The heart of the Christian community is our Triune Lord: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Geography, history, and numbers are not the heart, but probably I will type mostly on these topics. As the internet already provides many encouraging spiritual guides and discouraging contentious forums, I intend to offer neither.

Christopher Columbus

For quite a while I have been impressed with the story that Christopher Columbus and his crew sang the Salve Regina at sunset.  Today (celebrating him on a Monday), I came across this lengthy article about Columbus's devotion to Mary as shown in the names of ships and places.  The author is a Marianist Brother at the University of Dayton.
Please note that Guadalupe is first of all a place in Extremadura, Spain.  The name was brought to Mexico.
