Rosary Halted and Routed Nuclear Bomb, Communist and Islamic Invaders

- Overcoming Militant Islamic Invaders
1571 - The Battle of Lepanto


The victory at Lepanto is the most famous and important of the military victories through the Rosary.

On October 7, 1571 the Turk's attempted to invade Christian Europe at Lepanto on the coast of Greece.

The Pope asked Catholics to pray the Rosary with the intention that the Turk's attack would fail.

The Christians were out numbered 3 to 1.

Thanks to the Rosary prayers and against all odds, the Christians were victorious, sinking 200 Turkish ships and killing 50,000 of their men.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is now celebrated on October 7th every year in memory of this miraculous victory.

This famed battle inspired G.K. Chesterton, a renowned author to write the poem entitled, "Lepanto" chronicling the exciting events of that day.

You can also listen to the story of Lepanto in the brand new CD set Lepanto: Battle That Saved The West. Christopher Check tells the exhilarating story of Lepanto, first in his own words and then through the poem of G.K. Chesterton.

American Military Victories Through The Rosary
1815 - The Battle of New Orleans, America

The Triumph at New Orleans is the first of the military victories through the Rosary to take place American soil.

During the Revolutionary War, Andrew Jackson led a small army to victory despite being greatly out numbered.

What did he have to thank for this victory?

The Rosary.

During the battle many of the soldiers' families gathered and prayed the Rosary.

They were confident the power of the Rosary would bring victory despite the overwhelming odds and their faith was rewarded.

If you are interested in the role catholics played in the founding of america and the revolutionary war a good place to start is with this book, Charles Carroll of Carrollton - Faithful Revolutionary. it tells about the life and times of founding father and roman catholic, charles carroll.


Modern Military Victories Through The Rosary
1945 - Hiroshima, Japan


A priest and seven others survived the nuclear bomb that was dropped on Japan and had devastating effects during the Second World War.

Even though they lived near ground zero, much to scientists amazement these survivors were free from all harm caused by radiation even years later.

What was different about this group of people compared to other nearby victims?

Devotion to the Rosary.

They prayed the Rosary together daily.

Description of Fatima: The Great Sign by Francis Johnston

"When the atomic bomb destroyed Hiroshima in 1945, eight men living near the blinding centre of the nuclear flash miraculously survived the searing hurricane of blast and gamma rays, while everyone within a mile radius perished and other residing further afield continue to die from the lethal effects of radiation.
For over thirty years, some two hundred scientists have examined these eight men, trying in vain to determine what could have preserved them from incineration. One of the survivors, Fr. H. Shiffner, S.J. gave this dramatic answer: 'In that house, we were living the message of Fatima.'"


More Modern Military Victories Through The Rosary
1955 - Austria

Facing the threat of Communist take over, the Austrian people prayed the Rosary to overcome what seemed like the inevitable.

Everyday for 7 years, many Austrians prayed the Rosary.

Then without cause, the Communists withdrew.

Fatima: The Great Sign by Francis Johnston also recounts this military victory through the Rosary. Johnston sites many examples: Austria (1955), Brazil (1966), Chile and Portugal (1975). While no nation on earth seems able to stem the global advance of Communism (which our Lady had foretold with unerring accuracy in 1917), nevertheless, in those countries where people prayed the Rosary and headed the Fatima message, the Communist, even at the last moment, mysteriously halted and routed.

More Modern Military Victories Through The Rosary
1966 and 1975

Both Brazil in 1966 and Portugal in 1975 were spared Communist rule by through the Rosary's power and are considered a major triumphant military victory through the Rosary.


"In 1961 the stage was set to take over Brazil...But guess who thwarted this Communist takeover?

The women of Brazil with their rosaries!

"Without the women", said one of the leaders of the counterrevolution, "we could never have halted Brazil's plunge toward Communism."

"One night in mid-1962, Dona Amelia Bastos listened to her husband and a band of anti-Reds discuss the looming threat of Communism. I suddenly decided, she said, that politics had become too important to be left entirely to men...Moreover, who has more at stake what's happening to our country than we women?"

She formed CAMDE (Campaign of Women for Democracy): In Belo Horizonte 20,000 women reciting the rosary aloud broke up the leftist meeting there. In Sao Paulo, 600,000 women praying the rosary in one of the most moving demonstrations in Brazilian history, sounded death knell of the Communist revolution.

These women with rosaries in their hands or around their necks, issued a 1300 word proclamation:

This nation which God has given us, immense and marvelous as it is, is in extreme danger. We have allowed men of limitless ambition, without Christian faith or scruples to bring our people misery, destroying our economy, disturbing our social peace, to create hate and despair. They have infiltrated our nation, our government, our armed forces and even our churches...

Mother of God, preserve us from the fate of suffering of the martyred women of Cuba, Poland, Hungary and other enslaved nations!"

-Excerpts taken from "The Power of the Rosary", pp. 31-32

The Power of the Rosary by Albert J.M Shamon is a hard book to find but we have found the best place that specializes in rare and out of print books. You can search for a copy of it here.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
