October - Month of the Rosary
The feast of the Holy Rosary was established by Saint Pius V on the anniversary of the naval victory won by the Catholic fleet over Islam at Lepanto, October 7, 1571. The victory was attributed to the direct intervention of the Blessed Mother, through the prayers of the Holy Rosary.
The power of the Rosary and the courage of the Catholic navies obtained a historic triumph over the Turks, and saved Christendom from the advancing Turkish power.
Today, we desperately need Our Lady’s intervention through the Holy Rosary to turn back the moral, spiritual and physical threat we face as a nation.
Our Lady will overcome all these threats if we turn to Her in confident prayer and courageous action, just like She saved Christendom in 1571.
