Celebrate Columbus Day: October 12, 1492


"As proof that the Lord has always shown mercy towards me, on that Tuesday a sailor climbed up to the main top and sighted a cluster of three peaks, at which we said the Salve Regina and other prayers and gave many thanks to Our Lord."

-The Four Voyages by Christopher Columbus, p. 209 (http://www.penguinclassics.com/).

  1. For the majority of the Catholics of the world, they'll be celebrating or Our Lady del Pilar or Our Lady Aparecida.

    Colombus has to take a back seat.
