The Holy Name of Mary and the Defense of Christendom

September 12, 2014

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.

This battle and the Battle of Lepanto are signs that Mary does truly care for her children. Pray for all persecuted Christians and for all who honor the holy name of Mariam.
