In answer to a couple of questions I received about the Bibles trained at the Abbey of Jerome and about the Abbey of Francis on the asteroid, Assisi, I wrote the following:
You're correct about paper being expensive. When the Bibles were hard copied before the second memory core collapse, they were incised on plastic because of this. The collections of the copies are held at several locations, a number of which are secret, in hopes that they will never all be lost. The training of "Bibles" is a further effort to protect against this.
Now, about Assisi; there is an elder-care facility attached to the Abbey of Francis. It grew out of a retirement center for elderly religious (priests, brothers, and sisters) after finding that there was a need for such care for the laity (the average person). At this point, Lazarus House was opened to all based on need. Its guiding principle is that all are children of God and that every person's beliefs are their own and are respected as long as they do not impinge on those of others. There are chaplains of a number of religions in residence. One of the main features is that parts of the facility have varying levels of gravity from 1G to micro-gravity. The abbot at the moment is Abbot Anthony Mary de Guadalcanal, T.O.R. (Third Order Regular--don't sweat it, it's just part of his name that tells one to which order of Franciscan friars he belongs). The head of the Infirmary is Brother Peter An Loc Maria, T.O.R. The medicos and nursing brothers number some 160 and they come and go as they are assigned and reassigned where needed, so go ahead and invent any such characters you need.
The main purpose of the Abbey of Francis is its seminary. Almost all mission priests and a number of diocesan priests are educated here. Douay Bede, the main character in the “Word Carrier” series is teamed with a product of the abbey, Fr. Oaku Mary, T.O.R. as part of the Mission to Spacers. Their calling is to go where requested outside established dioceses, such as aboard ships and out among the ice stations.
Assisi itself is an asteroid orbiting 94 Ceti A. It is in an orbit close to perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic. This is the reason the Jesuits and Trinity University at Christchurch built an optical observatory, St. Joseph Cupertino, and a radio observatory, Consolmagno, on the end opposite the abbey. Near the observatories is housing for staff and tourists (the Jesuits stay at the abbey).
As part of the housing complex, there is a Palmer Company trading post. There are three lighters (often referred to as "The Magi;" "Melchior," "Caspar," and "Balthasar"), based at the landing pad about halfway between the abbey and the observatories, which are used to move people and cargo between the surface and ships parked overhead.
