Quote of the day: 9 November

May the Virgin of Carmel, whose statues overlook the rías that make up the beauty of this land of Galicia, always accompany you. May She be the star that guides you, the one that never disappears from your horizon. The one who leads you to God, to the safe harbor.

Saint John Paul II

Address to Maritime Workers
Santiago de Compostela, Spain
9 November 1982


The monument to the ‘Universal Navy’ at Monteferro, Nigrán in Spain—overlooking the Ría de Vigo—features a grand statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the patroness of the Spanish Navy. The Latin inscription, “Hail, Queen of the Seas” evokes the patronage of Our Lady over all sailors and maritime workers
