Our Lady of the Rosary
At Mass this morning I had the opportunity to tell all the students the exciting story of the Battle of Lepanto, and of the part our Blessed Mother had on that October 7th morning, back in 1571. God intervened in a marvellous way, as the rosary was prayed fervently throughout Europe. Click here to read the marvellous story.
This afternoon the school gathered again for Solemn Evensong and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, as we once more honored our Lady, and gave thanks to God for His marvellous blessings.
