On this day in 1492, Christopher Columbus made landfall in the New World, in present day Bahamas. Over the past 20-30 years, Columbus has become a controversial figure, but as Catholics living in the New World, we have much to be thankful for this fellow Catholic (and member of the Franciscan Third Order of Penance).
For your Columbus Day reading pleasure:
We do not have to endorse every action of men who came to this continent after Columbus to recognize the greatness of his accomplishments, especially in spreading the Gospel to the New World.
