Extract from The History of the Feast of Our Lady of Victory: “How did this extraordinary victory come about? The answer is simple enough: It was obtained – yet again – by the most powerful weapon known to men: the holy rosary- the chaplet of the Blessed Virgin Mary given to St. Dominic in the XIIIth century. In preparation for this battle, one of the greatest naval battles of Roman Christendom, the Pope, St. Pius V, (himself a Dominican friar) ordered that the holy rosary be prayed throughout the length and breadth of Christendom – just as was later to be done before the Battle of Vienna in 1683. As a result, the feast of Our Lady of Victory (later our Lady of the Rosary) was instituted by the popes to be celebrated on October 7th for an everlasting memory of this great victory.” See PICTURE of Our Lady of Victory.
