Columbus Day

Here in Hawaii this holiday is referred to as Discover's Day. I think we should honor the man who made this day possible Cristóbal Colón.

googled Christopher Columbus and Catholic . . . lots of great information came up regarding his devotion to spreading the Gospel of our Lord and the Catholic faith. I spoke just a few words on my Bella Vita blog, and might add a few more on my Beautiful Caholic Faith blog. I had read that today is "Discoverers' Day in Hawaii. Hope you are doing well!

Aloha! Roz
