rejected; namely, the testimony of Christ, of the apostles, of so many martyrs, of the Catholic Church must be rejected concerning the Incarnation.
