October 7: Lepanto...

Leonardo da Sarzana sculpted this lovely statue of Pope St. Pius V, seated and crowned with his hand raised in benediction, located in Rome above his tomb.
"St. Pius V attributed the winning of Lepanto, which decided the future of Europe, to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin."
St. Pius V by Robin Anderson

The Venetian Senate: "It was not generals nor battalions nor arms that brought us victory; but it was Our Lady of the Rosary."
