The Greatest Sea Battle in History: Lepanto, October 1571, the Battle that saved Europe.
On October 7th we give Honor to Our Lady of the Rosary.. the Victory of the Rosary.

The feast of the Holy Rosary was instituted by Pope Pius V to celebrate the anniversary of the defeat of the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto on the first Sunday in October 1571, which ended the threat of Muslim domination of the Mediterranean and was ascribed in part to the prayers and processions of the Rosary confraternity in Rome.
Later the feast was moved to the fixed date of 7 October.
