“Cathedra” is a “hard-science” story, inspired by an article in Astronomy magazine on Enceladus, the most promising site for life in our solar system. It’s a tale of faith and one’s discovery of purpose within society. The title and theme came from this anecdote:

A man came upon a construction site where three people were working. He asked the first, “What are you doing?” and the man replied: “I am laying bricks.” He asked the second, “What are you doing?” and the man replied: “I am building a wall.” As he approached the third, he heard him humming a tune as he worked, and asked, “What are you doing?” The man stood, looked up at the sky, and smiled, “I am building a cathedral!”
