Happy Columbus Day!
“Columbus is ours”: The great Pope Leo XIII on the great Christopher Columbus, of happy memory. And here is a series of lectures by Fr. John Hardon on Columbus the Catholic. Too much pro-Catholic bias, you say? OK, just for balance, I’ll throw in this defense of Columbus from the atheistic Ayn Rand Institute.
On the lighter side, here is a (somewhat goofy) version of the classic Fletcher Henderson tune “Christopher Columbus.” Enjoy, and raise a glass to the man who brought the West out west!
