Pope John XXIII died in 1963. The name of the feast was changed to its current ordinary Latin status in 1969. I highly doubt Pope John Paul XXIII changed it from the grave ;)

It was changed in 1960 :-) as can be seen in a 1961 altar missal.  Alternatively, you can look in the document Variationes in Breviario et Missali romano, no 12. I couldn't find the text fo this online in Latin or English but this seems to be a French version

But then again this was done by Pope Paul VI who actually gave the banners taken at Lepanto back to the Turks. Unfortunately I can only conclude he did this for what we now call "PC reasons."

I always thought of Our Lady of Victory as Our Lady assisting us in ALL battles both temporal and Spiritual. I know it was to commemorate Lapanto but this is sort of how I took it. Being that it was Pope Paul VI the worst Pope of the Church who changed this and since he did give the muhommadan headhunters their banners back I am inclined to believe he did it for false ecumenical reasons. :pazzo:
