In response to a listener question, we look at what the Catholic Church has stated about life on other planets and alternate dimensions and how such life might affect what we believe.

Interview with Br. Guy Consolmagno, SJ about extra-terrestrial life from the Catholic News Service.
Article by Br. Guy from Beliefnet. A copy of his book on extra-terrestrial life can be purchased here.
Article about Msgr. Corrado Balducci – keep in mind the website of the article is very interested in ufos.

Article about St. Thomas Aquinas, O.P. and extra-terrestrial life.

This issue has been discussed several times among the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

Science Fiction books which look at this issue are:
