Copernicus: Motor terrae, solisque Stator
A news story today reports that Copernicus' remains have been identified in Frombork, Poland. I'm glad; I hope his grave becomes of place of private pilgrimage. In lieu of making that trip, though, might I suggest looking up at the moon some night and spotting, not the most prominent crater visible, but the second greatest: it's named for Dcn. Copernicus*, and it might help us to remember to offer a prayer for the great lawyer-astronomer's soul, and for all the Church's scholars who have advanced the world's authentic understanding of itself.
