We got a problem Houston! The U.S. private space exploration company Space X had to delay its maiden flight of the Dragon, it is the first commercial visitor to the International Space Station. Space X founded by PayPal billionaire. The delay is to be for a week or two.
From the twitter account of Elon Musk the founder of Space X he tweeted this on the Feast of St George the Dragon Slayer:
Am pushing launch back approx a week to do more testing on Dragon docking code. New date pending coordination with @NASA. about 21 hours ago via web Elon Musk
INTROIT: Psalm 63: 3
Thou last protected me, O God, from the assembly of the malignant, alleluia: from the multitude of the workers of iniquity, alleluia. alleluia. (Ps. 63: 2) Hear, O God, my prayers, when I make supplication to Thee: deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy v. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. If thou lovest Me...
Alleluia, alleluia. V. (Ps. 88: 6) The heavens shall confess Thy wonders, O Lord; and Thy truth in the Church of the saints. Alleluia. V. (Ps. 20: 4) O Lord, Thou halt set on his head a crown of precious stones. Alleluia.
Sanctify the gifts we offer Thee, O Lord, and through the intercession of blessed George, Thy martyr, cleanse us by them from the stains of our sins. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God Forever and ever. R. Amen.
From the Secret of the Mass of St. George: cleanse us by them from the stains of our sins.....St Thomas Aquinas said that all the sinful works of men will one day be cleansed by the fire of the final conflagration St Thomas includes all the works of men, including those sinful man made works shot into space, just like the 'Dragon'
I'm sure Mr. Musk was not paying attention to the Liturgical calendar when he tweeted his tweet.
