“The vast majority of Meso-American Indians clung to the gods and customs of their old religion,”
This included rituals of human sacrifice that had gone on for centuries. When Cortes arrived in Tenochtitlan, he found an estimated 100,000 human skulls.
Cortes, aided by our Lady, was truly a hero.
Cortez was baptized in the Pila of Our Lady of Guadalupe, he himself brought this icon/image to Mexico. I’ve been to Medellin, to the place where he was baptized, it was a Spainish Virgen, Mexicans all think it was MEXICAN lady. How far from the truth! Juan Diego is actually a thumbnail of Hernan Cortez, Chichameca Indians don’t have goatees...!!!
Wiping out he Aztecs was one of the greatest services Spain ever performed. It is very analagous to Americans rolling into Nazi death camps.
Cortes was a monster from the pit of hell, a mass murderer, and the absolute shame of the Catholic Church.
I hope that was clear.
