Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary
The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary was instituted to honor Mary for the Christian victory over the Turks at Lepanto on October 7, 1571. Pope St. Pius V and all Christians had prayed the Rosary for victory.
Collect: Lord, fill our hearts with your love, and as you revealed to us by an angel the coming of your Son as man, so lead us through his suffering and death to the glory of his resurrection, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is also our Sister, Sister M. Noreen’s feast day. Please join us in prayer for her and her intentions today. On a Sister’s feast day & birthday our communities’ custom is to each offer one day of prayers, works, joys, & sufferings for the Sister; it is called a “Franciscan day”.
Sister Noreen, may our Lord grant you every grace and consolation on this your feast day. Our prayers are with you!
Blessings on all who read this!
Sister M. Veronica, OSF
