October: Month of the Holy Rosary

October is the month of the Holy Rosary. The founder of the Order of Preachers, Saint Dominic de Guzman, is said to have an apparition of Our Lady, who gave him the Holy Rosary to help him battle heresy and lead souls back to the Catholic faith.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is on the 7th of October. It was instituted after the Christians were victorious over the Turks in the Battle of Lepanto, October 7th, 1571, though the Catholic forces were greatly outnumbered. Pope Saint Pius V, who was also known as the “Pope of the Rosary” attributed their victory to the intercession of Our Lady due to the Papal campaign across Europe, for the faithful to pray the rosary on the day of the battle, asking Our Lady for the triumph of the church. In thanksgiving of this miracle, the feast was instituted. It was originally known as “Our Lady of Victory” but the feast was changed to Our Lady of the Rosary in honour of the spiritual weapon used to help win the battle against the invasion.

Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
