As the day dawned over Lepanto, in Rome Pius V called the faithful to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. *There he led the people to pray the Rosary and ask the Mother of God to intercede on behalf of Christian Europe. Throughout the morning prayers were offered for the victory of the Christian fleet. Near noon the Pope is said to have had a vision of the victorious Christian fleet and shouted in joy, “Our great task at present is to thank God for the victory which He has just given us.” To this day, October 7th is celebrated by Catholics as the Feast of the Holy Rosary. *Keep the faith!
