Catholics in Space

I was a bit skeptical when I saw this book. But the endorsements from George William Rutler, Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete, and several chefs, and also the quite lovely and informative flash animation documentary entitled "A Short History of the Vatican Space Program," won me over. (Wait for the animation to load, and watch it to the end, it's worth it). Though, I am somewhat disappointed to see no mention in it of St. Maximilian Kolbe's hypothetical rocket ship nor Fr. Athanasius Kircher's baroque tales of deep-space exploration. Perhaps that's for the sequel.
