…And the 438th Anniversary of the great victory over the Mohammedans at Lepanto. If you haven’t read G.K. Chesterton’s epic poem Lepanto, you really should.

..And, as I mentioned earlier this week, the first anniversary of the elevation of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest to the status of a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right.

…And, my brother’s birthday, too.

Thanks to God and Our Lady for all blessings!

Prayer to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, in these times of such brazen impiety, manifest thy power with the signs of thine ancient victories, and from thy throne, whence thou dost dispense pardon and graces, mercifully regard the Church of thy Son, His Vicar on earth, and every order of clergy and laity, who are sore oppressed in the mighty conflict. Do thou, who art the powerful vanquisher of all heresies, hasten the hour of mercy, even though the hour of God’s justice is every day provoked by the countless sins of men. For me who am the least of men, kneeling before thee in supplication, do thou obtain the grace I need to live righteously upon the earth and to reign among the just in Heaven, the while in company with all faithful Christians throughout the world, I salute thee and acclaim thee as Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Amen.
