388- The Virgin Mary and Island Names

I spent time in the Caribbean Islands and was struck by the beauty of the aquamarine waters, the coral reefs, deep blue of the ocean, the luscious vegetation and tropical island feel.

The human tragedy of slavery should never be forgotten in these islands and its lingering memory overshadows much of the beauty.

Fortunately addressing the wrongs of history is top of mind in our contemporary times.

Following this trip my awareness has led me to begin to look more deeply into it, however at this time I have only just begun to scratch the surface and need to spend more time learning of the past before being able to report on it at this time.

Here’s what did strike me that I can report on, the naming of the various islands in the Caribbean and the Virgin Mary’s influence.
