What's this about "Cap'n Crunch" praying a rosary, some may ask?

A little history......

At the time of the Battle of Lepanto, St. Pius V reigned as Pope. He called for a crusade of sorts by urging the Catholic peoples of Europe to pray the Rosary for a Christian victory over the Turks in the coming naval battle. To this day, and in commemoration of the subsequent victory, the Catholic Church observes October 7 as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary in its liturgical calendar.

Never understimate the power of prayer, especially with a new "Turk" in our midst: the Muslim terrorist.

Amen

Ave Maria Virgo Fidelis!

Actually the words I posted, 'Give me an army praying the rosary and I will conquer the world,' were the words of one of the Popes. I could not however find the book from where I had read it.
