The Litany to Our Blessed Lady of Liberation and Victories

In 1571 Pope Pius V instituted “Our Lady of Victory” as an annual feast in thanksgiving for Mary’s patronage in the victory of the Holy League over the Muslim Turks in the Battle of Lepanto. Two years later, in 1573, Pope Gregory XIII changed the title of this feast day to Feast of the Holy Rosary. And in 1716, Pope Clement XI extended the feast to the whole of the Latin Rite, inserting it into the Roman Catholic Calendar and assigning it to the first Sunday in October. In 1913, Pope Pius X changed the date to October 7, as part of his effort to restore celebration of the liturgy of the Sundays.

Our Lady is victorious over satan and the power of sin to bring the sinner to despair. She defeats all heresies and she is also triumphant in the military battle in the defense of Christianity.

These days, unlike those at the time of Lepanto, we have forces of satan within the Catholic Church, as well as outside. May Our Lady of Victory triumph over satan once again, crush his hateful head and restore all things to Christ.

The Litany of Our Lady of Victories is written by Pope Pius XI, and found in the “Apostolic Digest”, published by TAN Books. This Litany is always prayed from September 29 to October 7.

Salve Regina

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To Thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in the valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us.
And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary, Pray for us,
O Holy Mother of God:
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who,
fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help,
and sought Thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To Thee I come; before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate! despise not my petitions,
but in Thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Please continue to pray the Rosary.
