The Most Holy Name of Mary -- Feast: Sep. 12
Pope Innocent XI, who instituted the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary in thanksgiving for the Battle of Vienna on September 11,1683, was Beatified by Pope Pius XII in 1956. His body was found to be incorrupt, if memory serves.

It's also worthy to mention that the Ottoman Turks were routed at the Battle of Zenta on September 11, 1697, by Prince Eugene of Savoy, who also took part in the Battle of Vienna 14 years earlier.

Beatae Maria Virginae, ora pro nobis!

What better way to commemorate my 2000th post here at FE! (I'd  hoped it would be about Fatima, but I'll take this!)

The next two Marian Feasts coming up are Our Lady of Sorrows (September 15) and Our Lady of La Salette (September 19, which is also the Feast Day of St. Januarius, aka San Gennaro, whose blood liquefies every year on that day.)
