Our Lady of the Rosary - Victory at Lepanto

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary whose intercession was so important to the victory of the Christian fleet against a superior Turkish naval force. The victory was so amazing and decisive it is still studied in naval warfare to this day.

Being that it is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary I thought it would be a good reminder to encourage everyone to join The Rosary Confraternity, entrusted to the Dominican Order by the Holy See more than 500 years ago.

As Pope Leo XIII said in an encyclical, "whenever a person fulfills his obligation of reciting the Rosary according to the rule of the Confraternity, he includes in his intentions all its members, and they in turn render him the same service many times over."
