Saint Pius V established this feast in 1573. The purpose was to thank God for the victory of Christians over the Turks at Lepanto—a victory attributed to the praying of the rosary. Clement XI extended the feast to the universal Church in 1716.
The Kingdom of God community together with our dear older sisters and associates in Mexico City, we all made a Living Rosary to celebrate and thank for the CCVI 150 years on October, 3.
“One day, with the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world.” (Blessed Virgin Mary)
