Friday, October 5, 2012

On October 7th in the year 1571, ships from the Holy League, an alliance of Christian states, defeated the fleet of the Ottoman Empire.  The stunning victory was credited to the Virgin Mary, whose intercession had been sought.  In her honor, Pius V instituted the feast day of Our Lady of Victory, now celebrated as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.  

On Monday, October 8th, at 7:30 pm, Ambassador Michael Novak will deliver a public lecture and presentation on this famed sea battle and its significance.  All are welcome.
