‘Gloria Dei vivens homo, vita autem hominis visio Dei!’ (Irenaeus 1965: 248. 20, 7). This famous and magnificent synthesis is the core of the present paper which aims to
examine a fascinating analogy between the recent astronomical discovery concerning Gravitational Waves produced by the merger of two neutron stars (the event could be observed on August the 17th 2017 in the LIGO and Virgo Gravitational Interferometers and it was identified as GW170817), and the relation between God and Man in the Christian faith. The analogy is audacious but it seems to be extremely interesting. Is nature itself pointing beyond nature? We’ll try to walk inside a possible reading of nature as a continuous Creation/calling in which the Creator and Father Himself invites His children to search and dialogue with Him according to God’s dimension of Logos in Jesus Christ. The truth can never contradict the Truth, because everything around us, that is the whole Creation, speaks the same language of an incredible history of Love!
