Covadonga!

This is the Marian shrine for Asturias. It is dedicated to Our Lady of Covadonga, in whose honor the Spanish king Pelayo halted the Muslim invaders who had conquered the rest of Spain. There was a great symbol carved all over Covadonga of an "M" over a crescent.

I'm thinking we should be propagating this devotion lots more these days....
