Among the most important titles we have in the Catholic Church for the Blessed Virgin Mary are Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of the Rosary.
These titles can be traced back to one of the most decisive times in the history of the world and Christendom. The Battle of Lepanto took place on October 7 (date of feast of Our Lady of Rosary), 1571. This proved to be the most crucial battle for the Christian forces against the radical Muslim navy of Turkey.
Pope Pius V led a procession around St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City praying the Rosary. He showed true pastoral leadership in recognizing the danger posed to Christendom by the radical Muslim forces, and in using the means necessary to defeat it. Spiritual
battles require spiritual weapons, and this more than anything was a battle that
had its origins in the spiritual order—a true battle between good and evil.
Today we have a similar spiritual battle in progress—a battle
between the forces of good and evil, light and darkness, truth and lies, life

disinterested spectator to the affairs of man. Life begins at conception.

A single abortion is homicide. The more than 48,000,000
abortions since Roe v. Wade in the United States constitute genocide by
definition. The group singled out for death—unwanted, unborn
No other issue, not all other issues taken together, can
constitute a proportionate reason for voting for candidates that intend to
preserve and defend this holocaust of innocent human life that is
I strongly urge every one of you to make a Novena and pray
the Rosary to Our Lady of Victory between October 27th and Election Day,
November 4th. Pray that God’s will be done and the most innocent and utterly
vulnerable of our brothers and sisters will be protected from this barbaric and
grossly sinful blight on society that is abortion. No woman, and no man, has the
right to choose to murder an innocent human being.
May God grant us the wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and counsel to form our conscience in accordance with authentic Catholic teaching, and then vote that well-formed
