The Church designates October as month of the Holy Rosary! During this month the faithful venerate the Blessed Virgin Mary especially under her title of Our Lady of the Rosary. We also make special effort to honor the Holy Rosary with group recitations and rosary processions. St. Dominic de Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers, is the saint to whom Our Lady famously appeared. Mary gave the prayers of the Holy Rosary to assist him as a spiritual weapon in combating heresy and leading souls back to the one, true Catholic faith.
