I need the title of a short story written by Robert Heinlein about a Jewuit priest who lost his faith after an intergalatic mission?

I used actually to have the story, can't find it, and would like to be able to obtain it.

Thanks so much.

I think you might mean The Star by Arthur C Clarke

That description you mention is a little like The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.
