A Story of Diego Mendez
Footsteps of the Saints Series
Diego Mendez sailed to America with Christopher Columbus on his final voyage. Without his help Columbus would not have been able to return to Spain after this last voyage. Diego risked his life on several occasions to serve his well-loved friend Christopher Columbus. In all his trials he prayed and placed his faith In God. He loved God and the Catholic Church and was always an example of piety to others. His life teaches us we must place our faith and complete trust in God in all our trials regardless of how difficult the task awaiting us seems to be. Has Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur
