"A cosmopolitan space church was built in near-Earth orbit. Though it was called a church, there was no physical building other than a gigantic cross... The faithful would drift below it in space suits in worship, and as many as tens of thousands participated... Viewed from the surface, the candles and the worshipping congregation seemed like a cloud of glowing space dust. And each night, innumerable individuals on the surface prayed to the cross among the stars." - Cixin Liu, Death's End
