Pope Clement XI


Pope Clement XI

“Clement XI, has “decreed that the Blessed Mother of God should every year be especially honored in her Rosary by the whole Church.” 1

1 Leo XIII, Supremi Apostolatus Officio, 4
By Bull of October 3, 1716, Clement XI has directed the observance of the feast of the Rosary (October 7) by all Christendom and inscribed it on the universal calendar, in gratitude for the victory gained on August 5, under the auspices of Our Lady of the Snow. This victory was followed by the raising of the siege of Corfu, and completed a year later by the taking of Belgrade.”
