OPINION: Use the rosary to defeat ISIS
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, a powerful means of combating error and vice.
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.
The great Don Juan of Austria, son of Charles V, sailed to meet the Turkish fleet. Catholics were outnumbered by the Turks but Pope Pius V was praying the rosary, along with most of his faithful, and he knew from the Vatican that the Christians had won the battle of Lepanto. Ali Pasha, commander of the Turkish fleet, and all the rest of the Muslims were killed, 25,000 in number and 15,000 Christians in the Moslem galleys were liberated from their control.
There are several other situations where the rosary came into prayer as a powerful weapon to defeat the enemies of religion. Another wonderful time was in Austria. Again only 10 percent of them prayed the rosary every day for seven years and the Russians pulled out of their country of Austria. This was a most recent example of the power of the rosary, without bloodshed, on May 13, 1955.
So don’t you now believe it’s a nice idea to have your rosary handy, so you can pray for the conversion of those who are members of Lucifer’s religion?
You might be fortunate enough to have the assistance of one of the angels who serve Mary in heaven.
Even this threat of ISIS today can be eliminated with the humble recitation of the most holy rosary!
