Adventurous priest didn't make it
In April I wrote of Father Adelir Antonio de Carli, who set out suspended beneath a large number of helium-filled balloons to break the record for such a flight. He disappeared out at sea, as you may recall.
Sadly, a body found floating in the Atlantic Ocean has been identified as that of Fr. de Carli. Searchers had earlier found some of his balloons.
I'm sorry for the good Father . . . but if one insists on doing such stunts right next to the Atlantic Ocean, I'm afraid one daren't forget that Mother Nature is a real bitch! She doesn't care about your motives or intentions. She'll kill you without a second thought.
Oh - and Murphy's Law applies even to priests!
