Feast of the Holy Rosary, October 7
The apparition of Mary that was granted to Saint Dominic became known as Our Lady of the Rosary. On October 7, 1571, confronted and outnumbered by the fleet of the Ottoman Empire, the naval fleet of the Holy League prayed the Rosary earnestly, at the request of Pope Pius V. The Christian Holy League won a surprising, even miraculous victory, which saved Christianity in the west. The Holy Father attributed this intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary to this victory. Pope Pius then instituted a feast of Our Lady to thank her for intercession in the battle.
