Just one verse each day.
Pope Francis already knew the crew of the International Space Station, having spoken with them last October via satellite link.
On June 8, he met them face-to-face in Rome. And should the Successor of Peter ever need to minister in outer space, he’s ready to go, having received from the astronauts a custom-made space suit.
Complete with the Argentine flag, his coat of arms, and his crew name, the suit makes sure Jorge Bergoglio is ready for flight. A white cape ensures that he’d still be recognized on board as pope.
Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli and four other astronauts presented Francis with his unique gift today.
