I think the question does it actually "pass" through the black hole? I have heard that if our sun was to become a black hole it would be about 5-10 km across. The mass is still there, but the density of the mass creates the singularity in the center. (which is the "object" that does the space-time distortion) That is one big debate, which is "can a singularity exist just by itself" (naked singularity problem).
