Since the Munnar Chapter of 2008, the Congregation has been aware of the need to promote an understanding of the new story of the Universe that is emerging in the past century. There is a scientific dimension to this learning. For us there is also the very significant dimension which is living out of this new story, putting our learnings into practice in the values and attitudes that shape our lives.

These resources ar meant to introduce you to some of the science and also some of the reflections of spiritual guides in our time. It is in no way a complete or balanced set of resources but will hopefully become a starting point for further reading and reflection.
