Ave Maria, Pray for us. Happy Feast to all. October 7 marks the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary and celebrates the intercession of Mother Mary through the holy Rosary prayers. On this auspicious day, Catholic Churches hold a special mass dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mother.
The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary dates back to the 16th century and commemorates the miraculous Christian naval victory at the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571. Pope Pius V attributed this victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary through the recitation of the Rosary. The feast comes as a reminder of the power of prayer and the importance of seeking Mary's intercession.
The Rosary, which provides protection from evil and blesses people with Mother Mary's grace and guidance, consists of five decades, each representing a mystery from the lives of Jesus and Mary. It comes along three sets of mysteries where devotees choose to pray either all of them or anyone. (Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious)
