Today we celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary. This feast was instituted by Pope St. Pius V in thanksgiving for the great naval victory over the Turks at the battle of Lepanto on this day in the year 1570, a favor due to the recitation of the Rosary. This victory saved Europe from being overrun by the forces of Islam. Pray the Rosary, or 5 decades of the Rosary tonight with your family.
Saint John Paul II quote about praying the rosary-do it whenever and wherever it works for you. One does not have to be in a church or religious setting to pray. Do not be ashamed to have faith in front of others.
This birthstone rosary for the month of November features aurora Citrine color crystals. The rosary is created using gold tone links with aura borealis coated clear beads which have been used for decades. The Mary medallion is framed in the shape of a lily. The crucifix is accented with delicate gold tone filigree.
