Corona, More Than Just a Beer

June 24, 2014 | 2 Comments

To many, Corona is just a brand of beer. A brand of Mexican beer where you put a lime in the bottle and enjoy on a hot day. But did you know that Corona is actually a Catholic term?


In the Concise Catholic Dictionary of 1943 (seriously, this book is worth its weight in gold) has three different definitions for the term Corona.

  1. Five mysteries of the Rosary.
  2. Candles or vigil lights arranged in a circle.
  3. The circlet of hair on the head of a tonsured cleric.
St. Anthony always had a Corona on him.

Just too cool if you ask me. Make sure you do a Corona every single day. A Corona of the Rosary that is.

  1. So I thought I was pretty clever after reading this and turned to my daughter to show off. I said, “SO do you know what a Corona is?” Thinking she would know the beer from seeing her Dad with it.
    She said, “Crown. It’s Latin for crown”
    I guess paying for four years of Homeschool Latin has paid off!
