Happy Feast of the Our Lady of the Rosary! ... See MoreSee Less

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. This feast day takes place in honor of a 16th century naval victory that secured Europe against Turkish invasion. Pope St. Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was invoked on the day of the battle through a campaign to pray the Rosary throughout Europe. Blessed Frederic named Mary as the patroness of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the rosary is an important devotion to its members.
