Friends of the Rosary,

Today is the Memorial of St. Pius V (1504-1572), a Pope known for his deep prayer, fasting, and love for the truth.

As Pius V, he worked to implement the Tridentine reforms, promulgated the first Roman Catechism, and formalized the mysteries of the Rosary.

He organized European monarchs to defend Christendom against the Ottoman Empire, culminating in the victory at the Battle of Lepanto in 1572, which he credited to the Rosary.

To Protestantism, which had proclaimed the Reformation, St. Pius replied by applying the decrees of the Council of Trent for the reform of the Church.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
St. Pius V, Pray for Us!

To Jesus through Mary!

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
