The month of October is dedicated to our Lady of the Rosary. Today’s feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Rosary was instituted to honour and to thank Our Lady for the protection the Church experienced through her in the victories of the Christian armies against the Turks at Lepanto on the 7th October, 1571. The faith that Church expresses through this feast is that Mary is the Protectress of the Church. The Rosary as we know is nothing but faith-contemplation of Christ’s life, death and glorification and of Mary’s intimate association with Jesus. Rosary expresses 3 mysteries: Incarnation, Mary at the Cross, Pentecost. The Rosary is sure means for preserving the home and strengthening family life.
I wish A very happy feast to Srs.Joanna Mary and Rosary.
