NEW CANEY, Texas, NOV. 20, 2008 (Zenit.org).- St. Thérèse wrote that she wanted to be a missionary on every continent simultaneously and reach the most remote islands — now her dream has extended to space flight.
The Carmelites gave the astronaut a relic of St. Thérèse for his flight.
Now, they report, she has traveled 5,735,643 miles around the earth for 14 days at 17,057 miles an hour. Meanwhile, the sisters commended the world to her intercession.
I wonder how many other relics of saints have made the trip to space?
