This Novena Could Change Your Life!
In October of 1571, the fate of Europe and the future of Christianity were in great peril. That year, the Ottoman Turks occupied Constantinople, the once great capital of the Holy Roman Empire in the East.
As the naval forces of Spain, Austria, and the Papal States began to work together, the
Holy Father begged Catholics to pray the Rosary, seeking Our Blessed Mother’s intercession to secure victory. As the ships engaged in the Battle of Lepanto, countless ordinary men and women across Europe earnestly, desperately prayed the Rosary. And those Rosaries did what no army alone could achieve: they sent the Ottoman Navy away in total defeat!
Celebrate the Feast of the Holy Rosary with a special Novena of Masses at the Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude, beginning on September 29th and concluding on October 7th!
