First Food

Many of you will not know that the first food consumed on the moon was the Holy Communion. Buzz Aldrin took with him the bread and wine to share in Holy Communion. To those non-Christians this will seem fanciful perhaps, to those of us who week by week encounter God really close to us in that sacrament it has a powerful and rich meaning. Of our common humanity, and our common God..
There's a link here on Bosco's site

Its a bit mind-blowing and in a quite wonderful way.
(The article on the link is good).
