The First Catholics in Virginia Monument

This crucifix was erected in 1930 by the Catholic Woman's Club of Richmond, in honor of the first Catholic settlement in Virginia in 1650.
Rocky and I try to stop and say a prayer there everytime we go through Aquia, Virginia.

Has the ACLU ever sued to have it torn down?

No, but I suspect they will someday.

I have a little town near me with a BVM in the Town Square!

It's really on land owned by St. Anthony's Parish in San Antonio Florida.

The first time I saw it I gasped with amazement!

(I should post a photo on my Blog.)

Would you please consider labeling all your travel postings?

BTW One dream I have is to go to Baltimore and Washington D.C.
Would you consider posting your very Favorite places to stop/visit/eat? Especially Balitimore.

Well, when I figure out the mysteries of Blogger I may do that. The best place in Baltimore are the Basilica. You must go. It's beautiful and kneeling on the floor with the Blessed Sacrament in the crypt is undescribable. I don't like the Cathedral much but most people enjoy visiting it as well. Go to the St. Jude Shrine and if they are open stop by St. Alphonsus and St. Vincent dePaul. As for food, you can not go wrong anywhere in Little Italy.
