Question by Gloria: what battle was named after a church?
Answer by HereIAmLord Just 1 is: The Battle of San Jacinto:
What does “San Jacinto” mean?
The English translation of San Jacinto is Saint Hyacinth. St. Hyacinth was a 12th century Dominican missionary who spread Christianity through northern Europe. The Battle of San Jacinto takes its name from its location near the San Jacinto River.
There are two versions of how the river was named: the first is that the river may have been discovered on St. Hyacinth’s Day, August 17. The second is that when the river was discovered, passage up the river was blocked by water hyacinths, an aquatic plant.

A deeply informed look at the intensifying struggle over the future of the Catholic Church.
Robert Blair Kaiser examines the most important and divisive issues confronting the Church: the sex abuse scandal, a shortage of priests due to the insistence upon celibacy, the ban on contraception, the roles of women in the Church, the increased participation of laypeople in Church affairs. He gives us an in-depth and behind-the-scenes view of six of the cardinals who gathered in Rome in April 2005 to choose a new pope and through them makes clear why Catholics worldwide are increasingly leaving the Church or defying Church doctrine. With passion and heartfelt concern, Robert Blair Kaiser brilliantly illuminates the issues and the combatants in the battle for the soul of the Catholic world.
