Help sought for hurricane victims in Central America

For the second time in two weeks, hurricanes have made landfall in Nicaragua and Honduras. Hurricane Eta made landfall in Central America Nov. 3, 2020, as a devastating category 4 storm. Fourteen days later, Nov. 17, 2020, Hurricane Iota struck the same area again, also as a category 4 storm.

Reports coming from Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala show complete destruction of homes and neighborhoods. Landslides caused by the heavy rain also have killed at least 100 people.

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami is asking for your support to help the victims of Eta and Iota. 100% of your donation to Catholic Charities will go toward local Caritas organizations in those countries to help alleviate the suffering.

Donations can be made by going to: www.ccadm.org.

The Story of Christopher Columbus

COURAGE AND CONVICTION: THE TRUE STORY OF COLUMBUS

“A thorough examination of the life and legacy of the fearless discoverer of America, narrated by actor Chazz Palminteri, this film provides insight into Christopher Columbus’ remarkable genius as a sea navigator as well as his deep desire to bring all nations to Christ. Through expert interviews and archival footage, we look at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. Finally, the film addresses the current indictments against Christopher Columbus with boldness and exposes the motives behind the attacks of revisionist historians. Courage and Conviction shows why Christopher Columbus remains not only a man worthy of admiration, but a noble icon of what it means to be a Catholic and an America.”
