Mongolia and the Moon

A little something from Ireland’s favourite outspoken literary monk:

‘Catholicism and science fiction are not strange bedfellows, not in my book. As a child, I was barely able to tell them apart. I remember being shown a fifteenth century illustration of Gideon and the Fleece and thinking it was a still from the new Doctor Who. Having an angel appear to you and being abducted by an alien must be relatively similar experiences. And as far as I’m concerned, sending missionaries into outer space isn’t so weird. We’re always sending them to Mongolia, after all..’  (Ciambhal O’Droningham)
