Shameless self promotion, I know, but here are the three articles and one video I posted on my blog today in remembrance of the Battle of Lepanto, with the introductory comments.


Lepanto, 1571: The Battle that Saved Europe


Today is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, originally instituted as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory, by St Pius V in honour of the victory of the Christian navies under Don Juan of Austria, against the jihadist fleet of the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto. Our Lady of Victory, pray for us! Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

LEPANTO! "The highest moment that the centuries ever witnessed." All Hail the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary!


The quote in the title is from Miguel de Cervantes who was wounded in the battle. He was seriously ill with fever, but refused to stay below decks, saying he would rather die for his God and king than keep under cover. 

The following is an excerpt from Fausto appetente die, Encyclical of Pope Benedict XV on St Dominic.

Battle of Lepanto, 1571: What REALLY Happened


A very good video on the Battle of Lepanto, from a favourite YouTube channel of mine, Real Crusades History. A few details about the jihadists of the 'Religion of Peace', including skinning a man alive.

I'm a day late... but Our Lady of Victory homeschool put out this nice little newsletter for October. They called it the "Lepanto Issue" in commemoration.
