3 September: Mother Teresa’s Shoes

Over at the Vatican Observatory Website, Fr James Kurzynski links Mother Teresa’s shoes, church architecture, the Eucharist and an astronomer’s view of creation.

He reminds me of a Welsh astronomer, poet and theologian, Henry Vaughan, who mused on the saints:

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling’ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
Follow the links and enjoy both astronomers’ reflections!

    And the stars we see, light years away – are we seeing them as once they were? Are they relics too?
    Maurice.
