Our Lady of the Rosary

The 7th of October is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. It was formerly known as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory and Feast of the Holy Rosary.

The feast was started by Pope St Pius V, who attributed the Christian victory over the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto on the 7th of October 1571 to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Pope had led a campaign asking the faithful in Europe to pray the rosary for the triumph of the Church. The victory was seen as a miracle as the Catholic forces were greatly outnumbered in the battle. The feast name was changed from Our Lady of Victory to Our Lady of the Rosary to recognise the Rosary as a spiritual weapon which the Virgin Mary used to save Catholic Europe from 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.
