Purpose of the blog

The name of this blog concatenates two concepts which, at first glance, would not seem to have much to do with one another: recursion and Christianity. Eventually, I will get around to clarifying what relationship I see between them; for now just take it on (human) faith.

If all goes well, and if God gives me time, I hope to bring out how certain concepts, encountered frequently in computer science (for those who actually study that field) can shed light on other concepts, frequent in Catholic theology, which may sound "high-falutin'", but which nevertheless can actually be experienced by human beings resident on planet Earth.

We'll see.
