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

    Hi Sr.Veronica, , tell Sr. Noreen that she is in my prayers. It is nice to learn the customs of the sisters when it is another sister feast day or birthday. I know this isn’t the place to ask this but I was talking to one of the gals who gets the speakers for the Senior Saints who meet once a month and on the first Wednesday about the misson program that the hospital does and I know some of the people that comes out there to Caterer Inn have been retired some time and wasn’t there to see the program. Who do we contact to come to present it to the group? Thanks for help,Ann

    Hello Ann,

    Thank you so much for your prayers. About that question, we are in the process of researching it and will email you with some information soon, hopefully.
