PAGE 6 Feast of Our by Bennett Molinari OST-GAZETTE, Lady of the Rosary and Richard Molinari OCTOBER 7, 2016 The development of the rosary has a long history. In the begin- ning, a practice began of pray- ing 150 Our Fathers in imitation of the 150 Psalms. Then there was a parallel practice of pray- ing 150 Hail Mary's. The develop- ment of this prayer form of the rosary owes much to the follow- ers of Saint Dominic. One of them, Alan de la Roche, was known as "the apostle of the rosary." He founded the first Confraternity of the Rosary in the 154 centu- ry. In the 16m century, the rosa- ry was developed to its present form -- with the 15 mys- teries (Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious). In 2002, Pope St. John Paul II added five Mysteries of Light to this devotion. It is believed that Heaven has on many occasions rewarded the faith of those who had recourse to the recitation of the rosary in times of special danger. The naval victory of Lepanto gained by Spanish Admiral Don Juan of Austria is attributed to the recita- tion of the rosary. Knowing that the Christian forces were at a dis- tinct disadvantage, Pope Plus V called for all of Europe to pray the Rosary for victory, and led a rosary procession in Rome. After about five hours of fighting on the northern edge of the Gulf of Corinth off western Greece, the combined navies of the Papal States, Genoa and Spain managed to stop the Ottoman navy, {300 Turkish ships had been captured or sunk}. The Pontiffwas moved to institute the feast now celebrated univer- sally as Our Lady of the Rosary. The defeat of the Ottomans at Lepanto slowed the Ottoman ad- vance to the west, denying them access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Americas. The day of the victory, October 7% was declared by Pope Pius V the Feast Day of Our Lady of Victory in recognition of Our Lady's intercession in answer to the recitation of the Rosary throughout Catholic Europe. In 1573, Pope Gregory XIII changed the title of the "Feast of Our Lady of Victory" to "Feast of the Holy Rosary." Pope Clement XI extended the feast to the whole of the Universal Church, insert- ing it into the General Roman Calendar in 1716, and assigning it to the first Sunday in October. Pope St. Pius X changed the date to October 7m in 1913. In 1960, Pope St. John XXIII changed the title to "Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary" celebrated on October 7m. A "Turkish victory at Lepanto would have been a catastrophe of the first magnitude for Christendom," wrote military historian John F. Guilmartin, Jr., "and Europe would have followed a his- Happy Columbus Day/ from . INC. Uff. M.
