Our Lady of the Rosary

Today is the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary and October is the month of the Rosary. We decorated our home altar in blue and added some roses from the garden. The altar is located in our living room and it is a way to keep us ever mindful of our faith.
A Dominican pope, Pius V, established today's feast. It is to show our gratitude to Mary for a military victory over the Turks at Lepanto on October 7, 1571.
