Mary in space

Last week one evening I went to a talk held at the Dexter School across the street from us. They had two astronauts speak who had flown on the international space station within the past year. The talk was fascinating as they told us about what it's like to live without gravity, etc.

They showed many pictures and I happened to notice that in a part of the space station (which I think was the Russian part) there was a Byzantine-looking crucifix on the wall. Not far above it was an icon of the Blessed Mother! They showed that section of the craft several times so I got a fairly good look at it. It was great to think that Mary's image is orbiting the earth, looking down on all of us as she travels around the globe!
