Jesus in Space - A True Story That's Out of This World
T-minus … 3 … 2 … 1 … BLAST OFF! With a roar, the space shuttle Endeavour was launched into space. But when Astronaut Tom Jones left the earth, he didn’t leave Jesus behind!
Tom Jones was one of three Catholic crew members on NASA mission STS-59 who received permission to bring the Blessed Sacrament with them on their 1994 expedition. In this one-of-a-kind children’s book for ages 4-8, author Cecilia Cicone and artist Gabhor Utomo narrate the adventures of Astronaut Tom and his companions, and how the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist accompanied them on their mission.
Features full-color photographs and a timeline of NASA space shuttle mission STS-59; catechesis on the Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration; and a special message from Astronaut Tom to inspire young adventurers to be courageous in faith and secure in the truth of God’s love for them!
