Besieged Christians and the Holy Name of Mary

September 12, 2018

Litanies, always remind me of a march towards a battle on the horizon. I always hear Sousa and the drums, each title and invocation, a horn blast.

Devoted to Our Lady, on September 11th of 1683, King John Sobieski of Poland frees a besieged Vienna and saves Europe from invasion. In humility he proclaimed, “I came. I saw. God Conquered.”

Pope Innocent XI extended the feast of the Holy Name of Mary to the universal Church as a solemn thanksgiving for the relief of Vienna, when it was besieged by the Turks, poised to invade Europe.

This battle and that of the Battle of Lepanto are signs that Mary does truly care for her children.

Pray for all persecuted Christians, authentic refugees of war, and for all who honor the holy name of Mariam.

Mary, Mother of the Living God, pray for us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please say this beautiful litany today and remember that we are the Ecclesia Militans, comprised of Christians on earth who are living; who struggle against sin, the devil and “..the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12);
