Brother Guy writes: ‘By seeing, with the eyes of an astronomer, how God has made creation in all its immensity, we can become more familiar with who God is and how God loves us.’

Brother Guy earned his PhD in Planetary Science at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in 1978. In 1989 he entered the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and took vows as a brother in 1991. He was assigned as an astronomer to the Vatican Observatory, where he served as curator of the Vatican Meteorite collection. In 2014 he was awarded the Carl Sagan Medal for public outreach.

In 2015 Pope Francis named him Director of the Vatican Observatory.
