A metric on a spherically symmetric space generated by a
spherical source of gravity and filled with a gravitational medium is constructed,
and criteria for the continuity of this metric on the entire space (which is
equivalent to the absence of black holes) are found. Properties of radial
geodesics under various constraints on the size of the gravitational source,
its mass, and the mass density of the gravitational medium are studied.
