Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Aire
There is much still to be said about the relationships that Pope Francis
maintains with Jesus, Mary and Joseph, as well as St. Francis of Assisi,
St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. Francis Xavier.
Like Los Angeles, Buenos Aires (the Holy Father's hometown)
has found it advantageous to shorten its official name,
by dropping the words relating to the Blessed Mother:
LA was "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of Angels"
BA was Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Aire
Mary and the Barque of Peter:
the Haven for Refugees
bringing her ship
safely into port.
St. John Bosco,
Pray for us!
Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:

O Beata Trinitas;
