Has a Mass Ever Been Held Outside Of Earth's Atmosphere

Late-night questions with @gorshdaddy

I get work thoughts at night sorry. Once I texted pope Francis about how he had a cool back and asked him if he ever got weird thoughts at night as I do. He never responded just as I expected but hey. Anyways I can’t find the answer to this question so…


#2

Has a priest ever been in outer space ?, don’t think so, imo


#3

Work thoughts?


#4

Nah. Lol though


#5

I don’t believe Mass has ever been said in space. But Communion has been received in space.


#6

Sure…and they called it High Mass…I think!


#7

Do have any article for that? If you do I’d be genuinely curious to read so. (My understanding is that there’s only ever been pyxes carried up, not a Mass-saying priest.)

Buzz Aldrin took Communion on the moon in 1969, but he was Presbyterian, not Catholic.


#10

Jesus said to his apostles, “I shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine, until I drink it with you in my Father’s house.” I think there is some sort of communal meal with the Lord that might be somewhat similar to Mass in God’s Kingdom, and it definitely is beyond Earth’s atmosphere.


#11

Wrong and another example of heretical thoughts on CAF. :wink:

It’s called Mass of the Angels :smiley:


#12

No, it’s actually
Missa de Alienus


#13

Depends where heaven is. A mass is always going on there!


#14
Mass has never been given in space.
As a matter of fact, a Catholic priest has never gone into space, who could have had a 

mass there. If a priest had ever been an astronaut and gone into space, Catholics certainly would have heard about this.
A Catholic astronaut once took consecrated hosts into space so he could have communion in space for a month or so. He had cleared this with the Church so that he could do it.


#15

I don’t think that term is actually used unless the Centaurians stay to the end and actually get dismissed . . .

Everyone email your local bishops and archbishops about “From the Vatican to the Stars” a new Catholic space program that needs to be started. We are going to send a colony of 2000 Catholics: 3 deacons, 6 priests, and a bunch of workers with families to Mars. There they will build a town and a parish. Name the city New Rome City and start the archdiocese of NRC. Then they can convert a bunch of aliens and Mars can become property of the Catholic Church by popular vote of Martians.


#17

The astronauts on the space stations speak with Pope Francis. No doubt if an are Catholic, they get a Mass broadcast.

I attended Mass prior to the Battle of Reach.

Unfortunately only humans can become Catholic. Other than that I like your plan. But who will translate Our Father into Martian?

Side note: There is apparently a Klingon translation.
