October is the month of the Holy Rosary. Today’s Feast was originally known as Our Lady of Victory because
” On October 7, 1571, a major victory over the mighty Turkish fleet was prevailed by Catholic naval forces principally from Spain, Venice, and Genoa under the command of Don juan of Austria. It was the last battle at sea between “oared” sends, which featured the most powerful navy in the world, a Moslem force with between 12,000 to 15,000 Christian slaves as rowers. The patchwork crew of Catholic ships was powered by the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary”( Fr Ladis J. Cizik, Blue Army National Executive Director ).
Fr. Cizik justifies,” the feast of October 7th was renamed’ Our Lady of the Rosary’ and extended throughout the Universal Church by Pope Clement XI in 1716.”
In all Her figures at Fatima, Portugal, the Blessed Mother frequently underlined the importance of praying the Rosary daily and performing acts of reparation and sacrifice. Our Lady of Fatima requested the solemn public Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart by the Pope and all the Catholic bishops of the world.
