RELIGION - Pray the rosary.  October 7 is the feast day of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Tradition tells us, the mother of God appeared to St. Dominic and asked him to propagate devotion of the Holy Rosary.

The decisive victory of the Christians at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 prompted Pope Pius V to institute this feast and decree that the blessed Virgin Mary be invoked as “Help of Christians” as she is today.
