Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, Protector of Christians
Last edited 7th October 2015

On October 7, the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the yearly feast of Our Lady of the Rosary - a feast day to pray for the protection of Christians around the world. Known for several centuries by the alternate title of “Our Lady of Victory,” the feast day takes place in honor of a 16th century naval victory which secured Europe against Turkish invasion. Pope St. Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was invoked on the day of the battle through a campaign to pray the Rosary throughout Europe.

Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows - 15 September
Last edited 17th September 2015

Devotion to the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady has its roots in Sacred Scripture and in Christian piety, which always associates the Blessed Mother with her suffering Son. Today's feast was introduced by the Servites in order to intensify devotion to Our Lady's Sorrows. In 1817 Pius VII — suffering grievously in exile but finally liberated by Mary's intercession — extended the feast to the universal Church.
