It is time for all Christians to respond to the war that has been declared first on Christendom and now on Christianity itself, as the demonic old world order rises up once again in defiance to Christ the King. Knowing that the Christian forces were at a distinct material disadvantage, the holy pontiff, St. Pope Pius V called for all of Europe to pray the Rosary for victory. Pius V instituted “Our Lady of Victory” as an annual feast to commemorate the victory at Lepanto, which he attributed to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Saint Pius V is considered as an icon of true faith, orthodoxy (correct teaching) and orthopraxy (correct practice). A prominent papal bull such as QUO PRIMUM – Apostolic Constitution of His Holiness Pope Saint Pius V on the Celebration of Masses,– will definitely remind us of our duties to God.

Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium tuum, &c. R. Amen.||O God, who to the destruction of the enemies of Thy Church, and to the restoration of Thy holy worship, didst vouchsafe to elect blessed Pius to be Thy high-Priest; grant us so to be defended by his protection, and so to remain steadfast in Thy service, that overcoming the snares of all our enemies, we may enjoy perpetual peace.
