October: Month of the Holy Rosary


October is the month of the Holy Rosary. The founder of the Order of Preachers, Saint Dominic de Guzman, is said to have an apparition of Our Lady, who gave him the Holy Rosary to help him battle heresy and lead souls back to the Catholic faith.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is on the 7th of October. It was instituted after the Christians were victorious over the Turks in the Battle of Lepanto, October 7th, 1571, though the Catholic forces were greatly outnumbered. Pope Saint Pius V, who was also known as the “Pope of the Rosary” attributed their victory to the intercession of Our Lady due to the Papal campaign across Europe, for the faithful to pray the rosary on the day of the battle, asking Our Lady for the triumph of the church. In thanksgiving of this miracle, the feast was instituted. It was originally known as “Our Lady of Victory” but the feast was changed to Our Lady of the Rosary in honour of the spiritual weapon used to help win the battle against the invasion.

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
