Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
“Like the early Christian martyrs, like Christ himself in Gethsemane, the laity of Europe was praying for help against those who would kill them happily, and kill them horribly, in hatred of the Faith.” Dr Kevin Johnson, The Rosary. (h/t Catholic Phoenix)
That Turkish invasion of Europe is now nearly complete. It took a few centuries but European lassitude accomplished what Ali Pasha and his fleet could not. The invaders have formed insulated colonies from which they are able to conduct forays into the general population with near impunity. The center of these colonies are the rabats, citadels from which imams preach their messages of subjugation through jihad. And the people of Europe have largely stripped themselves of the vigor and virtue to resist. There are few who consider the Faith something worth dying for. But they need not be killed except for the most symbolic of reasons. They will merely lie down and accept the humiliation of dimmhitude.
There shouldn't be any doubt about what that proposed "cultural center" at Ground Zero in New York is about. It is a attempt at rabat triumphalism. May Americans have the moral courage to pray, to repent of our national sins and to humble ourselves beneath the mighty hand of God, that He may lift us up in due time. And may Catholics pray for the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary, whose feast is celebrated today because the Holy League, led by Don John of Austria, and the whole of Christendom, led by Pope Pius V, prayed the rosary without ceasing until the Battle of Lepanto was won.See Also:
